    Starting on Sunday morning, it was noon in Anshui Town. The booked Great Wall originated from the residential quarters. The place of residence was outside the scenic spot of Gubeishui Town, but it was very close. It was only five minutes away. A little rectification at 3:00 p.m. (280/Renshui Town ticket + Simatai Great Wall ticket + two-way cable car ticket set), children less than 1.2 meters do not need tickets, but the cable car to half price, including the second one we still hold for three months) tour, the town is very large, but basically not very good use, half of the houses are antique houses, not managed by businesses, Sunday afternoon. There are few people in the evening, and accommodation is cheap. It's twice the usual price and it's twice as expensive at weekends. There are also many places to stay in the town. There are hotels and lodgings. Because the tickets are one-time, you can't go out. If you live in the town, you don't have to worry about the second cost of a day's tour. But the accommodation inside is not very well booked, and much more expensive than outside. I think one day is enough to finish the tour, mainly to see the night scenery, which is very good. A baby carriage can be stored at the entrance. The staff said one third of the carriage was staircase, but we took it with us. We were afraid that the child would fall asleep and have nowhere to put it. So we had to carry the steps of the carriage many times along the way, but overall it was good and not too hard. From 5:30 p.m., we can take a cable car to the Great Wall. The entrance of the Great Wall is in the middle of the town. Our pedestrians stroll around and take pictures. It happens to be more than 5 o'clock. Because the children are small, a three-year-old and a three-month-old, if the young people with good legs and feet, they will be faster. There are food streets and convenience stores, eat a little, take a cable car up the hill, walk to the Great Wall beacon tower after getting off the cable car. Because the night view of the Great Wall is not long open, only two beacon towers can visit at night, but enough, because it has to walk for a long time. I wanted to come down after watching the night scene on the Great Wall, but the wind was cold and the children were small, so I took the cable car down before the lights turned on at 7:45. The entrance of the Great Wall is very close to the music fountain of Shuizhen, about 2 minutes. Music fountains begin at 7:40, with intervals of 35 minutes, each 20 minutes, to about 10:30. Riyuewan Square also has a Peking Opera performance. It's great. The scenery along the way is beautiful, better than during the day, the bars are open, very similar to the feeling of Lijiang ancient city, but not as lively as that, there are foot bath places, outside there are two free hot springs, foot soaking, very comfortable. At the foot of the Great Wall, there are hot springs, which are hot springs hotels. They can accommodate, time relations, and without swimsuits, they can not soak. Unfortunately, open-air hot springs can see the Great Wall. The overall feeling is good, suitable for short-distance travel in Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei, accommodation costs are still acceptable. Driving from Tianjin for more than 3 hours is suitable for self-driving.

    I don't know where to start. It's so unexpected. I'm tired of the noisy city and the fast-paced life. I just enjoy coming here. Relax your body, let go of your feelings, everything is so leisurely. Although the scenic spot is newly built, all the facilities are clean and sanitary, but it still retains many old monuments. The wall of Yanhe River was built with bricks left over from the brick kiln where the Great Wall was built. It is amazing. The Yanhang Inn we stayed in here can be booked on the Internet a long time in advance. In the second half of the scenic spot, the car parked near the entrance of the scenic spot. After checking in at the tourist service center, the luggage was towed to the hotel. We traveled to the Inn by ourselves all the way. We were almost tired. We went upstairs for a short rest, and out the entrance was the snack street, where we ate all kinds of special snacks. Here we recommend pancakes and radish shredded cakes. Because there are too many people waiting in the queue, there are also western food in the scenic spot. We want to have a little wine. We went to William's Western Restaurant. The environment is super-excellent. It has both western style and antique flavor. Night falls. Sitting on the terrace, we eat Western food, drink red wine, and look at the night scene of the church on the top of the hill unconsciously. It's just floating like a fairy! On the way back to the hotel, I passed the grand stage and the bookstore. At this time, the wind still had a cool feeling. Here in the morning, very quiet, open the curtains, quiet beauty, riverside restaurant eating breakfast, looking at the Great Wall, start! We went up the ropeway. The cable car was very good. We climbed to the top of the ropeway and looked down. It was foggy. We shouted and let it go. Come down just at noon, after dinner by boat back to the entrance, the boatman is very talkative, all the way to introduce the ancient town to us, combined with our own tour, feel very good, this successful return, next time we are going to stay in the William Hotel, mountain bookstore or something to experience. A super trip, Shanghai, Wuzhen, West Lake, Hong Kong. Neither of them felt comfortable this time.

