1st time gng on the Great Wall, thou I've been on one in Beijing before (via cable car) this was the only time I truly finish the whole walk. It's not an easy walk let alone building it... I have to say I really admired the ppl building it esp the widows that built one part of it. Got to... More

Every time we have been to China we go to a different section of the wall. This time at Huangyaguan we did 10kms. The best way is to take a car up to the distant gate and walk "down". Having said that it is up and down all the way to the main entrance (which notably can be hard to... More

I have to confess from the beginning: I still do not know if I took the right turn. The direction I will describe does not bring to the place where the shuttle driver can drop you off.There are 2 directions to go: you go through the entrance, walk few hundred meters and reach the fork. I went to the left.... More

Much quieter than the traditional access points on the Great Wall, reached from Beijing. 2 hours in a taxi from Tianjin got us there. The last part of the road was pretty interesting, although it looked like they were doing some major improvements to it, so you may not have the bumpy roller coaster ride we had for the last...

A great place to see the Great Wall from Tianjin. My friends and I booked a cab for the whole day (8am to 6pm). It took about 1.5hrs from Tianjin City. Restaurants located near the entrance are overpriced. It is better to pack some food and drinks from hotel or buy some before leaving the city. You may need 2-3hrs... More

This is my favourite rebuilt section of the Great Wall. Unlike most of the sections closer to Beijing, both times we have been it has not been busy. We were able to hike the wall at an enjoyable pace, and take pictures without trying to accommodate crowds of people.

We visited the Great Wall with a touring party from Australia. If you think you have an idea of it without visiting , think again! Nothing prepares you for the size, engineering feat, numbers of visitors, etc. etc. For a start the steepness in certain areas, the different sized steps of every step, the narrowness, the lack of pavement type...

Great place, very gorgeous views, quite tourist trap shops at the base. Be prepared to climb, the steps are at least 1 foot in height. Expect a workout. Very busy,

I liked this visit to the Great Wall more than that in Ba Da Ling, close to Beijing. Less crowded, better kept. Some parts are very steep, with high steps. On the way to/from Tianjin one can visit a small but interesting natural resort.

Stunning attraction. This part of the wall has been very well restored and is a must see for all tourists visiting the area. Great views and good exercise. Also a great place to take a breath of clean fresh air.
