Viewing your website, I know Qinhuangdao is a beautiful city worth travelling. Can you arrange me one day Qinhuangdao sightseeing from Beijing? Ivan

Hi, Ivan, one day is not enough to travel Qinhuangdao from Beijing. Because Qinhuangdao is 300Km away from Beijing. Besides, there are so much historic attractions to see such as Shanhaiguan Great Wall, Laolongtou-the east most of the Great Wall and the hot summer resort-Beidaihe. You need 2 days at least to travel there. Anyway, I have sent an elaborately itinerary to you. Hope it works. Any questions, just let me know.
