The time is tight and there is no necessary to visit both in one day. Choose either one is available since there is no large difference between them.

Hi, which section of the Great Wall would you like to visit?
If you want to go to Badaling Great Wall, then you can take shuttle bus line 18 first to Shuiguan Xincun first and then transfer to the bus line 68 to Beihaozhuang. Walk west about 20m to take Bus Line 879 to the Great Wall. The taxi from the airport to there is around CNY260.

If you prefer to the Mutianyu Great Wall, you can take the Bus Line 3 to the Shunyi Maliandian and then transfer to Bus Line 916 to Huairou North Avenue. After that, walk north about 20m to take Bus Line H23 to Xinying, and then you will get there. The taxi fare is around CNY200.

You can walk southwest around 350 meters to get to Beijing Railway Station. Then take metro line 2 to Jishuitan Station, Exit C. Walk west along North 2nd Ring Road around 750 meters to find Deshengmen Bus Station. After arriving, take bus no.877 and get off at a bus stop close to the pulley car lower station, which is about 10 minutes' walk to the entrance.

Will stay over night at Bestay Hotel at10 Fahua Nan Li, Dongcheng. What is the best way to go to BJ and come back to the cruise port in Tianjin the next day at night? How and what should we visit in BJ? We would like to visit Great Wall, Tiananmen Square, Forbidden City, Temple of Heaven, and other places of interest. Please advise us how we should visit all those places in two days by public transportations. I can speak Mandarin. Thanks for help!

You may take a taxi to Tianjin Railway Station from Tianjin Cruise Port for about CNY 170 to 180. Next, take a bullet train to BJ South Railway Station (about 40 minutes). Then, take a taxi to your hotel for about CNY 25.

There are many Great Wall sections, and Badaling Great Wall is highly recommended owing to the easy access and magnificent appearance. Public transport is quite convenient at the city. You can easily get from one place to another. After sightseeing, you can follow the same route back to Tianjin Port.

You may arrange the itinerary this way:
Day 1: Badaling Great Wall- Ming Tombs- Shichahai
Day 2: Temple of Heaven- Tiananmen Square- Forbidden City

To Badaling Great Wall, take bus line 877 from Deshengmen Station. Then, take bus line 879 to Dagongmen Station, and you can see the Ming Tombs. Afterwards, take bus line 872 from Dagongmen Station to Deshengmen Station, and switch to bus line 5 to Drum Tower, where you can walk to Shichahai.

Walk westwards for about 500 yards from your hotel to the Temple of Heaven. After visiting, you may take bus line 2 or 120 from the west gate of Temple of Heaven to Tiananmen East Station. After that, walk north to the Forbidden City.

Great Job! Thank you, Danny! Will you please give me another Itinerary for Day 1 from BJ South Railway Station without stopping at the Hotel first since we have only a backpack? I also will need direction to go to the hotel at the end of the 1st day. If time allows, we would also like to visit Summer Place, Olympic Park, Hutong or any other site. Can we buy a Two-Day Pass to travel in BJ? Any suggestions for the public transportation card in BJ for two days?
Answered by Danny | Dec. 27, 2016 19:04

Okay, I see. You may plan Day 1 in this way: Badaling Great Wall- Summer Palace- Shichahai. If time permits, you can go to see Olympic Park on Day 2 after visiting Forbidden City.
Upon arrival at BJ South Railway Station, you may take metro line 4 to Xuanwumen Station, and change to metro line 2 to Jishuitan Station, Exit B2. Walk east for about 700 yards to Deshengmen Station, and take bus line 877 to Badaling.
After that, still take bus 877 back to Deshengmen, and change to sightseeing bus line 3 to Beigongmen Station. Then, you can see the grand imperial palace. After that, take sightseeing bus line 3 to Gulou and turn west into Shichahai, which is famous for housing crisscrossing hutongs. After visiting, take a taxi to your hotel for CNY 25 or 30.
I am sorry that there is no two-day pass. You are advised to buy Transportation Smart Card, which can be applied on buses, metros, etc. Pay CNY 20 as the deposit, and add some value to it. :)
Answered by Susan Kuo from USA | Dec. 29, 2016 08:01

Thank you very much for such a detailed instruction, Danny. It is going to help us a lot. Now, for two people do we buy 2 Smart Cards or one to share? According to your itinerary, how much value per person should we add to the card/s? More questions:
We are taking a Celebrity cruise from Shanghai on 3/25. We will arrive at PVG around 11:00am of 3/23 and stayed at SH Celadon Theme Hotel at 153 Chao Zhou Road, Huangpu, SH 200010 for 2 nights.
1. How do we go to the Hotel from the airport and from the Hotel to the Cruise Terminal?
2. Will you please give me the itinerary for the 1st day (Half day), 2nd day (full day) and 3rd day (morning)? You did a wonderful job on BJ, I am sure you can do SH also. Thanks a lot! Susan
Answered by Danny | Dec. 29, 2016 18:56

You need to buy two cards. Each of you may add around CNY 30 to the card.

To the hotel: take metro line 2 from PVG to People's Square Station, and change to metro line 8 to Laoximen Station, Exit 3. Walk southwest for about 350 yards to the hotel.

To the Cruise Terminal: take metro line 8 from Laoximen to Hongkou Football Stadium. Next, change to metro line 3 to Baoyang Road, Exit 3. Then, take bus line Baoshan 3 from Tongji Road, Baoyang Road Station to Wusongkou Road, Baoyang Road Station. Upon arrival, you can see the cruise terminal.

You may arrange the itinerary this way:
Day 1: Yuyuan Garden- City God Temple- Xintiandi
Day 2: Disneyland- the Bund (Oriental Pearl Tower, Jinmao Tower, Huangpu River Cruise).
Day 3: SH Museum
