I started very early to catch bus no.919 to Badaling Great Wall at Deshengmen Gate Station. There were so many 919 lines at the station which made me quite confused at first. I asked the ticket seller for the bus price. Finally I found the one which was sold at CNY 12, recommended by cyber-pals. The ... Details

During the national holiday, I decided to go hiking on Jinshanling Great Wall, partly out of curiosity and partly out of physical training. I took a regular bus from Dongzhimen to Miyun county. The transportation to Jinshanling was quite easy as there were a lot of private cars or minibuses claiming ... Details

I made my Simatai trip on August 15, 2009. The scene was still vivid in my memory. It was a fine day. Two friends and I got up very early. At about 9, we arrived at Dongzhimen long distance bus station to take bus no.980 to Miyun long distance bus station. There were two types of 980 buses. One was ... Details

The Great Wall was my big stop in Beijing. When I was hesitating whether to go to Badaling or Simatai, my friend offered me another choice – Mutianyu. Her reason was that Badaling was overcrowded and Simatai was too wild with inconvenient traffic. Mutianyu is not crowded with easier transportation ... Details

You are not a true man until you get to the Great Wall. In order to become a “true man”, I decided to visit Badaling during my first summer vacation in Beijing. Before my departure, I have consulted the experience from online friends who have been there before as I don’t want to be ... Details

I took a marvelous tour of the Jiankou section yesterday. Absolutely incredible. We hiked for about 6 hours, using a guide we found over the web. Ping knew the trails very well and was able to take us around the most treacherous spots (where people have recently died). We saw no other westerners the ... Details
