"How to get to Simatai. Getting..." Public bus Tip by darthmilmo

Public bus, Beijing: 43 reviews and 38 photos


How to get to Simatai. Getting to the Great Wall of china at Simatai on a backpacker's budget is no easy task. It involves getting on a minibus from Beijing to Miyun. At Miyun, you can hire a miandi driver to take you the rest of the way. The picture taken by a local above is of the miandi driver and me. On a little side note, Miandis are no longer allowed in Beijing as part of a pollution reducing effort by the city in preparation of the 2008 Olympics (Congratulations Beijing!).
