  • This is the most visited section, more commercial, more renovated and more crowded than the entire Great Wall, but it is also the only one that you can reach by public transport, which if you are alone or if it is reduced to the last, might be the only option left. Having said that, I was actually ready to rip off, but it really didn't like that. There are certainly the most scenic sections of the wall and more authentic, but the view, especially by certain towers doesn't disappoint: a stone dragon that winds through the mountains. Going by train, you can see, before arriving at Badaling, other sections of the wall, more rugged and wild, surely also be reachable but somehow. Good shoes, hat and water: it's still a place where you walk in the mountains, with slopes also very high.

  • Tried 2 days go by train at the station in Badaline, came on the first day to 9 am, the train must have been about 11 hanging plakan-no ticket and closest to 1:00 pm. We decided that later came and moved the next day. The next day we came to 7-30 in the morning, the picture is repeated again-ticket office closed and hanging too ad. A security guard standing nearby said that at the bottom, you can buy train tickets on the Passport (a passport we had), but below us so nobody tickets sold, shrugged his shoulders and everything sent to the top. Next to the ad that no tickets written numbers of buses that go to Badaling. We finally went on the bus on the money more expensive like at 15 RMB (don't remember exactly). We were brought to the point where at the entrance bears and climb on plastic trolleys. Trolleys on one upside-down cost 100 Yuan for 1 person. The stenee was very crowded, but they did not disturb us. The Chinese were even with babies and very adult Chinese
