The highlight of today's trip is a visit to the Great Wall. The part we will visit is Badaling, which is the best section on the "neck of the huge dragon". Since the food offered in the restaurants there was not well spoken of by our former clients, we would like to leave it on your own and advise you have some fast food around the site. 

In the afternoon, we visit the Sacred Way. Then we drive by the Bird's Nest (Olympic National Stadium) to the urban area. You will have a chance to take some photos of this wonderful building.

Then you still have some time to experience old Beijing history and special culture in the old Hutongs before taking the flight to the second destination of your 9 days China itinerary, Xian. Landing in Xian, your local guide and driver will meet you at the airport and take you to the hotel.

Then we have a local family visit with the home cooked a la carte lunch (valued at CNY120.00 per person and included in our price). It is quite special and exciting that you come to a foreign country, learn how to cook the local food and dine with the local people in their family. 

In the afternoon, continue appreciating the city's long history by visiting the Small Wild Goose Pagoda and Xian Museum. Your evening will be enlightened by the Tang Dynasty Music and Dance Show while partaking of the traditional food, the dumpling dinner.

After an a la carte lunch (valued at CNY120.00 per person and included in our price), you will be transferred to the Great Mosque. For those who love collecting souvenirs and gifts for families and friends, the Muslim bazaar beside the mosque is a wonderful place to go.
