I have been to Great Wall several times. Huanghuacheng is definitely the best place to see the great wall when you don't have much time to travel very far away from the city, and when you want to avoid touristic sites of the wall. Hire a driver to take you this place and you may stop to several fruit gardens... More

Seeing all the nature, all the great wall, as a one of the 7 wonders of the world is amazing, being there and imaging how that happened, and the division of the families for protection, is a very good trip and experience.

Different from other Great Walls, this place has amazing view of Great Wall winding not only on top of peaks but also going through a beautiful lake. Plus, the local food is also delicious

Visited last May. We had already been to the main part of the wall at Mutianyu - this was an added bonus to go to a second part. It was stunning. Nowhere near as busy at the main part of the wall. It was a totally different landscape - the terrain was much more rugged and the wall was very... More

One of the wonders of the world, a place to see. It's a long walk so not recommend for old timers or for those who has medical conditions. You need to bring an umbrella or cap, wear a long sleeve, but not too thick, if you're planning to go on summer. Wear not too thick jacket if you're planning to... More

Not as crowded as other locations. Some Chinese students do not see many Westerners and they asked to take pictures of use. Visting the Great Wall is an unforgetable experience.

I've never expected to be standing at one of the wonders of the world, so far away from home, at the most populated country in the world and yet, this place is so peaceful. It'd a really hard climb (and I was surprised to see Chinese women with high heels and skirts). This was one of the highlights of my... More
