DAY 01Arrive Beijing. Transfer* from Beijing Central Station to your Hotel.
If you are arriving into Beijing Central Station at the end of your trans-siberian journey our driver will meet you at the end of the platform and will be holding a meeting-board with your name on. Transfer from the station directly to the Red Wall Hotel. The facilities available at this hotel include a Chinese restaurant, coffee shop, and a beauty salon. The extremely convenient central location positions you to get the most of your own exploration of the legendary Imperial city, where the rich traditions of Buddhism, Daoism, and Confucianism meet with the opulence of the Chinese Emperors
and the vibrant realism of contemporary China. (Please note your onward train tickets will be delivered to the hotel during your stay.)
DAY 02 Free day in Beijing. For day trip options please click here.
If you haven’t pre-booked one of our city excursions, today is your own to explore. During your stay in Beijing you’ll certainly want to visit both the Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square. These are within walking distance of the Red Wall Hotel, and adjacent to each other, so this couldn’t be more convenient
DAY 03Check-out of Hotel. Own taxi to station for lunch time departure to Hong Kong. Overnight on board.
You’ll need to check out of your room by 12 noon today but the hotel offers a Left Luggage service for a small fee. Your time is free until your train departs. Hotel Reception can pre-order you a taxi – it’s wise to allow one hour to get through Beijing’s traffic and a second hour to complete security (metal detectors are now in force and there can be queues to use them) and find your train and platform. Own transfer to the station where you will board the Hong Kong bound train
