Badaling Great Wall Tour - So Crowded

I know Beijing is the capital city of China and enjoys very rich tourism resources. This time my wife and I could spend our holiday in Beijing and we both very excited about that. The advanced facilities in Beijing International Airport left us a good impression of the city.

Overlooking of Badaling Great Wall

We join the 2 day coach tour of Beijing. Our tour guide, Bruce, was very knowledgeable and spoke English well. We did not have much time in Beijing, so this tour package was great for us. The only thing we wish we could have done was to climb up and walk down from the Great Wall. In the description, it lists the cable car as an option, but our guide told us we did not have enough time to walk up and back down the Great Wall. So everyone in the tour had to fork out an additional 80 RMB for a round trip cable car ticket. We were not expecting that. I understand that there are time constraints on the tours, but we had plenty of time to at least be given the option to take the cable car up and walk back down. Fortunately by the cable car to the top, we had a whole view of the Great Wall which was so magnificent. It looks just like the dragon stretch the mountains.

After the Great Wall we went to the Ming Tomb – the largest clusters of imperial cemeteries in China. On the way back to our hotel, we had an outside look at the Bird Nest and Water Cube. I really like there and took a lot of photos. And then returned and finished dropping off everyone at the hotels at 6:00 pm.

Truly speaking, the tour is very good. However do not have enough time to climb the Great Wall is a pity. The tour started at 8:00 am. I suggested that whether it could started earlier so that we would got enough time to climb up and down the Great Wall.
