Is it a reasonable expectation to visit the Great Wall whilst spending time on a stop-over in Beijing? I assume that Badaling is the closest point to Beijing to view the wall. Can anyone advise me regarding this. How much time within one day would I need to allocat to a brief trip to the Great Wall?

Name:Re: Badaling Great Wall Tour

Usually its a day trip or much of the day. Badaling takes about 1.5 to 2 hours to get there and we spent about 2 hours on the wall. This was in a private car not a public bus.

I’d like to visit the Great Wall in China the next month. Could you please tell me which part of it is worth of visiting?

Thank you for asking. I recommend the Badaling Great Wall to you. There you can not only see the greatness of the Great Wall, but you can also witness the greenness of the pine trees in the Badaling Great Wall forest park.
