Wild Great Wall of China Day Tour
Today you will depart on an exciting and much-anticipated guided day trip to the Great Wall of China. Different sections of the wall were built over time, the earliest dating from 200 BC by the first Emperor of China, Qin Shihuang. Stretching from Lop Lake in the west to Shanhaiguan in the east, several different walls were built in the 7th century during the Ming Dynasty as border defence against invasions of neighbouring nomadic groups. The wall has also served as a border control along the Silk Road for regulation of goods and taxes and as a transportation corridor. Enjoy your day at the Great Wall of China with your guide to learn about the historical events that occurred here and to admire the incredible natural mountain landscapes surrounding you.

Enjoy more free time this afternoon to visit the Summer Palace, Olympic Park and make a trip to the Silk Market for last minute souvenir shopping! Tonight you will enjoy a fantastic Kung Fu Show before your trip ends!
