Visit Beijing WTown, a famous mountain village under the Simatai Great Wall - one of the sections of the Wall that has reserved the original appearance of Ming dynasty. As commented by The Times in the year of 2012, it is the No.1 site among the Top 25 Global Scenery that can’t be missed. During this special private tour, you will not only see the beauty of the Water Town but also get some hands on experience in making several iconic Chinese handicrafts with instructions. The most popular DIY handicrafts include Batik, Paper-Cut, Shadow Leather, as well as traditional lantern and kite making. Quality lunch with drinks will be served in Chinese restaurant at the famous Wangjinglou Boutique Hotel (inside WTown) where you will get the best view to enjoy the beauty of the Great Wall.

Meet your guide at 8 a.m. and drive for 2.5 hours to visit the Beijing WTown, popular known as the Gubei Water Town by locals. It is located at Simatai Village, Gubeikou Town, Miyun County, about 100 miles (155 kilometers) from downtown Beijing. The WTown integrates sightseeing, vacation, leisure, business, and exhibitions with creative culture, making it a comprehensive tourist destination. Based on the historical relics of the Simatai section of the Great Wall, the entire area is around 5.5-square miles (9 square kilometers), and it is divided into six themed areas and three scenic valleys. Apart from natural beauty, streets-capes of the Republic of China (1912-1949), an ancient village, and folk customs are also accessible for visitors.

Besides enjoying the natural beauty of the WTown, you will also learn to make several popular Chinese handicrafts. You can make your own souvenirs and take them home with you.

After enjoying your lunch at Wangjinglou Hotel, you will hike on the Great Wall at Simatai, considered one of the most beautiful sections of the Wall because of its steep summit. You can optionally take a cable car to save energy and spend more time on the actual Wall. There are total 35 beacon towers along this 3.3-mile (5.4 kilometer) section of the Wall. After the wonderful Great Wall hiking experience, you will take a romantic scenic boat ride to the Gate of WTown (30 minutes).

After tour is finished, you will be transferred back to your hotel in Beijing.
