Went in Mid Appril 2015 and the weather was mid 20C. The day we went had "cloudy" weather. Going to the Great Wall is a must do when in China. However I was warned that the Great Wall near Beijing was very crowded. With a ride from uncle, We found very little people there. You can have the whole wall... More

Went to Huangyaguan from Tianjin. The trip there was an adventure but went surprisingly smoothly (even negotiating for the cab driver to wait at the wall). Definitely worth a visit!

We were lucky to go on a sunny and beautiful day. We climb the wall, 2 hours that nice. View, scenery and also during the week you can enjoy the wall only for you because nobody go. Week end is a bit more people. We made some good picture and had a lot of fun. Recommend it.

Going to the Great Wall is a must do when in China. However the section in Beijing can be very crowded. Taking a train from Tianjin for an hour and renting a mini van taxi gets you to the Huangya Pass (or 黄崖关长城). When we went, there was only a few people. It was like having the whole Great Wall...

Stunning part of the Great Wall. Luckily we had a sunny day but wrap up warm in March (snow was still on some steps!) Watch out if you are invited to light an incense stick by a monk- you'll get 'dinged' for several dollars worth!

I loved visiting this section of the wall. I've been to seven separate sections, I think. This is not the favorite of those (because it's hard to name a favorite when I like each section for distinct reasons), but it's well worth a go. To say this is in Tianjin may mislead people a bit. It's in Tianjin Municipality. It's... More

Don't even consider going to another section of the Great Wall when visiting Beijing or Tianjin. This is it! Beautiful, well-preserved, restaurants, public toilets, possibility for renting horses. A small market to buy local produce. Take a round starting out at the upper end and arriving to the main entrance - around 70-80 minutes. Remember proper shoes especially when raining.

Everyone has heard of this majestic structure! Why not go and see it? Most of the original wall is in partial ruin, but here and there, the wall has been reconstructed with accuracy and enthusiasm. These are the sections you will be allowed to visit. There is a special shock to the system as you observe this wall following the... More
