Simatai Great Wall, Beijing

(300+ reviews on the web)
State Park
See a section of China's most famous structure at Simatai Great Wall. Originally constructed in the 6th century, this section of the World Heritage-listed wall underwent reconstruction during the 14th century; today, it measures 5.4 km (3.3 mi) long, separated into eastern and western sections by a lake and water town. Climb the many beacon towers for extensive views of the vast landscape on either side of the wall. Designed to keep invaders out, this section is much more accessible these days, with a cable car making exploration of the wall particularly easy. Plan to see Simatai Great Wall and other attractions that appeal to you using our Beijing vacation trip planner.

  • 和八達嶺,黃花城,慕田峪等長城相比,司馬台長城特別的地方是它就在古北水鎮之內。而古北水鎮的住宿跟吃飯具有一定水平,所以逛完司馬台下來可以休息,也可以繼續遊古北水鎮。就不必像逛其他長城,還必須繼續拉車前往下個景點。至於景色,個人覺得還是慕田峪最優,司馬台稍微次之。司馬台長城缺點有二,一是沒圍牆,太危險。二是纜車費用與當地消費蠻高的。  more »
