    To visit the great wall of China is something I have long known that I must do. So exciting and so far. We stopped in Beijing for a weekend on the way to Southeast Asia.

I can not compare with other parts of the wall, but this was an amazing experience! We were virtually alone on the great wall, and just walking around on this edifice was a magical experience! China's cold in February, to have proper clothes, and the steps are up to half a meter tall. Much tougher climb than I thought, so have the proper footwear and parts of the railings if you are going to climb the great wall at Yanhecheng! Great experience and over an hour's drive from our hotel in central Beijing.
