Great Wall of China
Beijing is probably one of the oldest cultures on Earth, with over 2000 years of history. It has been the Chinese capital for over 850 years, since the Yuan Dynasty, through to the Ming Dynasty and up to the Qing Dynasty. The Great Wall was built to protect the capital city from the invaders coming from the north.
The Great Wall of China is one of the 7 wonders of the World and is one of the rare monuments on Earth that is said to be visible from the moon. For this tour, we will visit Juyongguan section of the Great Wall that dates back to 220 B.C. It was originally built under Qin Shihuang, the first emperor of China, when few sections of earlier fortifications were joined together to form a united defense system against invasions from the north. The construction of the great wall, however, continued up to and beyond the Ming dynasty (1368–1644), when the Great Wall became the world's largest military structure.
The second spot to visit on our itinerary, after lunch, is the Ming Tombs that were built for the 13 emperors of the Ming Dynasty. The Ming tombs structure is an illustration of the precepts of traditional Chinese fengshui theory. They feature rich decoration of stone statues and carvings and tiles with dragon motifs, illustrating the development of the funerary architecture of the Ming Dynasty. They have served as burial edifices for illustrious personages and as the theatre for major events that have marked the history of China.
