If you have limited time in Beijing, skip the Ming tombs and visit the Eastern Qing tombs instead. It is about 2.5 hours drive from Beijing. Spend the whole day here and remember to bring packed food if you intend to spend the whole day....More
These tombs are in Hebei, much further away as compared to the Ming Tombs, but if you rent a car for the day, you can spend your time here and at the amazing Huanghuasheng section of the Great Wall. If you are interested in spending...More
