It´s fantastic to be in the Great Wall, one of the best places in the world! I can´t describe the feelings!
I've visited this section of the wall quite a few times--I love it. I always take visiting friends and family members to this one and they love it too. Beijing sections are incredibly touristy and crowded, as are the ones in Shanhaiguan/Qinhuangdao. I've never seen crowds here (save for the marathon in May). There are portions of this wall that...

Seeing really is believing and you can't go to China without seeing this. It is absolutely breathtaking and it really will make you marvel at the engineering. How they did it is totally beyond me. When we visited the sun was out and we could see for miles . It was like being on top of the world, a view... More
I been many times in Badalin Great wall in Beijing but every time it seems more turistic to me, you can even find Starbucks.After visiting the Great wall of Tianjin i think that if you can and have how to go its really worth it. It is more real and less turistic, since its not very near from Beijing.
This section of the Great Wall features an adjacent walled settlement which has been well preserved. The Great Wall itself comprises three opportunities for walking. To the left, there is an upward climb along a broad wall that is much like seen in photos. To the right, there is a bridged section across a small river. Beyond that, a steep... More
Last time I went to huangyaguan great wall was in autumn. And it is really amazing. The sights there in summer and in autumn is totally different. and I think that it is more beautiful in autumn. the leaves turn red. and it is also a good time to take photography there.
It was under construction in April when I visited, and the entrance charge is higher than the other sections of Great Wall I walked, about 70 yuan. And you can't enter the Wall twice even it is the same day. It is a good day walking tour from Taiping Village to the other terminal at Baguacheng. I went the other... More
I was here with my mom and younger sister in November 2012 as part of our short tour of Asia. We were supposed to visit the place as an excursion from the cruise ship but the weather was bad so they had to cancel the tours. We were still allowed to go out on our own and so although there... More
The Great Wall is a great place to visit, but not in Feb or March. Go in the late spring or early summer for a much more enjoyable trip. If you do go during these months, you better bundle up real good, because the wind there is unforgiving.
I will agree with most of the other reviews, though I will have to warn you new comers. the "city/town" is the trap!! stay away from them!! They will charge you 10 times the amount that the regular price is. Keep a Chinese guide with you at all times as this is a tourist trap! Yes, it is a beautiful... More
