  ► DAY 1 - ARRIVAL BEIJING
 
ARRIVAL IN BEIJING WITH TIME TO RELAX AT THE HOTEL

Welcome to Beijing, China’s cultural and political capital and a real highlight with it’s extraordinary blend of ancient and modern sights. Your guide will greet you at the airport with a transfer by private car to your hotel. The rest of the day is free to relax from the long flight or start to explore the city with the help of your personalised and exclusive Trip Guidebook we send you before the trip. The area around your centrally located hotel is perfect for an introductory walk.

♨ Meals included: None today.

OVERNIGHT DOUBLE HAPPINESS COURTYARD HOTEL  ✭ ✭ ✭

  ► DAY 2 - BEIJING
 
TREKKING ALONG A WILD & SPECTACULAR SECTION OF THE GREAT WALL

For the active and energetic, one of the best ways to see the Great Wall is to walk it and with nearly 4,000 miles of actual wall we need to be selective! The most scenic section to trek within reach of Beijing is at Jinshanling. The trek involves about 6km of walking along the wall itself which averages 4 hours. This is the best way to see and absorb yourself in China’s best known sight, get some superb photos and avoid the tourist crowds.

Return to your hotel with the rest of the evening free or just ask us for suggestions of shows or cultural activities.

♨ Meals included: Hotel Breakfast & Restaurant Lunch.

  ► DAY 3 - BEIJING TO XIAN
 
EXPLORE MORE OF BEIJING’S SIGHTS INDEPENDENTLY BEFORE AN OVERNIGHT TRAIN TO XIAN

A free day to explore the wealth of sights Beijing offers. Besides the must sees the city offers ample opportunity to shop in markets such as Hongqiao, the Silk Market or our favourite, the vast Panjiayuan antique market. For something a bit more sedate we recommend Hou Hai lake and its ancient residential Hutongs which offer a great opportunity to absorb local culture combined with many small cafes, bars and restaurants. For a more contemporary experience the 798 district to the east of the city offers an impressive array of galleries, cafes and restaurants.

Late afternoon make your own way to the station for an overnight sleeper train.

♨ Meals included: Hotel Breakfast.
