Badaling Great Wall & Forbidden City Bus Day Tour

I booked a Beijing 1 day bus tour through a Beijing China travel agency, I highly recommended it. This tour took us to visit the Badaling Great Wall, Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square. I was as excited as I just seen them in books before. This small group gathered just English speaking travelers, so we had good communication during this tour.

My tour guide met me at 8:00am, and transferred to Tiananmen Square. So large square in the center of Beijing city, that I cannot reach the side in short time. According to the tour guide, Tiananmen Square is the largest city center square in the world. Today it is the place of celebration and relaxation for the Chinese as well as foreign visitors. Included are Mao's Mausoleum, the Great Hall of the People and the Monument to the People's Heroes, the Tiananmen Square is always the must-visited spot for most foreign tourists and every Chinese.

Forbidden City

Forbidden City, stands opposite to Tiananmen Square, restored these enormous and numerous buildings. We just have 2 hours to visit this huge wooden construction group, so the tour guide led us along with the axle wire to visit the most important hall in Forbidden City. In one word, this huge imperial palace seemed like a big courtyard of local Beijing.

Badaling Great Wall

What attracted me most was the Badaling Great Wall, one section of the Great Wall of 7 wonders in ancient world. After a traditional Chinese lunch, we moved to Badaling section. On the way to Badaling, we were all excited to share our ideas about the Badaling, but once we arrived at base, we all kept silence, shocked by its grand momentum and beautiful scenery. Absent of the professional equipment to climb the Great Wall, we decided to take cable car to enjoy the whole view of Badaling section. Also there are several options for wall walking to experience the huge structure personally. Walking to the top, I had heard of some story about this Badaling section and the whole sections of the Great Wall. Standing on the top, I try my best to image how they built this world wonder without any modern machine…What an unbelievable feat!

Thank you Linda for making my Beijing tour more memorable. I would certainly recommend Linda and this Beijing China travel agency!
