Actually, it was in the year 2010, when I was an international student in Beijing. At that time, I really got tired of school life, so I asked several friends to go somewhere with me on a weekend. Since I really wanted to avoid the crowds and some of my friends had not been to the Great Wall, we made ... Details

To be honest, I prefer the natural scenery with clear water, clean air and green plants, rather than the man-made sites. Every time when I go to travel, I will go to the 'green places' first. But this time when I came to Beijing, my friend highly recommend the Great Wall of China and I accepted it. ... Details

But there was time left, and we took the advice of the driver to further tour to the Yanmenguan Pass. ... Details

I visited the section of The Great Wall eleven years ago while vacationing in Beijing. It was at least a two hour drive north of the city,but well worth it. what was disturbing to me was that once we reached the bottom of the immense hill below the wall, we were bombarded by merchants trying to sell ...
