Great Wall of China Day Tour - Beijing Layover


Great Wall of China Day Tour - Beijing Layover

Bucket List Ticked off! My great wall of china experience was just so great that I want to share it with you guys. Enjoy!

Best of Beijing & Great Wall of China Tour

A journey through Beijing to explore its rich history, fascinating architecture, ancient buildings, and the world-famous Great Wall of China.
The Great Wall of China (Chinese: 萬里長城; pinyin: Wànlǐ Chángchéng) is the collective name of a series of fortification systems generally built across the historical northern borders of China to protect and consolidate territories of Chinese states and empires against various nomadic groups of the steppe and their polities. Several walls were being built from as early as the 7th century BC by ancient Chinese states; selective stretches were later joined together by Qin Shi Huang (220–206 BC), the first Emperor of China. Little of the Qin wall remains. Later on, many successive dynasties have built and maintained multiple stretches of border walls. The most well-known sections of the wall were built by the Ming dynasty (1368–1644).
Apart from defense, other purposes of the Great Wall have included border controls, allowing the imposition of duties on goods transported along the Silk Road, regulation or encouragement of trade and the control of immigration and emigration. Furthermore, the defensive characteristics of the Great Wall were enhanced by the construction of watch towers, troop barracks, garrison stations, signaling capabilities through the means of smoke or fire, and the fact that the path of the Great Wall also served as a transportation corridor.
The frontier walls built by different dynasties have multiple courses. Collectively, they stretch from Liaodong in the east to Lop Lake in the west, from the present-day Sino–Russian border in the north to Taohe River in the south; along an arc that roughly delineates the edge of Mongolian steppe. A comprehensive archaeological survey, using advanced technologies, has concluded that the walls built by the Ming dynasty measure 8,850 km (5,500 mi).[4] This is made up of 6,259 km (3,889 mi) sections of actual wall, 359 km (223 mi) of trenches and 2,232 km (1,387 mi) of natural defensive barriers such as hills and rivers. Another archaeological survey found that the entire wall with all of its branches measures out to be 21,196 km (13,171 mi). Today, the defensive system of the Great Wall is generally recognized as one of the most impressive architectural feats in history.[6]
Discovering the historic Tiananmen Square, wandering around the Forbidden City, and enjoying majestic views atop the Great Wall's Badaling section.
Beijing, China’s sprawling capital, has history stretching back 3 millennia. Yet it’s known as much for modern architecture as its ancient sites such as the grand Forbidden City complex, the imperial palace during the Ming and Qing dynasties. Nearby, the massive Tiananmen Square pedestrian plaza is the site of Mao Zedong’s mausoleum and the National Museum of China, displaying a vast collection of cultural relics.

Hi friends, recently I’ve taken an interest in videos and hope to start vlogging! I’ve always been a big fan of taking photos just so I could always look back and remember specific moments. But I’ve always been extremely jealous of those who have the vision to film, edit, and produce beautiful footage that captures raw emotion in those very moments.

This is my very first time making a video and the quality isn’t the greatest, as I didn’t know what I was doing, but I hope you enjoy it! I had a lot of fun putting this together! So here’s my attempt in documenting a moment that was special to me in December of 2016! (Be sure to view this in HD)

After putting this off for about a good year and a half haha… I finally sat myself down and finished this video of my layover tour in Beijing with my friends Terry, Kainoa, and Bryent. I can’t believe we lucked out on the weather and got to see one of the wonders of the world! It was definitely a breathtaking experience and an amazing piece of history! For more information on our layover tour or if you want to see Beyonce at the Great Wall, see the links below!

If any of you videographers have any tips or suggestions for someone new like me, please let me know in the comments below! I documented this video on my GoPro Hero 5 and used iMovie to put it all together. I’ve been wanting to learn how to make videos for quite some time now and am open to any feedback! Thank you!

[HD] Beijing Layover Tour + Great Wall Of China 2013

Beijing, China 2013

During my trip to the Philippines I had a 8 hour layover in Beijing China. Months before i made some research about the possibilty to have a short visit and to climb the Great Wall of China.
I contacted a Beijingers well-known driver and expert on layover tours names Joe! He was really funny and kind as well.
Got into Beijing without a Visa needed, for my 8 hour lay over!
It took us about 45 minutes to reach Mutianyu (Great Wall famous section) I walked around and climbed the Wall for 3 hours and took the toboggan going back down from the wall.
I could have spent more days instead of a short layover here in Beijing, coz i think Beijing or China in general has a lot of tourist attractions to be visited, thus im pretty sure 1 stopover tour is not enough.
Here's a summary of my short tour in Beijing!

Let's talk about long layovers!

In my opinion (from years of travel experience), I can tell you that long layovers are THE BEST way to break up long travel days and have the chance to explore a new city for cheap. I've had great experiences on long layovers in cities such as Istanbul, Doha, Dubai, Tokyo, Frankfurt, Addis Ababa, Nairobi and tons more!

Did you know that at most major cities in China, you can get a FREE 72 hour transit visa if you have proof of an onwards flight? It's a great way to save the time & stress of applying for a Chinese visa.

This video documents my recent 18 hour layover in Beijing, as well as gives travel tips if you do the same.

In which city is your most memorable experience on a long layover?
