Day 1 | Tianjin Cruise Port - Beijing | Mutianyu Great Wall
This less-crowded section of the Great Wall is about 3½ hours' driving from downtown Beijing. A cable car takes you to a good section, where you can walk along the wall, through the watchtowers, and enjoy superb views as it snakes across the hills and mountains. Hike "the most beautiful and interesting part of the Great Wall" - between the 14th and 23rd watch towers - acknowledged by hikers as "the golden route". We include the round-way cable car or round-way chairlift/toboggan on the Great Wall. Note: Cable car station at No.6 watchtower. Chairlift/Toboggan station at No.14 watchtower. If you want to take cable car up & chairlift/toboggan down, you need to pay the price difference RMB100 per person in cash at your own expense.
Day 2 | Beijing - Tianjin Cruise Port | Tian'anmen Square + Forbidden City
Tian'anmen Square is the largest city square in the center of Beijing, which sits to the north of it, separating it from the Forbidden City. It has great cultural significance as it was the site of several key events in Chinese history. It is hardly to say that you have ever been to Beijing if you don't visit the square! Like the Times Square in New York, Red Square in Moscow and St. Peter's Square, Tiananmen Square is a must-visit place for traveler to Beijing.
The Forbidden City was home to 24 emperors between 1368 and 1911. This "city within a city" is a World Heritage site, and is the largest and the best preserved ancient imperial architecture complex in the world, with a great square, halls, and gates that contrast with intricate halls, gardens, courtyards, and quarters. The exhibitions, both permanent and temporary, are all important treasures of ancient China.
You will be transferred back to Tianjin Cruise Port after lunch and arrive no later than 4:00 pm.
