Visit Forbidden City, one of the highlights of a Beijing tour for women

The Great Wall is a must-visit sight when visiting Beijing. Today we will visit the Great Wall at Simatai. Unlike the Badaling and Mutianyu sections of the Great Wall, Simatai section is more authentic, which can be said as the most unique one. It has not been renovated or restored since it was built 500 years ago. Date on which they were made and the code numbers of the armies that made them can still be seen on the bricks of Simatai Great Wall. There is a famous story happened on the Great Wall about a woman named Lady Meng Jiang that you may learn from your guide what it is about if you’re interested.

After leisure hiking tour on the Great Wall, we will go ahead to see Gubei Water Town which is located at the foot of Simatai Great Wall. The renovation of this 1000-year-old town has been beautiful done. If time permits, it is suggested to stay one night to enjoy the night view of the town.
