Day 2 April 20 Beijing – Great Wall and Ming Tombs
Our very smart guide Jack recommended that we start out early on our drive to the GREAT WALL. He is a wise man as it was a Sunday which meant an increase in the number of locals visiting this awesome sight. I had made a visit to the Great Wall in 1996. The infrastucture at the Badalang entrance has greatly improved.
50 kilometers (31 miles) northwest from Beijing City, at the foot of Tianshou Mountain,
is the Ming Tombs Scenic Area, where lie the mausoleums of thirteen emperors of the Ming Dynasty (1368 – 1644).
