BEIJING, July 7 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- Travel through China often consists of a large number of big cities which means more crowds and less natural beauty. The China Guide ( ), a trend-focused travel company, is offering overnight excursions just outside of Beijing for those travelers who need a break from the city pace.

"The one thing in China that always brings nature to mind is the Great Wall. We have many guests asking about staying near the Wall to get some quiet relaxation and see the rural sights of the country," says Judy Huang, Travel Manager of The China Guide. "We knew this would be a great time to introduce an overnight getaway with accommodation at the Great Wall. Our guests can rejuvenate in a quiet atmosphere with a monumental backdrop."

The China Guide's overnight itinerary takes guests to the Badaling Great Wall, just outside of the city. Tucked alongside the Wall is a newly renovated traditional courtyard-style guest house. The guest house is lushly decorated and rooms have modern amenities. The dining is excellent and guests can relax at any time in the main courtyard with tea or fresh coffee.

Available activities include wild Wall hiking (for the more adventurous nature lovers), a visit to Dragon Gorge as well as a stroll through an ancient village of caves. Extra relaxation can be found at the spa a short distance away which is open from the afternoon until late at night where you can find hot spring baths.

The China Guide's Badaling Overnight Tour includes transportation to and from Beijing city, accommodation and cable car tickets to get up to the Wall. Guest's can arrange this tour individually or include it as part of a longer China itinerary.
