Description

Start your adventurous day at China's Great Wall, an approximate 1 1/2 hour drive from downtown Beijing. One of the greatest engineering feats in human history, the Great Wall was built more than 2,500 years ago to protect Chinese civilization from fearsome northern tribes. The expanse of the wall winds over deserts, grasslands, mountains and plateaus, stretching a staggering 5,550 miles (8,850 km) across China.

This experience takes you away from the tourist crowds to the Mutianyu section, one of the wall's oldest parts that hasn't been fully restored from its authentic state beyond safety measures. Explore the monumental walkway with virtually nobody else in sight on an easy hike that is suited to varying abilities with plenty of rest stops along the way.

You'll see at least a dozen impressive watchtowers that snake off in various directions over the horizon. Under the shade of the secluded rampart, enjoy views over the countryside as you sip chilled champagne paired with popular local delicacies. Delight in regional foods full of subtle and sophisticated flavors!

Glean historical insights from your guide, who will describe other functions of the Great Wall during the Ming Dynasty, including its border controls and regulated transport of people and goods along the Silk Road. After your tour and lunch at Mutianyu, your guide will transport you back to your Beijing hotel.

As an alternative, ask your guide to drop you off at the Art District 798, a labyrinth of warehouses comprising art galleries and studios, boutiques, museums, bars and caf├ęs. Here, you'll find cutting-edge, contemporary Chinese art along with quirky clothes shops and bookshops to add to the mix. You can enjoy a drink or have dinner at a local restaurant before making your own way back to Beijing.