    Gubeishui Town, located in Miyun District, Beijing, is a scenic spot built at the foot of the Great Wall of Simatai, Gubeikou. The construction layout of Shuizhen is basically based on Wuzhen in the south of the Yangtze River, which is called Wuzhen in the north. Although it was built according to the layout and structure of Wuzhen, it still has some shortcomings compared with Wuzhen, but it is very good in the north.

    A good trip. The gentleness and gracefulness of the flowing water of the small bridge and the masculinity and perseverance of the Great Wall reflect each other, forming the unique beauty of the northern "Jiangnan Water Township". It is worth visiting.

    Nine years ago, I visited Wuzhen, Xitang, in the south of the Yangtze River. From then on, I missed the scenery which was gentle and beautiful. In June this year, my sister-in-law's family, who returned from the United States, went to Gubei Water Town, known as Northern Wuzhen. Gubeishui Town = Shui Town + Simatai Great Wall, the scenery is like today's women, both gentle heart, and as strong as iron man. Starting from downtown on Sunday, we reserved Gubeishuizhen Hotel. Hotel guests can enjoy half price of water town tickets. On the first day, I visited Gubeishui Town. The whole scenic area of Yantang River is divided into three districts from west to East - Shuijie historical area, Wolongbao folk culture area and Tanghe Guzhai area. Visit scenic spots "Sima Xiaofei", "Yongshun Dyeing Workshop", "Goldfish Workshop" all the way, experience painting kites in "Wind House Kite", Yang Wudi Temple, Zhenyuan Bodyguard Bureau, return to Riyue Island Square at sunset and have dinner at Tanghe Muslim Restaurant. During the day, the weather in Shuizhen changed greatly. In the morning, the sky was blue and clouds were white. In the afternoon, after the rain, Shuizhen was green and wet, as if walking on the block of Wuzhen. In the evening, when night falls, people turn around like knitting. It's four or five degrees lower than the city. The whole town and the Great Wall of Simatai are more mysterious and charming in the light of night. In the daytime, a small family "Jiankun Hall Flower Lamp Shop" is very busy at night, with colorful lanterns. Most of the visitors bring one or two lanterns, childhood memories and expectations. The next morning, they enter the garden again with their reserved fingerprints and ID cards. The whole town is still sleeping. We go straight to the Great Wall of Simatai and begin to challenge ourselves. In the hot sun, sweating and sweating, a pedestrian climbs from the second floor to the eighth floor - Wangjing Tower instead of choosing a cable car. The Great Wall of Simatai, which is famous for its strange, special and dangerous nature, finally stepped on its own feet and praised everyone. There are many recreational and leisure projects in Gubei Water Town. After climbing the Great Wall, we went to the "Yuda Hot Spring" pond to soak in it. During the day, soaking in hot springs not only relaxes the body and mind, alleviates fatigue, but also enjoys the distant Great Wall while soaking ("Eight Banners Guild Hall", "Gubeibaked pear" experience. The "swaying boat" is also a major feature of the ancient Beishui town. During the day, you can feel the simplicity of the water town, and at night, you can enjoy the lights of the water town. No boat, leave a little regret, hope to come again next time, Gubeishui Town, I will come back.

