Description

Backed by the most beautiful and adventurous Simatai Great Wall, Gubei Water Town is a rarely–seen tourist resort that holds the landscape of water and mountain together in suburb Beijing area. The night scene of this place is amazingly eye-catching. Simatai Great Wall is the only section of Great Wall that retains the original appearance from Ming dynasty, which is called “primitive Great Wall” by UNESCO. Take this tour to appreciate the primordial historical relic, and relax yourself in the recreational water town.

Get picked up at 1:00 pm by the guide and driver from your Beijing downtown hotel. After about 2.5 hours on the road, arrive at Gubei —one of China’s most famous water towns. It is composed of picturesque canals, bridges, courtyard houses, shops, and hotels, set mountains and takes Simatai section of the Great Wall as the background. Gubei becomes another spotlight for visitors in Beijing. Follow your guide to walk around the quaint architecture, enjoy the sunset if weather permits. You can also try some local snacks there as dinner on your own (feel free to ask your guide for recommendation).
Duly refreshed at about 6:00 pm, ride the cable car up to Simatai Great Wall, the only part of the UNESCO-listed structure that is open to visitors at night, illuminated brightly from dusk onward. Admire the lit-up ramparts tracing the steep spine of the mountains from your cable car, and then start to meander along the battlements.
Simatai Great Wall stretch extends for 3.3 miles and is studded with 35 beacon towers. As you walk, witness the architectural features of the ramparts, which shows the prototype of the building styles that used across the entire wall. Meantime, absorb the spectacular views down over the lights of Gubei. Finally, descend by cable car and take shuttle bus back to the parking lot.
At 8:00 pm, your trip ends and we transfer you back to your downtown hotel.
