There are one hundred reasons to visit Beijing: The Forbidden City, the Temple of heaven, the Summer Palace. Along with these historical places, there is another remnant of China's imperial past—Beijing Gubei Water Town.
Beijing Gubei Water Town is a modern resort and a combination of sightseeing spot, vacation place, commerce exhibition and creative culture. It is located in Miyun County of Beijing near the Simatai Great Wall. The town is also known for its steepness and sublime scenery. Qianlong Emperor pays tribute to its steepness and importance more than once. Unlike the other travel destinations in Beijing, Gubei Water Town is lightly populated, so you can enjoy the calm. Also, there are a variety of hot springs where you can relax.
Besides, Gubei Water Town also offers a range of festival activities, especially at night. Take Visit Great Wall at Night for example. Imagine you are climbing the Great Wall, holding a lamp in your hand, and cast a glance behind yourself.What an intoxicating feeling it will be. Should you prefer to get even closer, and want to really immerse yourself in the China experience, then a hiking tour is for you.
