How to get a Free Transit Visa?

If you are travelling via Beijing to a third country or region, you might use a free transit visa for your Beijing Trip. Qualifications are: 

First, you are one of the 53 qualified countries for visa exemption. Second, you need to have a transit flight ticket from Country A to Beijing and then to Country B. For example, you take flight from US to Beijing and then to South Korea. Third, you will stay in Beijing within 144 hours. If you can meet all the requirements, you may apply for your visa-free stay permit upon arrival at Beijing airport. We will offer information and assistance.

Why no shopping?

The shopping stores, factories that are arranged during the tour are something like a trap. It is well-known that the agent will get commissions for your time spent there, and from your purchases. The prices of the products in those shops or factories are usually several times higher than the actual prices. We believe you are coming for a good travel experience, not for expensive shopping. We DO NOT arrange it in our tours. 

While, please keep in mind that the vendors or shops at the entrance or exit of the sightseeing spots cannot be avoided. You may just ignore them when passing by. For clients who like to do some shopping, we are glad to recommend the local market or shopping malls which are popular among the locals.

Any suggestions for food?

China has a wide range of food selections from street food to fine dining and the price is quite fair. In our 2 day tours of Beijing, we leave meals on your own so you may try various local food freely with the help of your guide. We usually suggest our clients have a hearty breakfast at the hotel in the morning and have a light meal for lunch, which can also save time for sightseeing.

Any tips for the Great Wall Hiking?

Great Wall Hiking at Mutianyu: This section of the Great Wall is suitable for all travelers. It is relatively less crowded in travel high season so you can get better travel experience here. For young people, you may hike up to the Great Wall or take chairlift up and luge down. For seniors, the round-way cable car would be the best way to save energy. 

Great Wall Hiking at Badaling: There are two directions hiking on Badaling Great Wall. The southern part has less people but you need to return the same way. Also, the line is shorter. The northern part is more popular and has more people of course. It is suggested to avoid Badaling section during the peak season or holidays. Mutianyu or Jinshanling Great Wall is more recommended for the period. 

Great Wall Hiking at Jinshanling: The moderate hiking from west section of Simatai to Jinshanling takes about 6 kilometers (4 miles) and 3 hours. There are some steep stairs and unrepaired sections in between, so we recommend only young and middle-aged travelers doing this trip. It is for sure a paradise for hikers and shutterbugs. Get prepared with comfortable walking shoes, and we will provide enough bottled water.

    I loved the Beijing tour to Forbidden City and have strongly recommended your company to all my friends and family.

    Sunny was extremely helpful in planning my vacation. She made it very easy for me to deal with an overseas tour company. I was extremely happy with what I saw along the way, the Forbidden City, Great Wall and Temple of Heaven, the most well-known landmarks of Beijing.

    Also, I had a lot of fun with my guide Tina who had a unique personality. Very enjoyable!

    Beijing guide's service was friendly and the introductions to all the scenic spots were in place. There was no shopping activity or detours in the whole process and the itinerary of purely visiting was a great satisfaction for us!

    The hiking tour started from the west section from Simatai Great Wall on Day 2. The driver and the guide were very punctual and it took about 3 hours from downtown to the Simatai Great Wall. We were immensely enjoyable in the constantly changing perspectives. The destination was the Jinshanling Great Wall and the whole hiking route was around 4 miles. Don’t forget sunscreen and a hearty breakfast before departure. ... More

    The attractions were reasonably arranged by our consultant and the itinerary was also perfectly executed. Very good service and I would like to travel with your company for more Beijing sites like the Forbidden City and Beijing Zoo.

    PS: Energy snacks would be good on the second-day Great Wall hiking because there is no decent restaurant near the Great Wall.

    Our family traveled to Beijing and climbed the Great Wall in a good day.
    Beijing tour guide had a reasonable arrangement, avoiding a lot of waiting time. We would have planned to travel freely, but because of the old people and children, we finally chose to travel with the group. Very satisfactory!
    All the details were taken into consideration. The tour guide’s explanation was concise and focused. We really learned a lot of historical facts from this Beijing 2 days itinerary.

    We were extremely satisfied with the Beijing 2-day tour.
    Our guide was very attentive to our needs and helped us all the time especially the elderly and children in our group. She picked us up at the hotel and the airport timely and offered great service.
    We liked all the scenic spots we visited including the Great Wall, Hutongs, Forbidden City and Summer Palace. I will certainly recommend any people I know that will travel to China, to use TravelChinaGuide!
