Visiting the Frozen Gubei Water Town in Beijing
Gubei Water Town International Holiday Area is located in Miyun county, which is a one hour drive from Beijing. The entire water town covers an area of 9 square kilometers and is part of many Simatai Great Wall tours due to its location at the foot of Simatai. This scenic area was closed in 2010 for renovation and was reopened to the public on 1st January, 2014. Visiting Gubei Water Town during the winter months is the best time to experience the fantastic scenery of ice and snow.
There is four guesthouses and two hotels available for tourists who wish to stay overnight at the water town. During your stay you can take part in many cultural activities at the Wolong Fort Folk Cultural Area and taste the delicious local cuisine of the town at the guesthouses. You can also take a hike to the Simatai Great Wall and challenge yourself.
