Travelers coming to Beijing simply cannot miss the magnificent Great Wall. The wall truly lives up to its name and the Chinese saying, He who has never been to the Great Wall is not a true man. However, whats the best way to reach the Great Wall? For a low-priced reliable shuttle service to the Great Wall, visit the Beijing Hub of Tour Dispatch at the southwest corner of Tiananmen Square. The shuttle service will take you to one of the best section of the Great Wall, Mutianyu.

 

Located in the northeast Beijings Huairou District, Mutianyu Great Wall is one of the 16 new must-see Beijings scenic spots. This section starts at Juyong Pass from the west, and ends at Gubeikou to the east. You can see the battlements throughout the 2,250-meter-long section.

 

Due to Mutianyus location on the high mountains, tourists can catch a great view of the surrounding areas. You can see flowers blooming in the spring, streams flowing freely in the summer, red leaves falling in fall, and white snow covering the forest in the winter. As the most beautiful stretch of the Great Wall, Mutianyu attracts many famous foreign dignitaries, like Bill Clinton, during their China visit.

 

Travelers should reserve their seats at least one day in advance. Generally, the price for one person is RMB 260, which includes an air-conditioned shuttle, the admission fee, insurance, and a tour of Mutianyu by an English-speaking tour guide. The trip will start at 9:00 am every day.
