In the morning you will be picked up and driven to the Temple of Heaven, which originally served as a vast stage for the emperors to pray for a good harvest. The temple was built during Ming Dynasty and the remarkable triple-gabled circular temples have come to symbolize Beijing.
In the afternoon, you can choose to visit one of the below Great Walls:
Drive about 2.5 hours to Mutianyu Great Wall. Once arrival you will enjoy about 3 hours of walking along this wonderful ancient wall. See with your own eyes this national treasure and photography the magnificent scenery of the wall winding its way across the mountains. Comparing to Badaling, Wutianyu Great Wall is less crowded. You can assend the great wall by cable cars or walk up.
Drive about 2.5 hours to Huanghuacheng Great Wall. Less touristy than other parts of the Great Wall close to Beijing, Huanghuacheng is an extremely rewarding, and impossibly steep, section of the Wall. Undulating across the hillsides east and west of a small reservoir and offering spectacular views of the surrounding countryside, it has undergone only partial restoration and is refreshingly free of the hawkers who can make visits to other sections a trying experience.
On the way back to the downtown, stop to overlook Olympic Green. (Optional: If you are interested in the local life, we can also drop you off at the Donghuamen night market or Sanlitun Bar Street, where you can get closer to local Beijing).
