This is Joe (Qiao), I moved to Gubeikou Great Wall after traveling to lots of different sections of the Great Wall:

1, Gubeikou WILD Great Wall is connected with touristy Jinshanling Great Wall and Simatai Great Wall.

2, Our house is located in the countryside, not in DOWNTOWN Beijing.

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 among the mountain, the east-side-wall of the house 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'!
