    Need to learn how to take bus, else cab.
    Allow time to move around as certain hours the public transport is packed.

    And not the standard touristy BaDaLing section. Mutianyu is much better. But if want to see the RAW Great wall, JianKou, Simatai are the place to go.

    Some Resources on walking the Great wall

    Went to Great Wall today, did the Juyongguan, there are 6 stages (guard posts) and I am the only one in the whole group (47 ppl) that went all the way to the last stage, fairly steep but the view was quite nice, because it was steep the great wall was rather narrow.

    Thanks for the info, I have been to the touristy part before. Just the other day, I saw a programme on tv that shows some backpackers venturing to the "untouched" parts of the great wall.

    To me, the ruins are even more beautiful than the restored parts

    There are plenty of nice places to go in beijing, like 798 area、簋街and 什刹海,and the best time to go is during the lunar new year, A new year celebration filled with color, energy, food and also a number of fascinating local events very interesting.
