Comfortable Bus Day Tour to Badaling Great Wall and Summer Palace

I caught a chance in Beijing and enjoy the beauties and hear their stories are happy things for me. So I booked this 1 day bus tour before arrived Beijing. This Beijing China tour operator gave me more helps and conveniences. They could inform me the confirmed time and itinerary before this tour. The most important was they are so punctual.

Beautiful Sunshine on Badaling Great Wall

Having breakfast in hotel, I met the tour guide in 8:00am, and transferred to Badaling Great Wall in one hour. On the way to destination, I met many English speaking friends, and they were all along or couple. This small group let me feel as well as private tour. Arrived at the Great Wall at Badaling, we were shocked by its momentum, scenery, of course the thousands of tourists in front of us. The tour guide informed us, as the first opened section, Badaling section is more famous than other sections, so it always crowded with many tourists every day. Took cable car was the consistent decision among our group, and you can choose not take cable car, just climb. On cable car, I enjoyed the surrounding natural beauties including the ridgesandpeaks, trees, and extended the Great Wall. However, if at all possible, I would strongly recommend going to any other section of the Great Wall if you can. Heard of tour guide, the Mutianyu Section is the favorite section for many foreigners, might as well try!

The Entry of Summer Palace

After lunch, we were drove back to Beijing downtown to visit the Summer Palace, the imperial garden.  Although not mentioned in the same breath as the Forbidden City it really is an astounding place to visit. Crowded with tourists and local Beijingers, Summer Palace is good place for playing card, Taiji, dancing, etc. They have their daily life in this beautiful garden. It's really very beautiful, some of the prettiest gardens and architecture around. This is indeed one of the best parks not only China but perhaps in the whole world. It has all the details of Chinese gardening philosophy, a natural big lake as well as huge palace and temples. Do not miss it if any chance.

This tour is end, but I still have many spots want to appreciate. If have any enough time, I would have a professional Beijing tour, to explore the famous Beijing!
