Tour Highlights
Mutianyu Great Wall
The well-preserved Mutianyu Great Wall is the essence of the Great Wall in the Ming Dynasty (1368 - 1644), making it one highlight in your Beijing local tour package. With less tourists and marvelous scenery, it has been a hot scenic spot after Badaling Great Wall. Different from other sections, Mutianyu Great Wall has one watchtower in almost every 100 meters (109 yards) which is so dense and rarely seen. The famous watchtowers with special structure include the Zhengguan Terrace and the Big Corner Tower. The plants cover more than ninety percent of the scenic area, so tourist can also see splendid natural scenery in addition to the majestic Great Wall.

Hutong rickshaw tour
Hutongs with courtyards standing on either side represent the ancient Beijing culture. The thousands of hutongs in Beijing are all formed in the Yuan (1271 - 1368), Ming (1368 - 1644) and Qing Dynasties (1644 - 1911) and most are built in the Yuan Dynasty. Most hutongs run east-west with the width less than 9 meters (10 yards). The courtyards are standing close to each other, so the relationship between neighbors are also close which is very precious in modern society. The Beijing local tour package to Hutong enables tourists to understand the primitive life of the locals. The most popular hutongs are Nanluoguxiang, Yandaixie Street, Mao'er Hutong, and Guozijian Street, etc.
