Badaling wall of china??

by hayleyjade1997

Hey, does anyone know how long it takes to walk the badaling wall of china??? Also, how many kilometres is it there and back? (the start to the finish then back again) Thanx, it would be helpful if i got my answer asap

by johnmperry

Don't quite understand. The Wall used to be more than 7000 kilometres long. At Badaling it stretches out of sight in both directions. And it's not flat there, it's very steep, with lots of steps. When I was there, it took at least half an hour to cover about 200m.

I think it's about 90km from BJ

The stretch of the Great Wall open to the public at Badaling is about five kms long, but as the previous poster says, there are a lot of steps up and down. If you wanted to walk the entire stretch and back again, I would allow at least four hours - more if you wish to stop and take photos. It is the most visited part of the Great Wall, so you may be delayed having to negotiate the crowds.

Re: Badaling wall of china??

by jumpingnorman

It really depends on how far you want to go up Badaling and if there is someone waiting for you at the start of the Wall. The Great wall is very very long and I think there's only a few people who have walked the whole expanse...but Badaling is a fairly localized part of the wall and I think I did go up and then down through a few towers in about an hour and a half. It is pretty tiring, specially as you have to pass all those people who are huffing along the way. I could have gone even further up through the Wall and God knows where it will end, but my private tour guide and car were waiting for me and I just gave them a time on how long to wait for me. Besides, I had to see many more sites around Beijing. Have fun in China and enjoy!

Travel Tips for Beijing

Mao in the chinese universities...

by Lemonita

I remember that the first day I arrived in Beijing, I was a little bit shocked to see this huge Mao statue just accross from our university. I later found out that the building accross was also a university.

When I started to become familiar with my district, it seems that it is not uncommon to find such statues in university...

Watch Towers of the Forbidden City

by nepalgoods

The Imperial Palace is full of stories and fairy tales.

About the watch towers I have heard the following story:

When the walls of the Forbidden City were buiilt, they first had no towers. But then the emperor dreamed, that the walls had the most beautiful watch towers, one at each corner. So he gave the order to build those towers.

Two architects build very beautiful towers. But everytime they finished their work, the towers did not look like the ones, the emperor dreamed of. The emeperor was not satified with the managers and killed them and their craftsmen.

The third manager, he asked, had prepared himself. He knew, that, when he failed, he would be killed, too. He was very worried, when one day he saw an old man with a grasshopper in a cage. The cage was beautifully woven of thin sorghum stalks with eight sides and eight more at every corner. The roof was divided into three storeys: the first had upturned eaves on its four sides, and each of the four corners also had four small upturned eaves; the second was very much like the first, except that on its four small upturned eaves were four triangular ridgepoles; like the second, the third hat four triangular ridgepoles, but on the ridgepoles were four more triangular ridgepoles, and on each of them stood four level ridgepoles.

That cage looked exactly like the emperor had discribed his dream. The manager and his craftsmen built the watchtowers according to the cage. The emperor was satisfied and the craftsmen stayed alive.

On the photos you can see one of these watch towers to the right. The big building is one of the magazins of the palace.

The Sacred Way of Ming

by GUYON

It was the holly way used by the emperors to go to the temples to venerate the gods.
The "ten thousands years lord" was allowed to use the way.
See on the travelogue the marvellous things of this place.

Wangfujing

by mojo1980 about Wangfujing Street

A popular shopping strip, similar to Orchard Road. Well, the stuff here is higher than elsewhere due to higher rent.

In the alleys nearby, you may find Chinese gifts in a street-like bazaar.

Cheap transportation

by kathynchuck20

We found the taxi's to be a really convenient way to get around Beijing. The fare was very cheap and the cabs are metered so you just pay the fare on the meter. Most cab drivers are not going to speak English so you you should have someone at your hotel write down where you want to go in Chinese and take the hotel's business card with you which should have the name and address on the back in Chinese. When you are ready to come back, just pick up a cab on the street and give them the business card. That's enough to get you back to the hotel. We did this on a couple of occasions and it worked for us.
