The Great Wall of China is a must-see attraction for tourists in China. The most visited section of the wall is the Great Wall at Badaling.
In response to the popularity of the site, a high-speed railway connecting Beijing downtown and the Great Wall at Badaling has put into service. These high-speed trains depart from Beijing North Railway Station or Qinghe Railway Station and end at Badaling Great Wall Railway Station, with the travel time of around 20 minutes.
Besides, non-bullet trains between Beijing and the Great Wall at Badaling are still available. Tickets on non-bullet trains can only be bought at the train station.
