Morning Mubus Tour to the Mutianyu Great Wall

894 reviews
The Great Wall of China is an ancient fortification, more than 13,000 miles (21,000 kilometers) in length—it’s also China’s top attraction. Parts of the wall are in poor condition or else crowded with visitors. But, on this guided tour, you get to visit the quieter, under-the-radar Mutianyu section, which has also undergone a complete restoration.

If you love history you have to visit the bridge. It's just a bridge so don't expect much more than that! Over the centuries its been repaired, parts replaced or fixed, so don't expect an intact 800 year old bridge. it is 20RMB to get into the area of the bridge, there are shops to buy food and drinks, washrooms, little tourist places to buy things. You need about 30 minutes to wander up and down the bridge taking photos. There are some signs in English. Across from the Bridge is the West gate of Wanping Town. The Museum against Japanese oppression is accessible in there. Getting to the bridge is not too easy. Take line 14 to Dawayao station, the bridge is about 2 1/2 km from the station. I would recommend a Didi/taxi from there, 13RMB cost.

We caught the subway then walked to this site. The bridge was amazing with each lion being different and the ancient ruts from wagons down the middle. There were not many people there and we walked through an area of closed shops and restaurants that appeared to be preparing for bigger crowds. We visited the museum of Chinese resistance to Japanese aggression which had very interesting war relics and news reports about the war. Interesting propaganda if you like history. Enough english signs to keep us informed. We did this on our own in a morning. 2-3 miles walking from the subway station round trip if you don't get lost while walking. My husband had an app on his phone that worked to map our walking routes in China.

There are numerous carved lions on top of each balustrade and the fun is to try to count how many there are. This bridge is historical because of an incident it signaled the beginning of the war between China and Japan. If you have time you can see this pretty carved bridge.

700 year old bridge totally restored and well maintained. Longest stone bridge in this style in China. Location where Japanese war with China began. Very neat site to visit and an easy walk.
