Beijing is the best destination to admire the Great Wall of China. Most famous Great Wall sections are located in its suburban areas, including the well-preserved Badaling and Mutianyu, the renovated Juyonguan, Jinshanling and Simatai, and wild Jiankou and Gubeikou. They are all not far from downtown Beijing, 1-2 hours’ driving away.

In Chinese history, Beijing was not only one of the ancient capitals, but also one of the most strategic cities in the north. To defend their territory, many rulers have actively ordered to build Great Wall here.

The Great Wall in Beijing totals 370 miles (600 kilometers). Those from Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), the last dynasty engaged in Great Wall construction, amount to 350 miles (550 kilometers). They are distributed in Pinggu, Miyun, Huairou, Yanqing, Changping, and Mentougou.

These sections are equipped with sound tourism facilities, even suitable for kids and seniors. Among them, Badaling is the best-preserved, and famous for its deep-rooted culture, magnificent sights and complete military facilities. You may find many of its pictures in magazines and guide books and printed on stamps. However, during peak travel time like National Day Holiday, Mutianyu may be a better destination as Badaling is always flocked with visitors. Juyongguan is one of three most famous passes along Great wall. There, one can also visit some ancient buildings like towers and temples.

How to Get to the Great Wall from Beijing

The most famous sections in Beijing, like Badaling, Mutianyu, Jinshanling, and Simatai, are located in the suburban areas, about 40 miles (64km) to 90 miles (145km) from the city center. You can get to the Great Wall from Beijing by public transport, private cars, or private tours.

Public transport is a nice choice for budget travellers. For example, you can take bus line 877 or S2 train to Badaling directly; bus 916 Express to Mutianyu with a transfer at Huairou. However, the bus stops are reported only in Chinese in most cases, which brings you some trouble in getting off at the right stations. Therefore, if you plan to go there by public transport, make full preparation and get familiar with the bus routes in advance.

For public transport to more sections, please see it on the specific pages.

Or, you can charter a private car and driver to the sites very easily. It makes your trip easier and saves a lot of time. Usually, it takes about 1 hour to reach Badaling and 1.5 hours to Mutianyu from downtown, and the car rental fee is around CNY 800-1,000 for a round-trip. But there is a problem in that the driver may not speak English; so set down the pick-up time and place beforehand.

Other than public transport and private cars, joining a private day tour is a perfect choice for first-time visitors and those who have limited time or worry about language barriers. It saves your time, makes your trip safer and easier, and helps you learn more about the wall with the help of the driver and tour guide.
