Day05 Beijing
Badaling Great Wall
Besides historical sites in downtown area, the outskirt of Beijing is also worth exploring. Today, we first arrange a half-day tour for you to the Badaling Great Wall, which is 50 miles away from the city center. Built along rolling ridges, stone steps can be a little steep in some sections and it will take a lot of energy to finish the whole hiking. Please wear comfortable shoes and have a big breakfast at the hotel. Pack some snacks and bottled water for there is few booths on the wall for food supply.

Today's lunch is not arranged by us. You are advised to have some fast food near the Great Wall. Our guide will recommend some restaurants for your choice. Before starting the sightseeing plan in the afternoon, we will stop by a jade factory, and then drive to the next stop, Sacred Way. Vivid sculptures of auspicious beasts and guards on the two sides have been protecting this 4-mile path to the Ming Tombs for nearly 500 years.

On the way back to the urban area, we will pass by the National Olympic Stadium (Bird's Nest) and the National Aquatics Center (Water Cube). The buildings will be lightened in the evening. You can take good pictures of them at a distance.

Meals: Western buffet breakfast
Day06 Beijing - Xian
Going through a tired trip on the previous day, you will have a relaxing time on your last day in Beijing. After breakfast, our guide will pick you up at the hotel and take you to the once imperial resort, Summer Palace. The Long Gallery and Marble Boat at the lakeside are good viewing points. After that, you will be led to a pearl store before an a la carte lunch at a well-decorated restaurant. The meal is valued at CNY150.00 per person and is included in our price.

Having seen many magnificent royal buildings, we will arrange an exploration of the old Beijingers' lifestyle among Hutongs. These narrow flagstone-paved alleys are like time tunnels with quaint gray-brick courtyards along the way. Wandering around must make you feel like being dragged back to the past.

Your guided Beijing tour will end at this point. The guide will escort you to the airport for your flight to the next destination of this China small group tour, Xian.

Day07 Xian
Terracotta Army, Xian
Xian is one of the oldest cities in China with over 3,000 years of history. Today's sightseeing will start with the Terracotta Army Museum, where you can see the superb handicrafts early in the Qin Dynasty (221 - 207 BC). After around one hour's drive, you will arrive at the museum. There, thousands of pottery soldiers and chariots were made to reproduce the military formation of the once invincible Qin army. This huge project was buried to protect the first emperor of the united China, Qin Shi Huang, in the afterlife. You must wonder how the terracotta soldiers were made. After admiring this great wonder, our guide will lead you to a pottery-making factory to find the answers.

At noon, we will arrange a home cooked a la carte lunch in a local family. Not only can you taste the authentic Xian cuisines, the hospitable host may also teach you one or two dishes if you are interested. The lunch costs CNY120.00 per person and is also included in our price. Then, continue your trip to the Jianfu Temple to visit the Xian Museum and have a look of the 1,200-year-old Small Wild Goose Pagoda inside. You may also wander around the temple to feel its quietness and historical atmosphere.

This evening will be highlighted by a splendid performance at the Shaanxi Song and Dance Theater. Actors dressed in splendid costumes will perform stories that happened during the Tang Dynasty (618 - 907). You will be treated with featured Dumpling Dinner while enjoying the show.

Meals: Western buffet breakfast, a la carte lunch, dinner
Day08 Departure from Xian
Our travel consultant with her clients
It is the last day of your one-week China small group tour. But you still have a whole morning to further explore the city. After breakfast, our guide will pick you up at the hotel and transfer you to the ancient City Wall. The well-preserved City Wall was originally built during the Ming Dynasty (1368 - 1644) to protect the old city of Xian. Nowadays, cycling along the wall is a must-do activity for many travelers. You are recommended to rent a bike on your own expense to have a quick view of the whole city. After that, you will be accompanied to the Shaanxi History Museum. More than 370,000 precious items are on display, varying from the primitive stone tools of the Prehistoric Times to the daily supplies during the Qing Dynasty (1644 - 1911).

At noon, a farewell lunch will be arranged in a famous restaurant and the price of CNY120.00 per person is included in our price. After lunch, our guide will escort you to the hotel and say goodbye. Due to different flight schedules of the group members, transfer service to the Xian Airport is not included in our arrangement. Please get to the airport on your own at least 3 hours before your homeward flight.

If you need help to reserve the onward flights or plan an extension itinerary, please feel free to contact us. Thank you for travelling with us!
