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.

    Lily was outstanding, so experienced and took good care of the elder and kids. Also arranged a reasonable visit time and did everything in a good order. The cost-effective tour offered us in-deep Beijing’s explorations to the Great Wall, Forbidden City, Hutong Alleys, Temple of Heaven and Summer Palace. We learned so much from Lily and this Mutianyu Great Wall small group tour was really a highlight of our holiday.

    We had a fantastic time seeing Beijing within 2 days with Candy as our guide! Candy was very knowledgeable about the city, history, and old Hutong culture. She was patient with my old parents and their questions. The Beijing 2-day tour gave us a great introduction to the charming city, from the palaces to the Great Wall and the old alleys. I would highly recommend Travel China Guide, and look forward to going on more trips with them! Thanks again, Candy and all staff!

    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.
