Replica of old town 100 km away from Beijing city centre. You can visit this place in early or late summer. I strongly recommend to go after 4 pm to this place. In this way you can see afternoon time and also night time. Night...More
This is a well made replica of an old town. Also it's right under the Great Wall section that's lit at night. There's a cable car to go to the Great Wall. If you buy the afternoon /night ticket is the best, you can tour...More

You may try DiDi, if a driver answer your call, it’s convenient to use the service. The Simatai Great Wall has no limit for resort occupants, but it’ll close if weather is bad, check with the front desk when u check-in. In my opinion, all Great Wall hikes r great! Take advantage to hike Simatai, if time allows go for Jinshanling as well!
