Hey, I'm Joe!

This is Joe (Qiao), who is a big fan of the Great Wall. I moved to Gubeikou Great Wall after traveling to lots of different types of the Great Wall:

1) Gubeikou Great Wall is the wild wall connected with Jinshanling Great Wall and Simatai Great Wall.
2) Our house is located in the countryside, not in DOWNTOWN Beijing.
3) If you want to experience REAL and WILD Great Wall, Gubeikou is the one what you must do.

Welcome to the Great Wall Box House, locates at the most tradtional but non-touristy Chinese village -- Gubeikou, 120 km to Beijing. It's a 100-year-old Si-He-Yuan house in the mountain, the east-side-wall is a part of the Great Wall. Gubeikou is like a Great Wall museum, from Bei Qi dynasty (6th Century) - Ming dynasty (14th Century). that's to say 'the Great Wall was not built in one day'!
