See the Great Wall when in Beijing. This location is popular with tourists and locals and can get crowded but you can;t go to China and not see the Wall.

It's a great place. I went their by bus. The view was stunning of course. But it was so crowded. I suggest to go there with the first tour bus and take some food with you.

Very crowded side of the wall. You wont enjoy it. Better to visit mutianyu side of great wall. Its equally beautiful on all sides. but you will avoid the crowd at Mutianyu.
