One of the Seven Wonders of the World, any visit to China would be incomplete without at least a trip to the Great Wall of China. Snaking along steep hills and mountain passes for up to 6,259 km, the Great Wall of China is one of mankind’s most awe-inspiring architectural feats.
Conquer the less visited sections of the wall, away from tourist crowds at Jinshanling or Mutianyu. Enjoy the opportunity to hike the completely unrestored area of the wall at Gubeikou and experience the raw beauty of this architectural wonder.
Brickyard Retreat at Mutianyu Great Wall
Mutianyu, Great Wall, China
Sitting approximately 45 minutes from Beijing's city centre, in the small village of Beigou, Brickyard is an extraordinary boutique retreat with just 34 rooms and private houses. It was once a factory producing glazed tiles and is full of character.
Jinshanling, Great Wall, China
Located at the foot of Jingshanling Great Wall, Dhawa Jinshanling is ideal base to explore the world's longest man-made structure without the relative crowd typical of Great Wall areas near Beijing.
