In Beijing’s neighbouring Hebei Province, people can visit Jinshanling, Gubeikou, Shanhaiguan sections of Great Wall.

Although the earliest Great Wall was built before Emperor Qinshihuang unified China in 221BC, the wall appeared in Beijing area mostly constructed in Ming Dynasties whereas Beijing was the capital city and a key military fort in North China.

I have three friends who are going to a wedding in Bangkok. They have a six hour layover at Beijing International Airport. Is there anyway that they get a quick trip to the Wall and back in time for their flight? Any help would be greatly appreciated. They will arrive in Beijing on Wednesday, 11 Nov 15.
Respectfully, Fred Mudd

you show in a picture posted in your "Great wall tour" listing, a picture showing a group of young people what appears to be on top of a portion of the great wall; some of them in wheelchairs. There are 4 of us (all seniors), one in a wheelchair that will be in Beijing October 7th to 9th. We do want to see the great wall. Are wheelchairs allowed on the great wall? If so what section? Are they allowed to be carried up/down the lifts that go up to the top of the wall? Can a wheelchair be used to get from the parking to the lift? I can walk a little bit but do need a wheelchair to go very far.
thanks, Dave
