FAQs on Beijing

How long should I stay for a basic private Beijing tour package?
In addition to the arrival day and departure day, two or three full days are necessary for first-time travelers to visit the highlight attractions and gain insight into this city. Here is the most popular way of exploring the city. Have one full day to visit the Great Wall and Sacred Way. Another full day is needed to visit the Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square and the Temple of Heaven. If you have ample time, you can schedule one more day to visit the Summer Palace, old Hutong alleys, Lama Temple and the lovely giant pandas in the zoo.
I have heard the Great Wall has several sections, which one do you recommend?
The Badaling section is the most famous and should be first choice for China Great Wall vacation. It was the first section opened to the public and the wall here is more grand and amazing, especially for taking photos. However, if your trip is during peak seasons or Chinese holidays, you may consider visiting the less-crowded but equally majestic Mutianyu section.
Are sightseeing spots in Beijing physically demanding? Will there be too much walking involved?
Yes. Most of sightseeing spots such as the Forbidden City and the Summer Palace are very large, and demand a fair amount of walking. However, you can ask your private guide to slow down the travel pace. Although there are many stairs on the Great Wall, you can take the cable car should you prefer. A pair of comfortable shoes is always highly recommended when traveling.
When is the best time to visit the Great Wall?
The amazing scenery of the Great Wall changes throughout the seasons. From March to early April, the wall is dotted with apricot flowers and peach blossom along the mountain range. You can view the luxurious green plants surrounding the wall when climbing it between May and September. Then from mid October to early November, it is beautifully decorated by red leaves. Although the weather is cold and challenging from late November to February, visitors get to see the snow-covered Great Wall set in a tranquil landscape.

In comparison, it is more enjoyable to visit the Great Wall in April, May, September and October when the weather is neither too hot nor too cold.
Is it possible to visit two parts of the Great Wall within one day?
Yes, we can arrange for clients to visit two different sections of the Great Wall within one day. Both Badaling and Mutianyu are very popular, so these two are the most exhilarating combination for a full day private Great Wall excursion. Alternatively, visitors may choose to visit Juyuongguan Great Wall together with Badaling instead of Mutianyu.
How and where do I apply for a 72 hours visa-free transit permit in Beijing?
First of all, you need to make sure that you are qualified to take advantage of the 72 hours visa-free transit policy. You can click here to read the relevant details.

With all the necessary documents, you can apply for the 72-hour visa-free transit permit on arriving at the Capital International Airport. There is a special counter/lane for the 72-hour free transit at the immigration, so passengers can go there directly by following the signs.
Do we need to wait in line to buy the admission tickets at tourist attractions?
No. Your guide will handle all the admission tickets for you. She/ He will buy tickets in the group ticket window very quickly. Some of the very popular sightseeing spots have online ticketing system, and we will reserve the tickets for you in advance.
If I want to visit somewhere else for one or two days from Beijing, what's your recommendation?
Many travelers have the Terracotta Warriors on their holiday bucket lists, so one or two days trip to Xian is recommended. It is very easy to make it as flights and high-speed trains between the two cities operate frequently every day. Besides, you may also consider visiting Luoyang Longmen Grottoes and Shaolin Temple by high-speed train.
We are a family of two adults and two children under 10 years old. Can we be accommodated in one hotel room?
Yes. Two adults and two little children can be accommodated in one room, but it is not recommended for a comfortable stay. Most of hotels have a king size bed with 1.8 meters wide in a double room and two single beds each with 1.2 meters wide in a twin room. One of your children could take an additional 0.9 meter wide bed. The other one needs to share a bed with parent. The bed size may vary a little in different hotels.
Do you have suggestions as what is good to do in the evenings in Beijing?
Beijing offers colorful nightlife choices for you. Most travelers like to see traditional Chinese performances, e.g. Peking Opera, Kung Fu or Acrobatic Show. Some may savor the pubs or clubs in the Sanlitun Bar Street and its nearby embassy area. Some enjoy the nightly snack markets on Dongdan Street, Xidan Street or in the Longfusi Temple area. Taking a leisurely stroll along the Chang'an Street to observe the night scene can also be a good option.
