Two tour package options
If you want to stay closer to the race venue and get a taste of China outside the great metropolis, have a look at the 6-day option. It's the more relaxed tour option as your Jizhou base is closer to the Great Wall. If you want to spend all nights in Beijing, have a look at the 7-day itinerary. This 7-day tour package offers you the definitive Beijing experience! While the drive to the race venue is a bit longer, you will have ample time to explore Beijing in your pace and visit some of the incredible city's classic sights.
Extension tours and excursions
On the 7 day tour visit classic Beijing highlights such as the Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square, the Temple of Heaven and sample exquisite local cuisines in the many markets and street stalls of old Beijing. You can top-off your Beijing stay with our optional excursions that take you to the Summer Palace, the former summer residence of the Imperial family, and Beijing Zoo to see the giant panda at the city zoo. Or how about visiting the impressive Ming Tombs or watching a classical Chinese Acrobatics show? Whatever your interests, the excursions offer a wide range of attractions that give visitors a great taste of Beijing.
Choice of hotels
For the standard 6-day package, participants have a choice of accommodation: standard, comfort, or deluxe hotels. For the 7-day package, there is a choice between two comfort hotels (based on location) and a deluxe hotel. In general, guests should expect the standard hotels to be clean and basic, with no added amenities. The comfort hotels will have limited amenities, while the deluxe hotels are more similar to name-brand Western hotels.
