We had a bit of the trouble to get to the Great Wall, firstly we were taken to other place although we booked Muntianu. So for second attempt we decided to take public transport. I have to say It was very difficult and we still needed a private driver to take us to the wall. It was difficult to negotiate... More

My wife and I did a day trip from Beijing arranged by Travel China Guide (who arranged our 3 week trip to China). The Jinshanling section is several hours from Beijing but I think worth to avoid the buses of people at the sections closer to Beijing. Our guide, Joseph Zuoshanshan, added a lot to our day as he is... More

You'll arrive and see lots of construction going on. These will soon become restaurants, stores, hotels and more. We went on a Saturday morning and it was quite empty. We felt like we had the wall to ourselves, with the exception of a few tourists and the local farmers/tour guides. The ruins are just that, and if you're a photographer,... More

Whilst I find the crowds of Chinese tourists hugely entertaining (I am Chinese and a tourist myself!) I did not relish rubbing shoulders with such crowds on the spectacular Wall. It is well worth the longer drive out of town to get to this quieter stretch. Try not to get annoyed with locals who tag alongside and act as your... More

We loved the Jinshanling section of the Great Wall! The cable car was perfect for getting to the wall for our group which included a 77 year old! This section was not crowded and the locals were great and very helpful. We hired a local guide who helped us navigate perfectly. A wonderful day trip by car approx. 2 1/2... More

If you are visiting Beijing just for a couple of days I believe the Great Wall is something you should really take the trouble to see. We had seen it at Badaling many years ago but now wanted to see a less crowded part of the Wall. It was a great day trip - it took us just a little... More

Wonderful part of the Great Wall. 2h30 from Beijing by bus. It's really worth going a little bit far to see this beautiful and exciting place.

Our group of 5, including a 14-year-old, thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Jinshanling Great Wall. We booked a driver through Simon Service, and Mr Mick Miao certainly helped to make the day a successful one. There are very few people at this section of the Great Wall. The scenery is beautiful and we all appreciated the fact that we could... More

The great wall is one of the most impressive things i have ever seen. The best thing at jinshanling ist that there are not a lot of tourists. We went there in July 2014 it is high season but there were not many tourists and we got wonderful pictures alone on the wall. Take the public bus 980 to Miyun.... More

been to different ones. This is a big far away from Beijing center. But there are less people and less spoiled views. It is on the way to Chengde or imperial summer mountain resort.
