  • Price Includes
Day01 Beijing
Tiananmen Square
In the morning, you will be picked up by our guide and driver at the lobby of your hotel in the downtown area. Today's private sightseeing starts from the remarkable and world's largest square - Tiananmen Square, located at the center of Beijing City. Immediately north is the well-preserved imperial palace complex, the Forbidden City. You enter that ancient place, full of regal history, passing over the Golden Water Bridge. You make your own arrangements for lunch. Our guide will give you advice. 

In the afternoon, your tour will continue visiting one of the beautiful royal landscaped gardens - Jingshan Park. Standing at the top of the hill inside this park, you can see the panorama of the Forbidden City. Then, you will be escorted to visit the Temple of Heaven, which was initially built for the emperors of the Ming and Qing Dynasties to worship the god of heaven for peace and good harvest.

Day02 Beijing
Great Wall
You will be picked up early in the morning at your hotel by our guide and driver. After a drive of about 1.5 hours, you reach the Badaling Great Wall, one of the most famous sections of the Great Wall. Hiking on the wall for 1-2 hours will allow you to experience the steepness of the wall and appreciate the charming scenery. Then, we drive towards another famous section of the Great Wall - Mutianyu. On the way to Mutianyu, we will stop at Juyongguan Great Wall and leave you some free time for photo-taking. Here, you make your own arrangements for lunch. Since the restaurants near the site are shopping-tourist restaurants with low-quality food, we kindly suggest you have a hearty breakfast at your hotel, or prepare some snacks for lunch. In the afternoon, we continue on and visit the Mutianyu Great Wall (a round-way cable car trip is included) and hike for a while to further explore the world-famous Great Wall of China.

Meals: No meals, advice freely available
Day03 Beijing
Forbidden City
Our guide and driver will pick you up from your hotel in the morning and transport you to the Summer Palace. It is the largest and most well-preserved of the royal gardens. Nowadays, it is famous for its amazing landscape and the grand architecture. Next stop is the Lama Temple. As the national centre of Lama Administration in the Qing Dynasty, it has been perfectly preserved. Visiting it, you will get to know to some extent the Lama culture. Your trip draws to an end after you have a Hutong tour. People say that the real culture of Beijing is the culture of the Hutong and Courtyards. They attract more tourists from home and abroad than the high-rise buildings and large mansions. After the Hutong tour, you will fully understand this sentiment. After the private trip is completed, we will transfer you back to your hotel.

As I know, it is no problem to apply for the 144-hour visa-free transit based on your itinerary. But there are also two necessary conditions that you need to meet. One is that you have to be the citizen of 53 countries that are opened to apply for visa-free transit in China. The other one is you should take your valid passport and the flight ticket to the third country with confirmed dates and seats.

144-hour visa-free stay in Bejing
As of January 1st,2019 visa requirements for Canadian citizens have changed. Is the 144 hour visa-free stay in Beijing still available? We would be flying from UlaanBaatar through Beijing to Canada.

As I know, China's 144-hour visa-free transit policy allows passengers from 53 countries or regions to Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region for no more than 144 hours (6 days) without holding a visa. And Canada is within the 53 countries. You need to take your valid passport and the flight ticket to the third country with confirmed dates and seats as well as fully completed Arrival/Departure Card to apply for visa exemption when you arrive at Beijing airport.

Hong Kong - Pekin - Hong Kong
Hola, puedo tener una visa de 144 horas si voy y vuelvo de Hong Kong a Pekin?

Answered by Paul | Nov. 12, 2018 00:47

If your travel route is from Hong Kong to Beijing and back to Hong Kong, I am afraid that you are not qualified for the 144-hour visa exemption. According to the policy, your starting place and the destination should be different countries or regions out of Mainland China.

Hola, gracias x la respuesta. Si hago Hong Kong, Pekín, Taipei, Hong Kong puedo acceder a la visa 144? Puedo hacer escala en Taipei y desde el mismo aeropuerto volar a Hong Kong? O debo pasar 24 horas en Taiwán?
Answered by Paul | Nov. 14, 2018 16:08

As far as I know, the route from Hong Kong to Taibei with a stop at Beijing meets the application requirements. While there is more than one requirement to apply for the visa exemption in China. For example, your nationality should be included in the list of 53 qualified countries and you should have bought the ticket to Taibei with confirmed seat and date and so on. What's more, the region of Taiwan also offers free-visa policy for some countries. For the detailed and accurate information, I kindly suggest you contact the airport immigration inspection directly.
