Description

Leaving from your hotel in Beijing, spend a day discovering two major monuments of the Middle Kingdom.

A shuttle bus will pick you up and take you to Badaling where you will find best-preserved part of the Great Wall of China. You can reach the top of the Great Wall on foot or by cable car (supplement) and enjoy the magnificent view from this symbol of the power of an empire than lasted over 5,000 years.

When you come back down from the wall, you will have the opportunity to visit a jade sculpture workshop before having lunch in a tradtional Chinese restaurant.

After your meal, you will return to Beijing by bus to visit the Summer Palace. This palace, constructed in 1750 by Emperor Qianlong of the Qing Dynasty, is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its beautiful gardens.

  • le fait d'avoir une guide et un chauffeur rien que pour moi, c'était sympa. pour la visite de la grande muraille, je suis montée toute seule, donc aucune explication sur le comment et le pourquoi ....! la manufacture de jade, c'est 5 min d'explications, et après on nous envoie direct à la boutique .... moyen comme stratagème ! le déjeuné était très copieux, mais pareil, j'étais toute seule. pour la visite du palais d'été, là, ma guide est venue avec moi, et j'ai donc eu une visite guidée : là c'était intéressant ! pour la dégustation de thé, encore une fois, c'est certes pour nous faire découvrir, mais surtout pour nous faire acheter ! pour le retour, le chauffeur m'a déposée là où je le souhaitais, donc c'était très gentil de sa part. en bref, ma guide était gentille, parlait bien anglais, mais ne m'a au final guidée qu'au palais d'été ...!

  • Tutto bene, anche se la visita del palazzo d'Estate risulta troppo veloce ed è penalizzata dalle visite del laboratorio della giada e della sala the. Particolarmente fastidiosa è l'insistenza del personala di questa ultima sala nel volerti vendere le loro merci, che sono anche particolarmente molto care.
