You can not come to Beijing and not visit the Great Wall of China: 不到长城非好汉, this phrase is a famous saying between Chinese people and it literally means “he who has never been to the Great Wall is not a true man”. Given the time to get there and back (an hour and a half/two hours depending on the section you decide to visit), I advise spending a whole day visiting the Great Wall. There are no direct connections from Beijing, but do not be discouraged, below I will show you how to reach the great wall independently. The alternative is to rely on organized tours but you will only visit the most touristic parts and you will have less time available to explore. Each section of the Great Wall has different characteristics. Choosing one or the other depends on a variety of factors: the budget, the time you have available, if you just want to admire the wall for views or if you want to walk along a stretch of the unrestored parts. There are easy sections and others are challenging, some even dangerous. The easiest way to get to the Great Wall is to book a private taxi that will drive you directly to the entrance of the site (hotels usually can provide this service).
