  • Day 1 Beijing

    Activities for today: Pick-up at hotel, Badaling Great Wall, Changling Tomb

    At 9:00 AM, we will pick you up at your hotel. Then we will drive to explore the Great Wall at Badaling. This section was built in 1505 AD and known as one of the nine famous passes of the Great Wall and the outpost of the famous Juyongguan Pass. When used by the Chinese to protect their land, this part has had many guards to defend the capital city Beijing. Made of stone and bricks from the mountains, this section is 8meters high and 6 meters wide. It is generally rated as one of the best 40 tourist destinations of China. In the Badaling Great Wall Scenic Area, the China Great Wall Museum was built for those who want more information about the wall.

    After lunch at a local restaurant, we will transfer to explore the Changling Tomb. Being the first built of the 13 Ming tombs, the Changling Tomb buried the Ming Emperor Yongle and his empress Xu. It was the largest (occupying 10 hectares), most advanced and best preserved imperial mausoleum, using the best materials. Built in 1409, even the underground palace of the massive project took four years to complete. Having undergone the weathering of 600 years, the Changling remains intact and resplendent and magnificent.

    The design of the Changling Tomb followed that of Xiao Mausoleum for Emperor Zhu Yuangzhang the dynasty founder: the front is a rectangular courtyard and the rear is the round Treasure Dome (tomb mound), led in by a 15km Spirit Way from south to north. The Spirit Way extends from the stone mausoleum palace as the axis of the entire mausoleum and the symbol of the supreme majesty of the monarch. Northward from the stone archway along the Spirit Way are arranged in order the Big Red Gate, Stele of Achievements and Virtues, Watch Post, and stone animals and figures, the line ending at an exquisite and unique Lingxing Gate, the entrance to the mausoleum proper.

    After sightseeing, go for Beijing roast duck dinner and then drive back to your hotel at 6:00 PM.
