Average time to visit

With scorching summers, cold winters, temperate springs and pleasant autumns, Beijing and its surrounding area experiences four distinct seasons. During the summer months, the mercury can reach over 40°C, bringing monsoon rains and extreme humidity, despite being the peak season for travel. From November through to March, northern winds whip through the city, seeing temperatures tumble to as low as -20°C in January, the coldest month. Springtime is windy yet pleasant, although sandstorms from Mongolia sweep through at this time of year making outdoor sightseeing uncomfortable. The Fall months are the perfect time to travel, with fewer tourists and the most clement weather for exploring the city.

Located right in the heart of Gubei Water Town, the Gubei Zhiguang Hotel is a spacious modern resort featuring comprehensive wellness facilities including indoor and outdoor hot spring pools, spa and sauna.

Fresh and contemporary with wooden flooring, the 319 rooms of Gubei Zhiguang comes with modern amenities such as centralized air conditioning and cable television. Besides the many restaurant options in Gubei Water Town, the resort has a Western restaurant as well as a Chinese restaurant with an extensive menu of food from various regions.

The real draw of Gubei Water Town is its proximity to the stunningly preserved Simatai section of the Great Wall of China. Snaking across the undulating hills, this particular section of the wall can be quite perilous, with crumbling watch towers and steep arches punctuating the wall itself. There is a scenic cable car ride from the base of the wall up to one of the watch towers which is a spectacular experience after nightfall when the wall is illuminated.
