Gubei Water Town is a fantastic day visit.. Only 2 hours from Beijing. Judy was our tour guide and she was fantastic. From treating us to a fantastic lunch, to pointing out all the key landmarks at Gubei. We had an awesome time.. Very good place to take great pictures/see the great wall/feel like you are in a Swiss mountain town.. Will definitely return in the Summer.
If you want to escape the Beijing life for a mean time, go to Gubei. It’s a worth to visit, got a lot of interesting sights to see, if you want photography, you will surely love this place. Very traditional, got small alleys to take picture at, and don’t miss the show at night. You will be amazed how they collaborated the music and 3d effect all together. If you have more time, try out to feel being a princess by renting a costume, and take a picture around.
Gubei Water Town is my favorite place around Beijing. It's a very pittoresque and magical place. It's very well preserved and it is easy accesible. It is 1.5/2 hrs from Dongzhimen station and there is a direct bus that leaves in the morning (09:00). It is great to wander around the cosy village and explore all its corners and interesting attractions. The hotsprings are very beautiful and reaxing and there are so many great views in the Town. You can also visit a part of the Great Wall by night and overlook the Town. In summer there are also interesting small exhibitions and workshops. There are great food places and lots of little shops and authentic snacks. You can easily enjoy your time here for a few days and dive into the traditional culture : there are opera shows, arts and crafts shops and music.There is a pagoda, an old church, and traditional houses turned into musea. You also learn about the history or just enjoy your time with leisurely activities such as bowling, hotsprings and dining. It is a perfect getaway. We didn't organize our hostel on beforehand, we just went there and choose from the options, with hotsprings included.
The BEST place Ive been to in China!!! Gubei Water Town is a holiday place / retreat for EVERYONE! Honeymooners, families, friends and even the solo traveler like me! There is so much to see and do in this beautiful water town from the Simatai Great Wall, and the most amazing FREE water fountain light show that I have ever seen to traditional chinese food tastings, relaxing hot springs, beautiful idyllic scenery, water boat rides, lively bars and so much more, you cannot say you were in China if you did not visit this amazing water town. Its like experiencing the whole of China in one town! And its only one and a half hours drive by bus from central Beijing.
