China Things to Do: 765 reviews and 1,190 photos
No visit to China is complete without a trip to the Great Wall. It was certainly one of the most inspiring moments of my life to be standing on a part of it. The construction began more than 2,000 years ago on this wall that meanders more than 6,000 kms (3,728 miles) across the country.
If you want to join busloads of, head for the area of the wall at Badaling, about 60 kms (43 miles) northwest of Beijing. Because this is where most visitors see the Great Wall, Badaling is very crowded. The 'remote' part of the wall at Mutianyu (about 90 kms/56 miles northeast of Beijing) isn't so remote any longer but is still less crowded than Badaling.
Directions: 60km north of Beijing
