Total length of walls more than 6 thousand kilometers. Unfortunately, most of the walls had been destroyed by time and now represents only a pile of rubble. In the area of Beijing to the delight of the ubiquitous tour renovated four piece for several kilometers. The closest to Beijing – Badaling section. He is only 50 km from the city, laid back highway and train, but with the Tiananmen Square organized buses that depart there almost every 15 minutes. Badaling is the most visited site. With the width of the wall about 6 feet there is so crowded that not unfold . Badaling more convenient in that it contains the tombs of the emperors alongside the Ming Dynasty, where you can drop in visiting two attractions at a time. Since tombs we are not interested and pushing among the crowds of people we do not like to Badaling, we did not go.
