We had an absolutely perfect day with our tour guide - Rogin Luo - who took us for a hike along The Great Wall! Didn't know what to expect and were thrilled to have him as our guide. Very imformative, knowledgable and fun! We go to experience a part of The Great Wall that was unrestored and see all its natural beauty. Got a long history lesson along the way!

After the hike, we all went to lunch at a small place at the bottom of the hill. Located in a house, we ate lunch in the proprietors bedroom! What a hoot! Rogin is the Best of the Best! This tour company delivered for us and we are extremely grateful.

Beijing War Memory One Day Trip
World War Two is a broad term including scores of conflicts with different starting and finishing dates. To most Chinese, World War Two started with the Marco Polo Bridge incident on July 7th,1937 that marked the beginning of official Chinese resistance, the start of Sino-Japanese War, an important component of World War Two.

The visit to the Marco Polo Bridge 16 km in the outside of Beijing adds some dimension to locate your information on the war. The Tunnel Warfare site in Jiaozhanghu in Shunyi district 40 km in northeast of Beijing helps you see the war from another perspective.

Tour Description
Pick up from your hotel by our English speaking tour guide around 9:00:am. Take a private vehicle for the Tunnel Warfare Site at Jiaozhuanghu Village in Shunyi District, some 40 km northeast of the downtown Beijing. The Tunnel Warfare Memorial Hall is divided into two sections: the exhibition hall and the original tunnel site.

Tunnel Warfare Memorial Hall

In the exhibition hall, there are lots of pictures and artifacts on show depicting that period. Behind the hall is the real tunnel for your exploration and experience. The renovated tunnel open to the public is about 800 meters long. Inside the tunnel, you can find individual blindages, headquarters, meeting rooms, numerous hidden gun holes, warehouses etc. The holes and entrances usually are out of your expectation, hidden under a straw mat inside a house, down a well, the kangs, kitchen ranges, hogpens, donkey slots, wardrobes etc. This allowed flexible movement or exit. During the Anti-Japanese war starting from the year 1937, the Chinese Communist forces or local peasant guerrilla forces used successfully the tunnel war tactics against the Japanese (and later Kuomingtang during Chinese Liberation War from 1945 to 1949 ).

The real tunnel

After lunch, then head to the Marco Polo Bridge ( Lugou Qiao - Marco Polo Bridge ). It is located in the ancient town - Wanping. It is one of earliest stone arch bridges, about 16 km in the outside of Beijing. On July 7th, 1937, the bridge entered China's history when the Japanese Kwantung Army began its war to conquer China. On that day Japanese troops illegally took up a railway junction near Wanping and the fighting started. It is later known as the "Marco Polo Bridge Incident". This is regarded by many historians to be the date when the war between China and Japan started.

Wanping Ancient Town

During the 8 years, Japan occupied most of China and killed millions of Chinese. The war ended with the end of WWII. If time permitted, you will be arranged to visit the Chinese Anti-Japanese War Memorial Hall next to the bridge. The Anti-Japanese Aggression War Memorial Hall has an area of 23,780 square meters with its total construction acreage of 10,190 square meters. The two east and west halls exhibit numerous historic cultural relics, treasure documents and photos of the whole national resistance against the Japanese aggression army under the guideline of China Communist Party's "National United Front to Anti-Japanese Aggression" principle.

The Anti-Japanese Aggression War Memorial Hall

By the way, the the Marco Polo Bridge itself is worth seeing. The bridge is 260 meters long and has 250 marble bars supporting 485 carved stone lions. it was first built in 1192, one of the few cultural relics left from Liao Dynasty. In 1751, Emperor Qianlong of the Qing dynasty (1644-1911) personally wrote the poetic titles for the 8 views in Beijing, including the "Lugou Xiaoyue" tablet carved with his words which still stands by the bridge. The bridge has been there for 800 years.
