Day 1

Beijing

Welcome to Beijing! Arrival transfer from Beijing airport to your hotel.
Overnight: Beijing

Day 2

Optional Beijing Sightseeing

Spend the day at leisure, independently exploring the capital. Alternatively embark on an optional Beijing sightseeing tour which includes lunch. The Beijing sightseeing tour takes you to Badaling, to walk (and almost a climb at times) a section of the Great Wall. Following a ridge of barren hills through northern China, the Great Wall stretches as far as the eye can see - at least 6,700 km. Back in Beijing, take a stroll across historical Tiananmen Square. A vision in grandeur with its imperial yellow roofs and vermilion walls, the Forbidden City is a city within a city, once forbidden to all except those on imperial business until 1911, when the last emperor Puyi was removed from power. Enjoy a guided tour through what was once the innermost sanctum of the city.
Overnight: Beijing  |  Breakfast

Day 3

Beijing - Moscow

Moscow

Moscow - Late this afternoon, the train reaches Moscow, where your adventure concludes.
