China Things to Do: 765 reviews and 1,190 photos


Great Wall is a must see for anyone visiting China. Most people see the wall driving from Beijing to Badaling. if you want it to seem a little bit more exotic do not go to the left side of the wall at Badaling but rather go to the right. It is a lot harder to climb and the steps are really steep and some reach above your knees but there was no one there except for the people I came with. It makes for a wonderful walk. No one was there except for us while on the other side was basically a line of people climbing the wall. A TRULY UNIQUE EXPERIENCE.
