Full description
This full-day bus tour begins with a drive to the Ming Dynasty tombs (Dingling). See the underground palace and mausoleum of Emperor Wan Li.

Stop for a typical Chinese lunch and visit a jade carving shop. After lunch, continue to the Mutianyu section of the Great Wall.

The Mutianyu section is one of the best-preserved sections of the Great Wall, and at one time served to defend the capital and the imperial tombs. To reach the highest point on this part of the wall, a cable car ride is a good choice (additional fee).

Before returning to Beijing, stop to learn about Chinese silk culture at a silk museum and browse the shop for fine silk goods.
