I got the 877 bus from 德胜门 (De sheng men) to Badaling. The bus was cheap (about ¥10) and you were able to use the Beijing metro card for payment (you could use cash from memory). The bus leaves when full - I had to wait 15 minutes prior to departing. There are two ways to get up the wall... More

I came on 17/03/24 which was a rare snowy day. All the trees and plants were covered in snow which made the sight precious and beautiful. It was hard to capture on camera since the snow was too big and the whole place was chock-a-block with people packed like sardines. This attraction is unfit for elders since the cable car... More

We left the hotel in Beijing at 7am and arrived at 830am. We spent 2 and a half hours there and by 11am it was unbelievably busy. There are 2 directions to choose and both have different levels of difficulty to get to one of the towers. Luckily it's less smoggy here and worth the trip. There's not much need... More

Great Wall must be seen, your china trip is not complete if you don't go to the wall. Watch the photographers, don't buy the photo, it's a rip off, same with Ming warrior do not take photo with them, they'll start bothering you for donations to them.

How does one even start a review of the Great Wall? Needless to say, the wall is breathtaking and one of the most impressive things you'll ever see in your life. And that's just the few miles of its path you see from Badaling. The facilities here are excellent and have been upgraded since I last visited in 2012. We... More

We went early to avoid the crowds. Our guide suggested the difficult side (i.e. the left side vs right). Less people as well as there is a handrail so is actually easier. Section 4 to 5 is the hardest. Once at 5, easier to reach 6 and 7. This is such an amazing site. We were fortunate that the air... More

Went during the winter season, which means less crowd but cold especially when the wind blows. It wasn't icy cold as I went when it was nearing the end of winter which was kinda great in terms of the weather. Getting There Take the train to Badaling, walk to the base of the Wall and climb up. Can be quite... More
