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 was extremely happy with the 2 days Beijing tour. The most important scenic spots were packed into the schedule arrangements. I really enjoyed the Forbidden City, Great Wall and Summer Palace and the cultural experiences like visiting the Hutongs by a rickshaw. It was hard for me to say goodbye to Beijing.

    Overall, the Beijing 2 day tour was great as we visited so many attractions with a professional and knowledgeable guide speaking excellent English. The only thing I wanted to complain about was that it was hard for me to get up at 7 o’clock especially I had just gone through a long flight…

    We splurged for a private tour and were happy with the convenience of that and with the process of setting up an itinerary, they worked with us to fit in everything that we wanted to see. The car they drove us in was very nice and comfortable and they were always on time or early. We would have liked a little more flexibility with changes we needed to make during the day. I traveled pregnant and had some different needs and felt pressured at times. Unfortunately, a lot of the time we felt rushed, I understand that part of that was due to the number of things in our itinerary. There was one time that a major portion of the tour was canceled due to weather without notice, something that we have very much looked forward to, and we had felt rushed up until that point and ended up ending a little early. The main issue that we had was not being given the opportunity to do almost any souvenir shopping. I understand the desire on many tours to not be pushed into buying anything. In our case we were trying to stop and being told that there wasn't time as there was too much more to see, and we much rather would have been given the opportunity to shop on our own. We ended up not having much from the trip, and had to shop at shops around our hotel rather than at the actual sites. I'm not sure if this is isolated to our guide, I hope so because the company was great to work with other than that. ... More
