This morning you will visit Badaling to experience at first hand the wonder of the Great Wall, a priceless heritage left by Chinese ancestry. Can you imagine how people of ancient China labored at such a great project with their hands alone? Without modern machinery, equipment and construction materials, the Wall was well designed and built following local geographical features. As you stand on the Wall and see its grandness, you will find it is no wonder that the Great Wall has the vigor to surprise the whole world. To celebrate and commemorate this moment, we especially prepare some red wine for a group toast on the Great Wall. We do not arrange lunch today as the condition of the local restaurants near to Badaling cannot meet TCG’s standard, so our suggestion is that you have a big breakfast in the hotel and take some snacks or fast-food. In the afternoon continue your journey to the Sacred Way and the Ming Tomb. Conclude the full day travel after taking a glance at the Bird’s Nest (Olympic National Stadium) en route to the downtown area.
