Upon your arrival in Beijing, you will be transferred from the hotel in urban Beijing to Badaling Airport. Before the helicopter tour, you will go through the necessary security check under the guidance of expert staff. The airport lounge is also open for you to prepare for boarding, relaxing, and taking photos. Then, a 15-minutes flying experience on the helicopter will present you the landscape of the Badaling Great Wall and its beyond. On the helicopter, you may also see Guanting Reservoir and Kangxi Grassland. They are blue and green drawing boards waiting for you to draw pictures with your unlimited imagination.
After the Badaling helicopter tour, you will be driven to the Badaling Great Wall. As the most representative section of the Great Wall, the Badaling Great Wall has welcomed countless visitors from China and the rest of the world every year. Spanning 2.3 miles, it served as an important military defense system in ancient China. Now, it is open to the public. When you look at the map of this Great Wall at its entrance you may find that it can be divided into north and south parts, each of them has several watch towers and other places of interests. The Beacon Tower, for example, was used to scout the movements of enemies who were mostly the nomads from the north in ancient times. When the guards on the tower detected the nomads, they would set fire and burn smoke immediately to send information to the nearby watch towers. That was a good way to prepare in advance to defend the invaders. At present, these towers have already fulfilled their historical mission and thus become popular tourist destinations. You may take photos of these towers on the Badaling Great Wall and post them with your phone.
After that, you will head back to the hotel in urban Beijing. This is the end of the 1-day tour in the Badaling Great Wall.
