Once in China if you do not plan on visiting the Great Wall of China you will be missing out on an amazing experience. You must be able to walk for some distance - wear confortable shoes.

We didn't see it in the greatest weather but that did not detract from the sheer magnificence. One of the greatest sights in the world.

You do not need to show your passports or visas to go to the Great Wall. Or buy tickets at the Wall If you want to go to the Forbidden City or Tianemen Square in central Beijing you do!
