The Great Wall was built across six districts or counties in Beijing, such as Pinggu, Miyun, Huairou, Yanqing, Changping and Mentougou from east to west. Forming a half hoop shape, it protected the safety of this city. It measures about 1,258 li (391 miles). The repaired part is only 58 li (18 miles), comprising about 5% of the full length. The famous sections of Beijing Great Wall include Badaling, Mutianyu, Jinshanling, Simatai and Jiankou.

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.
