In 2011 Summer Tours, China & Hong Kong Tours on 2011/06/07 at 9:46 am

Qingdao is regarded as one of the most beautiful, clean  and relaxing places in China. Literally translated as  ‘Green Island’, the city possesses a long and beautiful shoreline where summer brides and happy grooms are photographed, making the place picturesque and romantic. Do you love drinking beer and enjoy going to festival? The Tsingtao Brewing Company, originally founded by four German settlers in 1903, remains and keeps a thriving drinking culture in Qingdao.

This summer, Concorde has prepared a weekend get-away trip in August (13-15 Aug) so you can drink as much Tsingtao Beer as you like. For your information, other brands are also available in the beer festival. 😉 Besides, there will be good chances to experience Chinese culture, watch entertainment shows and taste a wide variety of tasty food.

We guarantee a nice 4-star hotel stay, entry to the beer festival, a good tour to the local brewery and a free beer mug. Not only that, when you’re sober, we’ll take you to the most famous tourist spots and get you a dumpling making crash course. Not enough? How about we’ll also send you to the famous beach for you to chill and get a tan before heading home?

Can You Sleep on The Great Wall in China?

In 2011 Summer Tours, China & Hong Kong Tours on 2011/04/29 at 4:04 pm

YES! You CAN!

Concorde Travel arranges a two nights tour that allows you to sleep on the Great Wall. No need to wonder no more what to do with a few days of holiday, realize your dream this summer! Here’s the itinerary:

“Clearly, the most memorable part of my multi-country adventure was sleeping for two nights on the Great Wall. Your people were outstanding. Transport, accommodation, meals and your guide all exceeded expectations. In my opinion, it’s one of the best value for money excursions you could partake in China.” 

The Great Wall

Day 1    Beijing/Great Wall

 

 

Depart from your hotel in Beijing for the Ming Tombs, final resting place of 13 Emporers. Two stops are made to give you a complete experience.Walk the Spirit Way and descend into the underground Ding Tomb.

After a Chinese style lunch arrive in Jinshanling village at the base of the Great Wall. Go for a sunset view hike up on the Great Wall.

Dinner is in Jinshanling village at the base of the wall. A wide assortment of fresh Chinese dishes. If it’s not enough tell your guide and more we be ordered! Dinner also includes free flow of soft drinks, bottled water, local beer and tea.

After dinner your guide will take you back up to the watchtower on the Great Wall where you will spend the night. This is a 15 minute walk. Flashlights are supplied. If you have other bags they will be locked in the vehicle for the night. Take what you need for the walk on the Wall in the morning because you will you will not go back down to Jinshanling before walking on the wall.

As the Great Wall is a World Heritage Site there is no development allowed. Accommodation is similar to camping. Sleeping mats, sleeping bags, flashlights, food and drinks are all provided. You may sleep inside the watchtower or under the stars on the Wall. There is no electricity, running water or toilets. There are public toilets in Jinshanling, otherwise be prepared to commune with nature.

Optionally you may stay in the courtyard style hotel (extra charge applies). Private bathrooms are available.

Day 2    Great Wall/Beijing 

Wake up and enjoy breakfast on the Great Wall as the sun rises over your panoramic view. The morning light can produce amazing photographs. Breakfast is western, including German muesli, fruit, milk and other drinks. No cooking is allowed on the wall so sorry, no hot breakfast! At this time of day there are usually no other tourists on the wall. You have it all to yourself.

After breakfast embark on a 3 to 5 hour walk with fantastic scenery along restored and un-restored sections of the Wall, accompanied by your guide. The hike is of medium difficulty, with ups and downs and some loose rocks. Two bottles of water are provided for you to carry with you as well as some snacks. If you prefer not to hike you may choose to ride the bus. Any bags left on the bus overnight will remain on the bus.

After a Chinese style lunch, including drinks, drive back to Beijing. Stop at the Olympic Swim Center (Water Cube) and the Stadium (Bird’s Nest) so you can catch a glimpse of these architectural wonders and take photographs.

Drop off at your hotel will be later in the afternoon.

This itinerary can be combined with other touring arrangements in Beijing or elsewhere in China.
