Day 3 Beijing
Great Wall of China
Great Wall, Beijing
The last day of your Beijing walking tours 3 days will be spent on the Badaling or Mutianyu Great Wall according to your choice. Since the Great Wall is far away from downtown area, we will arrange a private transfer for you. It takes about 1.5 hours on the way. You will have enough time to hike on the wall.

Badaling Great Wall is the best-preserved section of the Great Wall with a history of about 2,500 years. Besides hiking on the wall to see the exquisite techniques of this ancient defense system, visitors can also learn more about its history in China Great Wall Museum.

Mutianyu Great Wall has less tourists than Badaling. With the vegetation coverage over 96 percent, this section boasts marvelous and unique scenery all year round. The dense watchtowers are rarely seen among all Great Wall sections. The famous scenic spots include the Zhengguan Terrace and the Big Corner Tower.

How to Choose: Both Badaling and Mutianyu are majestic with beautiful scenery. If you travel on weekends or holidays, Mutianyu Great Wall is more recommended with less tourists. During other time, both of them are enjoyable.

As there is no decent restaurant nearby the Great Wall, we kindly suggest you have a big breakfast at your hotel in the morning and take some snacks for a light lunch. After the Great Wall hiking, your wonderful 3 days Beijing walking tour concludes, and we will drive you back to the hotel.
