After pickup from your hotel, a private car takes you to the Badaling section of the Great Wall. Zigzagging its way from east to west across the northern edge of the ancient Chinese empire, the Great Wall is an incredible exercise in large-scale construction. The Badaling section is well-preserved and manages to retain a sense of authenticity in spite of several "prettification campaigns". Pace yourself as you climb up this war-ravaged icon.|
Spend your afternoon strolling around the Summer Palace, where your professional guide offers her knowledge of the countless gardens, halls, palaces, and pavilions. The Summer Palace has served as a royal summer home since the Qing Dynasty, but not until Emperor Qianlong remodeled it for his mother did it become the Summer Palace as it exists today. Learn a few historical anecdotes and half-myths while wandering amidst the beautiful scenery admiring the efforts of the ruling class to recreate heaven on earth.
