Your Beijing group tour starts when Sublime China's english-speaking travel guide and driver picks you up from your hotel on departure time between 7:00 am and 8:00 am. From here we then drive to the Ming Tombs (Dingling)--the best-preserved Chinese imperial tombs with 500 years history. Dingling is the joint burial tomb of the 13th Ming Emperor Zhu Yiyun (1563-1620) and his two empresses, Empress Xiaoduan and Empress Xiaojing. The Underground Palace Halls, a labyrinth palace building, was the first royal tomb excavated in accordance with their plan in China. It is one of the three largest tombs of the Ming Tombs. Your Beijing group tour prances through and explores its wonder for 2 hours.
It's worth noting that the layout of the ground construction of Ding Mausoleum is also square in the front and round in the back, reflecting the famous idea that "heaven is round and the earth is square" a traditional philosophy that rings in the hearts and minds of many Chinese.
