A trip from Beijing to the most popular section of the Great Wall! Badaling National Forest Park is one of China's first ecological welfare forests certified by the FSC. Make sure to go during the autumn as visitors will be enchanted by the sights of the mountains and trees containing red leaves. Built during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) and first opened to tourists in 1957, the Great Wall at Badaling is the most popular tourist section of this landmark. Located reasonably close to Beijing and was recently restored, the Great Wall at Badaling sees thousands of visitors a day! More than 150 million people have visited Badaling since its restoration. Note: It takes around an hour on the bus to get there, so you can reasonably do this tour in half a day (depending on where in Beijing you start from and how long you plan to spend at the Wall).Show more
