The wall is fine but the way chinese present it is awful. Cheap cheesy la la land. Chinese have a long way to go to appreciate themselves.

This part of the Great Wall is incredible. I arrived at 8:00 when the ticket office opened. I purchased tickets for the cable car and when I arrived at the top I was the only person on the wall (no tourists, no locals). The views are breathe taking. Go here and experience a once in a lifetime view.

This is the best place to see the Great Wall. A little over an hour outside Beijing you take a cable care to the Wall and then get a fantastic view along a large length of the Wall as it snakes across the mountains. Go early to avoid crowns and you end up with spectacular pictures of this amazing phenomenon. Be warned however, if going when I went (February) wrap up warm. It was -15C when I was there.

This section of the Great Wall is by far the easiest to negotiate if you are not a seasoned hiker. A taxi or bus ride from beijing will take you there, or your hotel can arrange a tourist bus.We hired an English-speaking driver Vincent and his email is wokanxin@yahoo.com.cn. You can buy a ticket for a chairlift that transports you to the top of the wall, and walk from there in either direction. A fun sit-down sled can be taken back down the mountain; it is a little wheeled board that has a hand brake and runs in a stainless steel chute back and forth.
In general, the views are breathtaking- very wild and secluded country, and the wall seems to go on forever into th edistance. You do have to negotiate a bunch of vendor stalls to get to the entrance, but this is true at any tourist attraction. And there was an American style Subway sandwich chain restaurant at the bottom if you want American style food. COnsistent , but with odd additions like blueberry flavored chips. I'd go to a noodle shop , personally.

First of all I went to the Great Wall to see it. I knew in Dec. it would be cold , but not 19o below and my camera wouldn't even open. It is a great thing to see when it's warm. I also seen a lot of great things around Beijing, but to cold to acualy enjoy things.
One thing I want to say is on't ever go to China alone as I did.
I set myself up like a turkey waiting to be shot.
I was walking around Taliman squar, and 4 guys cme up to talk with me and spoke perfect English, and said the worked for Microsoft, and was in Beijing on a business. They aske me to have lunch with them, and gave me the bill, and told me with no uncertain turms I was paying the bill. I thought $ 150.00 I got the bill from AMX and it was $ 1500.00. So watch out for friendly business men.
After I left these guys I went to get a cab it was to cold to be out any longer, and getting late. It cost me 20 yen to get there, and the cabs wanted 50 yen to get back. I asked a rickshaw driver to take me for 30 and after a while he said he would.When we got to my hotel he wanted more because he said he was a cripple. I gave him the 30 and started to get out, and he locked the door, and hit me in the head. I turned around in my seat, and faut with him a min, and he took off with the door locked I actualy thought I was going to die or at the least wish I was if he got me to his buddies. I pulled out a 100 yen and he stopped and unlocked the door, and let me out. So beware when traveling alone.
