If you do nothing else in China this is a must whether you climb only one tower or many, you cannot fail to marvel at this attraction and wonder how it was built. It is not often you visit a wonder of the world but this was awesome - No 1 in China !!

We claimed the north wall. It was very busy even during off season. The problem I found was the lack of ways to return without having to retrieved our steps. We ended having to do a round trip back and forth from the wall. I enjoyed the exercise but was extremely difficult since I had to wear an orthopedic shoe... More

It's great if you are adventurous and traveling with a Chinese speaker. The area we went to was way out in the countryside with no public transport that takes you directly there. Bus to black taxi. You need a taxi back to the town to get the bus back to the city, so a Chinese speaker with the drivers number... More

I visited the Great Wall using a company called Beijing Airport Transportation Online Service operated by a great guy named Tony. He was so accommodating and set everything up for me the day before I arrived. I was able to leave the airport, visit the wall, take many pics, and get back to the airport in time for my flight....

We have to travel up a windy rough path to get up to the Great Wall, then that portion of the Great Wall definitely very difficult to walk unless you are used to and good at tracking.

beautiful beautiful portion of the great wall including a lake, green scenery, locals, and unfurnished part of the great wall. What more could you ask for? My husband and I had a 6 hour layover in the morning and booked a single driver tour for this early morning trip. This wall has a sign for locals only and not tourist.... More

What can you say? It's the Great Wall. We chose this section over the others because it was less crowded. We did find the inevitable vendors at the base but the hike to the top was amazing. Bring good shoes for the hike and aspirin for the sore muscles the next day.

I booked the tour directly on my hotel reception, so i dont remember the name of the tour company, sorry. This part of the wall is very calm, you have the possibility to avoid the crowd and you can have some parts of the wall just to you. The views are amazing. At the end you have the possibility to...

Actually partook in a cycling trip to get here, which in itself was awesome. This is the real deal part of the wall with no tourists, hawkers, vendors and the like. Just the magnificence of the wall, warts and all. Some sections were very steep and slick with moss, so not suitable for young families. Several places, we had to... More
