A trip to the Eastern Qing tombs from Beijing is probably a full day trip in a private car. The tombs, themselves, are really fascinating. The Spirit Way is longer than the Ming one in Beijing, the Tang one for Empress Wu, and the First Ming Emperor's in Nanjing. We enjoyed the movie showing the robbing of Empress Cixi's tomb,... More

This is not frequented by many westerners; in fact, we were one of a handful on the day we visited. The scenery is interesting on the way there. I recommend go one way there, and then back a different way, in a loop past a large lake near Miyan. The drive is well worth it. It is about 80 miles... More

After visiting the tombs in Vietnam and being told they were modelled on the Chinese Emperor tombs I was very much looking forward to seeing these. What impressed me the most was the immense scale of the site. A shuttle bus actually drives you from the ticket office to the tombs but in doing so it passes the sacred way... More

As you will find indicated in the other reviews, this is not an easy site to get to, On the weekends, there are apparently direct buses from Beijing and Tianjin; on weekdays, you can take buses to Zunhua and take a small bus to Qing Dong Ling (aka the Eastern Qing Tombs). A car would give you more time at... More

Only 3 hours about drive from Beijing, I was surprise to see this quite and peaceful area. You can visit most of the tomb from the main emperor including Cixi, the powerful lady. You can go down and enter in the tomb where it's all so fresh and suiting water from everywhere. Of course this area is covered by trees... More

I went to the Qing tombs with my family in summer 2013 and were lucky enough to be driven there by family in China. While it's quite faraway from the rest of the Beijing sites, it's worth a day's trip to Zunhua to see these tombs. After seeing the site in Beijing I was quite disappointed with the fake and...

My wife and I went to visit her parents nearby and this was a great opportunity to see the tombs. the tombs are scattered all across the region and some of the less "important" members of the dynasty can be found in random fields in zunhua. the main site is accessible by car or small busses that go across the...

I don't know why after living in Beijing for a couple years we'd never made the trek to see these. It's definitely a long day trip, or you could stay somewhere along the way at the towns on the eastern side of Beijing (traffic is awful getting in and out of the city). The tombs feel so different than all... More

The trip to the tombs was well-worthed the ride from Beijing and expenses. It could be made as a day trip from Beijing, or a sight enroute to Chengde. The space and peacefulness will hit you once you reach the tombs. It was a very refreshing trip after the crowdedness in Beijing. There were not many visitors to the tombs.... More
