The Road to the Wall
Day six of our eight days in Beijing. We awake at 6 am to get ready for what we know will be the highlight of our trip – hiking the Great Wall of China!
Tip #1: Take the necessities, but travel light and dress appropriately. We wore lightweight quick-dry clothing and comfortable hiking shoes. We each carried a backpack with our camera equipment, toiletries, snacks, and lots of water.
Armed with some sketchy instructions found online prior to our arrival in China, we set out for the Dongzhimen long-distance bus station.
