Spend a day discovering two of China's national treasures: the Great Wall and the Ming Dynasty Tombs!

A shuttle bus will pick you up from your hotel in Beijing and take you into the heart of Imperial China.

Start your day with a visit to the Ming Dynasty Tombs which date back over 500 years. Accompanied by your guide, you will be able to explore the Changling Tomb, the final resting place of Emperor Yongle, the first emperor to rule from Beijing.

You will also visit a jade factory before going for lunch at a traditional restaurant.

Next up is a bus ride to Badaling, the most famous and best-preserved part of the Great Wall of China. The highest point of the Wall is around 800m/2625ft above sea level. Here you will be led on a 2-hour walking tour of the Great Wall.

You will return to Beijing by bus with a stop-off to admire traditional silks and the Olympic Stadium.
