Hello Chiniya,

The great wall is built on the outer ring of the city, meaning in the hills or mountains, so there ain't any hotel i know of; and if any, you will be one lonely family out in the forest, so to speak. And your transportation cost will go thru the roof for sure!! take taxi all the time...

Stay in the city centre, to enjoy shopping, food aplenty and see the city culture. Moreover all tours will start from the city centre and end in the city centre. Budget tours need volume and in the city is where they get the volume.

Hope you enjoy Beijing and at a lower cost !!

I agree with Mr.John. Once you exit the city boundaries, there are literally almost no hotels unless you count those shabby shacks that are set up as tourist traps. Considering that the Great Wall is located at least 50 miles away from the city, your best option for the arrival would be to first take a city shuttle bus to the train station and then board a train heading for the Great Wall. Some taxis in the city may be overpriced, and many of the taxis are illegally registered to where they don't have to pay the city.

After my experiences with Beijing, I would recommend staying in the city center because anything outside 10 miles of the city are farms. However, be prepared to blow your budget, as food and other refreshments are sky high in these tourist traps. Lousy freeloaders!
