Tips for One-day Glimpse of Historic Beijing

Time-honored historic city, Beijing is teeming with ancient sights, diverse shopping spaces and gourmet Chinese food. You can easily spend a vacation in Beijing without running out of things to see, do and experience if time permits! However, for those who only have a short stay in Beijing, there is still plenty to explore! Here is a little advice on how to make travel plans for one-day trip in Beijing.

Tip 1: Explore outside the city proper to see Great Wall
Badaling Great Wall

It is manageable (but very difficult for first time visitors) to see the Great Wall at Badaling, the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square all in one day while visiting Beijing. If you prefer to do this one-day trip on your own instead of hiring a tour guide, here are some tips for how to plan your day trip in Beijing. First of all, you can have someone write Great Wall Badaling, cable car entrance and Forbidden City, Shenwu Gate in Chinese characters on a hard-paper card. Then ask the hotel staff for help to negotiate a day-rate price with a taxi driver. Most drivers are more than happy to be at your service with one guaranteed fare for the whole day. By western standards, the cab fare is usually quite worth it. After the driver drop you off at the Great Wall, have him wait for you at the foothill till you get back down to meet him (it is customary to pay half the fare to your driver so he can buy lunch while you walk the wall).

Tip 2: Explore imperial sights within city proper
Forbidden City

After the visit to the Great Wall at Badaling, you can have the cab driver drive you back to town and drop you off at Shenwu Gate and start your tour of the Forbidden City. You can spend as long as you like in the palace complex to see ancient imperial buildings and other sights in there. Exiting the palace, you can get a quick look at the Tiananmen Square and the landmarks sitting on the square like Chairman Mao Memorial Hall and more. After that, have your cab driver take you to the Temple of Heaven Park for some sightseeing. The park area used to be a place for worship of God and ancient ceremonies held by Chinese emperors. You will see plenty of ancient buildings over there, which are a far cry from those in Forbidden City. Lastly, complete your day trip with a visit to the Summer Palace. Tour Ends!

Overall, you can still have a fun day in Beijing!
