1 Day Bus Tour: Mutianyu Great Wall, Ming Tombs, Olympic Stadium

As the transfer stop, Beijing attracts me lot, even though it is not my first time in Beijing. It is summer in China now, and the good time to have a Beijing tour. Because of the layover time in Beijing, I booked 1 day bus tour online, offered by a Beijing China travel agency. Last time in Beijing, I visited the most famous Badaling Great Wall, but this time I chosen what I most wanted places – Mutianyu Great Wall and Ming Tombs.

The tour guide and driver picked me up on our departure time. After breakfast, I started my journey to Ming Tombs. Entered the car, I found the other tourists were all Americans, and we become friends quickly. About one and a half drive time, I arrived at Ming Tombs. This was the first time I enjoyed the real coffin chamber. Walking through a green way where placed various big animal status and supposed to be the Ming guides. I visited the most famous Dingling and Changling, they are the two largest coffin chambers in Ming Tombs. Entering the buildings, I was surprised how they built them in that ancient time. They are so ornate and well-preserved, buried 13 emperors in Ming Dynasty.

Summer Scenery of Mutianyu Great Wall

After traditional Chinese lunch, we were transferred to Mutianyu Great Wall. It is far away from Beijing downtown than Badaling Great Wall, but well worthy of your visit as the most beautiful portion among sections of the Great Wall. Less crowded than Badaling section, Mutianyu section is the best choice to enjoy the beauties and breathe the fresh air in suburbs of Beijing. It is very short walk from the parking lot to the base of Mutianyu section where you can take cable car to the wall. What an experience to seeing this small section of the Great Wall of the 7 wonders in ancient world. Perfect weather made the day extremely enjoyable and one I will never forget.

I would leave Beijing tomorrow, but I could remember this fantastic Beijing!

1 Day Bus Tour: Badaling Great Wall, Ming Tombs, Olympic Stadium

I am as excited as this first time to Beijing. Although the main aim is the business conference, I have my own time to visit this legend city with long history. Because of the limited time and alone, I booked the 1 day bus tour online.

According to friends had visited Beijing, the Great Wall is worth to enjoy the beautiful scenery, magnificent momentum, etc. Also, Beijing is a vintage but modern city before this tour I realized in my mind. Of course, the 1 day bus tour to Badaling Great Wall, Ming Tombs and Olympic Stadium is the best choice, they show the big different in ancient and modern Beijing.

Badaling Great Wall

After breakfast, the tour guide picked me up at about 7:00, and drove us to the Ming Tombs first. On the way to this first spot, I met many new friends, most were along in Beijing like me, so we have a good talk during this tour. Arrived at Ming Tombs, I was so interested in these real tombs, I have never seen real tomb before this tour. The tour guide told us this is the tombs group for 13 emperors in Ming Dynasty. In fact, the Sacred Road is more fantastic than tombs. It stands various stone animals, as natural as though they were living. I was always looking forward to the next destination – Badaling Great Wall.

After the local Chinese traditional lunch, we were drove to the most famous – Badaling Great Wall. As one of the world wonders, the Great Wall let us down, especially the section we would visit – Badaling section. Having considered the busy conferences in Beijing, I have chosen the cable car to reach the top. Luckily, sit in the cable car I could overlook the whole significant view of the Badaling Great Wall. Especially, I enjoyed the grand momentum by overlooking the whole section. I have pictured various photos through different points of view. I would put on the wall in my room. It shocked me in my life!

On the way back to hotel, I also visited the Olympic Stadium including Bird Nest and Water Cube, so appropriate name. Different with the before two spots, these expresses the atmosphere of modern Beijing. They are worthy of the Olympic Stadium.

Ended of this tour, I have liked this city deeply in various sides. What a pity I have a little time in Beijing, or I must enjoy all spots.
