I appreciate this complex is aimed at the tourist and it may appear a little over done but I loved it .A real step back in time I thought it was just amazing ,could have spent a lot more time here rather than a flying visit after seeing the Great Wall. Not to be missed .

Gubei Watertown was a fabulous way to spend 2 days next to the great wall. The whole place is well organized with free entertainment, lots of options for a wide range of food. Good shopping that shows Chinese cultural and food. Lots of walking available to Pagoda, hilltop church and Great wall. Well with a short break. We were there over National day and it was busy but not too busy. Friendly people were helpful and welcoming in all attractions and restaurants. Loved it!!

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 view is really nice but Great Wall part is not good enough. Only water town part is enough to visit.

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 the small town and go to the wall around 5:30 and stay to watch the sunset. Then you can go back to the town and see the light show. Es una réplica bien hecha de un pueblo antiguo. Recomiendo comprar el boleto de la tarde /noche. Desde las 3 puedes entrar al pueblo y a las 5:30 subir a la muralla en el teleférico. Puedes quedarte hasta la puesta del sol y luego regresar al pueblo para ver el show de luces

We took a guide who drove us from Beijing to Gubei and stayed with us for the day. We did it as a mid to late day event so we could see the town lit up at night. It is a beautiful small town away from the crowds of Beijing. They have a few little entertainment shows that go on through the day, plenty of little shops and lots of restaurants. You can take a little boat around the canals which would be amazing at sunset. There is also a cable car to take you to the Simatai Great Wall which was not very crowded (in China terms) and definitely a must see.