    非常非常值得一去的古镇。如果时间充裕可以选择晚上住古镇的客栈,游玩方便,管理规范,而且还可以享受古镇优惠票价。冬天去的,可能因为在山区气温低,北京市区的雪早就化没了,这里还有不少积雪。雪中的古镇温馨而静谧,即使周末人也不多,可以悠闲地转悠。在民俗方面,小镇有很多民俗店,风筝,花灯,染坊,酒坊,剪纸皮影各种,还有好几个场次的皮影戏可以看,有不少diy项目,自己或者带小孩子动手做很有趣味。在饮食方面,一进古镇一条街上好多小吃,梅菜饼蛮好吃,想起了大学里武大郎烧饼的味道哈哈。小镇还有专门的小吃一条街,有不少餐店,中西餐都有味道都不错。在游玩方面,自然风光很好看,虽然今年冬天实在太冷,去的时候发现夜晚气温太低放弃了夜游长城,但是想来应该很不错,可以天暖再来。夕阳照在山上红彤彤的,竟有点张掖丹霞的影子~在住宿方面,古镇是统一办理住宿,出了停车场过桥之前有行李服务处,可以帮忙把行李送到下榻的客栈。游客中心办入住的时候各项注意事项也交代的很详细。我们是住在杨家客栈,位置很好,一层紧邻水边,出了阳台就是小桥流水很不错。据说整个小镇是经营乌镇的公司在管理的,各方面感觉做的周到,希望可以越来越棒!

    古北水镇的美,在于它有南方的秀美,当你置身在此,你真的会怀疑自己在乌镇,在西塘,在丽江,在你曾经去过的某个古镇,可见这个古镇仿造的多么用心,精致。古北水镇的美,也是独一无二的,在于它有着北方的豪迈,因为水镇坐落在司马台长城脚下,所以真的推荐在此最少住一天,自己去用心感受。如果带娃来,可以注意这几个景点。1永顺大染坊,可以和娃们在垂下的染布间穿梭,玩玩捉迷藏。2皮影馆,一小时一场,每次表演的剧目不同,每场在10分钟左右,娃们自己探秘了以下表演间,发现几位爷爷现场用扬琴等乐器配音3.中央大戏台。有些小时候的玩意,如糖画,拉洋片,吹糖人。还有定时表演的杂技,舞狮,西河大鼓等。4.龙凤泡脚池,走累了,泡泡脚,好舒服。只是泡脚的人非常多,要耐心等待。5.大的点的娃一定要去坐缆车到司马台长城,可以俯瞰整个水镇。另外提醒一下,在古镇里住宿的客人,如果多次出入古镇,要到入口处,有一个专门办理住宿出入证的地方哦。最重要的只说一遍,一定要看水镇的夜景。

They can also experience the sights of Sima Xiaofei, Yongshun Dyeing Fang, Yinghua Academy, Yang Wudi Temple, Zhenyuan Bodyguard Bureau, Baqi Guild Hall, Yueliao Temple, Simatai Great Wall and so on. Simatai at night is old and quiet. Walking up the Great Wall and enjoying Gubei Water Town, which has gone through hundreds of years of vicissitudes, Simatai is the only Great Wall open to night tours in Beijing. Absolute photography enthusiasts have a good opportunity to capture the night scenery. It is a good experience to enjoy the music and water scenery of the Great Wall in Wangjing Street and perform Peking Opera, Three Strings and acrobatics in Riyue Island Square.

    Come with my family, the weekend weather is very good, the summer scenery is beautiful, the green plants grow up, the water is green, many fish, many beautiful buildings, small boats, in a word, the environment here is really good, the scenery is beautiful day and night, it feels like two worlds, it is beautiful and beautiful to recommend you to come here for a day or two to enjoy the whole feeling. The days and nights here are very good. The catering here is heavy in form and not in taste. It's really very, very ordinary, but the decoration and adjustment are very good. If you come for delicious food, you will be disappointed, but only to feel the atmosphere. Here's a good choice for everyone to play. Don't take a battery car, walk, walk down, basically 4-5 small ones. It's very interesting. Give the designers here a big compliment.

    住在附近的农历就可以,里面住宿每个千八下不来,最好就看夜景,80一个人,比白天景色好,不建议买白天夜晚通票,就五点半以后去,里面购物和饮食都别买,太贵!当经典看看把商店,饭店,和客栈当景点看就得了,建议有到鸳鸯码头,大概2个小时,之后做穿一个人120,能做六个人,包船600回到起点出去,司马台晚上就别蹬了,长城陡,有点危险。综合评定,太值的一去的景点了,太经典了,尤其在北方有这么一个水镇!必去!
