Day tours from Beijing to the Great Wall in Badaling and to Ming tombs

April 18th, 2006

Tour to Great Wall at Badaling, a convenient place to explore the Great Wall, because not too far from Beijing and comfortable enough for just a day trip. The tour continues exploring the Ming Tombs, the Sacred Way, and traditional silk factory near Beijing.
