Two famous locations for cultural experiences around Beijing are the Simatai area of the Great Wall and Gubei Water Town. You'll be visiting both these locations, exploring their landscapes, and learning about their past and significance to Chinese culture. Starting in Gubei Water Town, you'll see the famous Mandarin Duck Lake Reservoir that holds the water flowing through the town itself. Admire the northern architectural style of its carefully preserved old buildings, standing in elegance and full of street shows, before proceeding to the next destination close by. Against Gubei Water Town's lake is the Simatai area of the iconic Great Wall of China. This UNESCO World Heritage site has been partially restored, allowing you to climb up upon the battlements to take in the marvelous views of the jagged mountains and their greenery. The view changes throughout the seasons, casting new colors with every visit. Your tour ends back in downtown Beijing at the drop off.
