Beijing One Day Tours and Activities

Here's a list of Beijing One Day Tours and Activities, a good option if you are pressed for time and would like to cover as much ground as possible.

How to "do Beijing in one day"? crazy but doable! If that's all the time you have, specially if you're coming with the new stopover visa free 72-hour deal, planning ahead is the name of the game. Make arrangements in advance and if you really want to see it all, a private guide or one of the small group tours is probably your best bet. Here's a selection to get you started.

You can mix and match a couple of the tours and activities that interest you:

Beijing Tours: The Highlights

In this section we offer you a selection of One-Day or Half-Day Beijing City Tours covering some of the most special places which we consider "the must's" to any visit to Beijing.

They are specially useful for any first-timer and great to get your bearings. Places like the Forbidden City, the Temple of Heaven and the Summer Palace, they will give you great insights into the history and cultural heritage of China.

If you want some more flexibility i.e. you are traveling with kids, I highly recommend the Private Custom Tour option, where you can tailor the tour to your needs. If for example you find that the kids are getting a bit testy at the Forbidden City, you can speed up the visit and head out to ride some rickshaws. The tour price includes only the tour guide services, any entrance fees and transportation are on your account. It is a great way to see the city how the locals do, riding all manners of public transportation options, or taxis if you prefer.

The Great Wall is of course another must-do and worth dedicating an entire day to it. If you are short on time, however, there are several tours that combine both some of the Beijing highlights and the Great Wall in one day.

Great Wall tours are covered in more detail here.

And if all you have is one day, as crazy as it sounds, yes, you can do Beijing in one day. Here are some options to "see it all", but if traveling with small children, warning, these might cover way too much and way too fast.

Dining and Entertainment

What could be easier than having your entertainment options pre-booked before you arrive and just simply have someone pick you up at your hotel and taken around. There are many shows and dining tours available, from a Peking Duck feast, to Kung Fu or Acrobatics Shows, some combine dining and entertainment as well. Here are some of our best:
