Should US citizens travel to Russia?

If you plan to sightsee on your own, you must have a tourist visa. We recommend U.S. citizens obtain a Russian visa before traveling to Russia, in case of an emergency while in the country, such as unexpected medical issues or if you are not able to return on the cruise ship for any reason.

Where can I see the Great Wall of China?

Having lived in China, I’ve been lucky enough to visit several sections of the wall. There are two within an hour’s drive of Beijing — Badaling and Mutianyu. But with such easy access, they can get very busy with day trippers. A couple of hours from the city is the Huangyaguan section, which sees fewer visitors.

Is it possible to camp on the Great Wall of China?

It is possible to camp at the Jiankou section of the Great Wall. If you’re a real adventurer, try wild camping on the Great Wall. Experience the stillness at night as you stargaze after hiking along Jiankou, the most adventurous section. The best time for wild camping at the Great Wall is early autumn before it gets too cold at night.

Where is Mutianyu section of Great Wall of China?

You’ll travel by air-conditioned minivan to the less-touristy Mutianyu section of the Great Wall of China, located 56 miles (90 kilometers) from Beijing. This section of the Great Wall offers unparalleled views from the Ming Dynasty watchtowers.

Is the Great Wall of China wheelchair accessible?

Remember, it’s not just foreigners who tour the Great Wall. Chinese love to visit as well on their days off. DO visit either Badaling or Mutianyu if you have mobility concerns; they both have aerial cable cars. Mutianyu also has a ski lift, but only Badaling is wheelchair accessible. DON’T expect clear skies.
