Mutianyu is a section of the Great Wall that can be reached from Beijing in a day trip. The other two sections are Badaling(very touristy and commercialized) and Simatai(haven't visited this one). I enjoyed this trip because it wasn't over-crowded and the wall could be walked at my own pace. For this trip, I hired a driver who had been waiting in the parking lot of the Holiday Inn Lido for someone like me to happen along. Travelling at my own pace and keeping my own schedule was worth the $50 (400rmb) that I paid.
