Shuiguan Great Wall Tour

Shuiguan Great Wall tour is always used in low price bus tour to replace Badaling Great Wall, for foreign and local travelers.  So many local travelers will say "no" when they are suggested to Shuiguan Great Wall. Actually, being the east end of Badaling Great Wall, the scenery of Shuiguan Great Wall is very good after you walk past two beacon towers. There are many travelers with ' Great Wall bus tour ' near the ticket office. When you walk further, there is fewer and fewer travelers, and the scenery is better than the beginning part. The wall and scenery even can compare the scenery of the Badaling Great Wall at the west end.

We suggest travelers to take private Great Wall tour to Shuiguan and spend more than two hours on the Wall. Shuiguan Great Wall is a good choice if you love Great Wall, and you should know the wall you visit is "Shuiguan" not “Badaling”. We repeat this because part of travel agent in hotel lobby or near Tiananmen Square will use Shuiguan Great Wall to replace Badaling. Your trip will be spoiled when you know you are cheated, although the wall and scenery is not bad than Badaling Great Wall.  

Actually, many local Great Wall hikers prefer to visit Shuiguan Great Wall. After Walking through the crowd near 1st and 2nd beacon tower, you will enjoy the Great Wall of your own.  The flower in Spring and red leaves in Autumn made Shuiguan Great Wall more charming.
