Badaling Great Wall of China

八达岭

Badaling is about 80 km from Beijing and is the most convenient place to view the Great Wall.

Admittedly Badaling is very touristy (the most visited section of the Great Wall, in fact), but it's easy to ignore that fact when you are confronted with one of the world's seven wonders.

Family friendly, Badaling has a cable car that will save you the walk to the top of the wall. There is a fee for the ride, but it's a great time saver, and the spectacular views as you rise will inspire photographers of all skill levels.
