... I loved every minute of walking on the wall today.
After we got time to walk on the wall for 2 1/2 hours, we went to a Great Wall Museum and were greeted by the designer of the museum and the director of the museum and renovations, because of Wei's connections. We got a tour of the museum, and learned a lot of history about the wall. Then we were treated to a delicious buffet lunch. As we were about to leave, Wei told us that the designer and director ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsJingtailong International Hotel Beijing
Good location reasonably close to centre. Breakfast was very good- plenty of choices. Room spacious & well equipped but not that quite (even on 6th floor)
