The secret to travelling at a reasonable price, is being flexible with booking dates and being able to book a deal as soon as you find it. I was lucky enough to snatch a deal to Beijing from DC for less than $500. Typically, flights from DC to China can be four times as high. Finding a deal this good was ideal for me as visiting the Great Wall of China was one of my bucket list items.
I decided to spend a total of 6 days in China, and with flight time being approximately 18 hours I truly had 5 full days to explore Beijing. I also found an amazing tour package which had 3 full days of tours.
Below are a list of places visited while on this tour:
