"Visit the Great Wall at Si ma..." China Favorite Tip by cabbageking

China General: 367 reviews and 336 photos

Favorite thing: Visit the Great Wall at Si ma tai.
It's the farthest from Beijing, but it's worth it!

Fondest memory: The street markets. Real, fresh produce and food. <sigh>

Train rides are the best! I didn't get motion sick at all, and the views are spectacular. If you ride hard seat, soft seat, or hard sleeper (my favorite), you are usually in a car full of Chinese people. I was usually one of the only foreigners in that section. People who ride soft sleeper are sissies! <grin>
