Day 1 Arrival in Beijing
Sincere greetings & airport-hotel transfer. Hutong visit.
Our guide will meet you outside the customs at the Capital Airport and transfer you to the hotel. After a short rest, a Hutong Tour is arranged. Hutong is a typical lane or narrow street between rows of courtyards. Different from the Forbidden City, which is the symbol of the royal family, the winding Hutongs present the common Beijingners' lives.

Meals: No meals, advice freely available
Day 2 Beijing
Tiananmen Square, Forbidden City, Temple of Heaven. (B)
Forbidden City
Your private exploration begins with a visit to Tiananmen Square, a holy place to Chinese people where many constructions of historical and monumental significance are standing. Strolling across till its north end, you will reach the world's largest and best-preserved imperial palace complex, the Forbidden City, where 24 emperors have lived with their royal families. The afternoon excursion will then take you to the Temple of Heaven, where the emperors worshiped the heaven and prayed for grain harvest and rainfall. It is the existing largest and highest ranking complex of sacred places in China.

Our clients visting the Great Wall
In the morning, you will travel to Badaling to visit one of the greatest man-made projects on earth, China Great Wall. On the dragon-like winding wall, you will appreciate beacon towers lying at some advantageous strategic forts as well as the charming natural scenery at the foot of the wall. Afterwards, continue the trip to the Sacred Way, which is a rather long road decorated by stone statues and plants on both sides, leading you to the Ming Tomb. Based on Chinese traditional Feng-shui theory, the Ming Tomb is a harmonious combination of mausoleum constructions, mountains and rivers. On the way back to downtown, stop off at the Bird's Nest (Olympic National Stadium), where you could admire the marvelous building at close quarters.

Thank you Bill, was not sure as we will be entering China again twice although not staying as we are on a cruise ship. Terrified at landing in China without a visa. Have tried everywhere to get advice on this trip.Have you actually done this before.

Clicked the wrong hand should have been thumbs up sorry.
Answered by Bill from USA | Aug. 08, 2018 22:44

Yes, if you enter China twice and you still leave for another country (not the country you come from), it’s ok for you to get the stay permit twice.

I'd like to visit Longting Gorge and Guyaju Caves in one day, travelling from Sanlitun in Beijing...
Any idea how much a cab/taxi would cost to do this trip in a day?
Answers (1)
Answered by Tom from RUSSIA | Dec. 11, 2017 20:39

I guess you refer to Longqing Gorges?
If you will go to the places by a taxi, it may cost CNY700-800.

Or you can go there by bus & taxi:
First, take a taxi to Deshengmen within 15 minutes.
Then, take Bus 919 Express to Shiheying and transfer to Bus Y15, get off at Jiuxianzhen Gucheng Lukou. Walk northwest for 10 minutes to the gorges.
Then to Guyaju, take Bus Y43 and transfer to Bus Y45 at Yanqing Beizhan. Get off at Dongmenying, and then take a taxi to the Caves.
As for back, take Bus Y40 and transfer to Bus 919 Express at Sijiaying.

Here is the arrival procedure: Arriving - Inspection & Quarantine - Exit and Entry Frontier Inspection - Baggage Claim - Customs Inspection

We can see that you have to go through the immigration. You may stay in the hourly lounges in the airport. Shower is available there. Don't worry!
