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.

I found Qianmen street to be one of the most interesting places that I visited in all my time in China. The different shops were all really interesting, but the architecture was the best part. There was a lot of people, but nothing unusual for China. The food there is very good and traditional, with the highlight being the kebabs that are served in many different shops. There are shops for clothes and other objects that you can bargain for, something people love to do.

This is our 2nd trip to the天安门 area, barely 2-days ago. Cuz the premise is super-big and earlier trip was to the Garden & the Palace. It was a Saturday morning and throng with local tour groups!. Hardly can move easily. We have arrived via Line 2 Qianmen Station, and undergone the security checks . We started with this magnificent “Front Gate” that guards the remaining 8 more in a North-South axis. 正阳门; Zhengyangmen remains an important geographical marker of the city, along city's central north-south axis passes through its main gate. This impressive and Gate is located at the south end of Tiananmen Square, holding access for the inner city of Beijing in the glorious past. Just behind it is the Arrow Tower A pity it is not open to public and well barricaded so we can only take photos and appreciate from a distance. Magnificent indeed with its towering height, and how it has witnessed all the major historical Events that span past 500 years! Just nearby is the Railway Museum so one can drop by too.. And not to miss mentioning is the Pedestrian Mall just opposite and Dashilan - It definitely looked tourist-designed/built... The houses and shops are in old style and colors BUT yet one knows it’s “new”. Still it is interesting to spend time browsing through the myriad food restaurants and souvenirs shops. Not to mention the first shop on the right is Starbucks!

I was hoping I could get up this Qianmen tower - which is practically like the south entrance to Tiananmen Square - but it is barricaded. So I could only view it from below and at a distance. Disappointed. But the streets south of Qianmen is buzzling with nice commerce and is very, very interesting. I think this is mostly missed by tourists - their loss. I would highly recommend the commerce streets south of Qianmen. And two streets parallel to this main street is where the real Hutongs are and where real Hutong living is. Must check out.

This was not on the recommended things to do in Beijing, yet I thoroughly enjoyed it. It's a recreation of old Peking. The central road is wide and the alleys are narrow, clean and have lots of shops. They date back to over hundred years but stock touristy kitschy stuff. Yet the vibe is lovely. Food was plentiful. The road is easily accessible by public transport. Spent a couple of hours just strolling around in the sun and enjoying the ambience.
