I wanted to go to Jinshanling Great Wall also, but I didn't want to take a tour and I wanted to see if I could get there myself. I'll tell you what I did: From Dongzhimen (东直门) bus station I took express (快)bus 980 to 密云县. At the last stop, the bus station, I got out. Immediately there was a man trying ... Details

Had been told by my friends that did not take the tour bus, for there were a few of them and one might need to wait for a long time. So I took the bus 916 from Dongzhimen (the station was not far from the ... Details

Before you visit China and the Great Wall (Badaling), it is important that you try to get in rather reasonable shape before you get there as it would be a shame to go all that way and not be able to make it to the "top" of the Wall because you are too out-of-shape.

Actually, this was the second time I put the plan to visit the Great Wall into action. The first time, I took part in a one day Great Wall tour but only got cheated.

I went to Simatai Great Wall last summer holiday with one of my Chinese classmates. At first, we didn't know how difficult the climbing would be and had a leisurely meal at the foot of the mountain. It turned out that we got a warning from the staff: "Hurry up, guys. We are here to do ... Details

Hi, I have just finished my Beijing trip with my family. Overall the trip was fun except for our experience in Badaling Great Wall trip. We took the public bus 919 to the Badaling. However, instead of taking the public transport to Ming Tomb from Badaling, we opted to take one of those illegal car ... Details

Speaking of China, people remember the Great Wall; speaking of the Great Wall, people jump to Badaling. I came to Beijing early this year as an international student and went to Badaling Great Wall.
