Most of the comments here are for the main tourist spot area of the Great Wall. My wife has been there once and here to Yellow Flower seven times now. This area is the real authentic Great Wall.

It is a very crowded place now and the pollution on the day we visited was terrible. I would recommend a less popular place to avoid the crowds.

A must see if you are in China! We walked all the way up to the top . At the top we were greeted by some fun-loving Chinese docents for a photo-shoot with fun Chinese props. We then took the go carts down the mountain which was a total blast. Well worth the trip.

It was in my wish-list before. Yesterday, I came here and impressed by the grandeur of the great wall. It's worth to climbing and enjoy the whole sightseeing that you can see from here.

If staying in Beijing a visit to the wall is a must, you can walk, ride in a golf buggy type car or cycle solo or tandem the view from up there is good.

If you're catching a bus, it's hard to get to unless you can speak and read Chinese, but it's worth the trek.

This is one Mans' great structures of the world. Created in a barbaric times when the people's of the world knew no boundaries and roamed like sheep. Communications with each other was at it's infancy. Be prepared for the unexpected this is no ordinary wall that divides one section from another. This is an achievement of Man against nature and...
