Apple Tree Guesthouse is a house with two private apartments, one bathroom, one living room with "home theater"and a kitchen. Both of the apartments and bathroom are on the second floor, each of room has private balcony with nice view where you can see the Great Wall. Only 5 mins walk from Gubei Water town and shuttle bus point of SIMATAI GREAT WALL.
Simatai, a section of the Great Wall of China located in the north of Miyun County, 120 km northeast of Beijing, holds the access to Gubeikou, a strategic pass in the eastern part of the Great Wall. It's one of the most untouched section of the Great Wall which will surely become the highlight of your trip to China!
Gubei Water Town is a beautiful small town in north-east Beijing, especially renovated by a large tourism company in China. The structure of the water town is beautiful and clean and well resembled the old China town.The night view of the town is stunning! It is a good place to feel about the uptown Beijing. It consists of many organized home inns, bars, restaurants and small shops, with well-maintained facilities. The water town lies under the Simatai Great Wall, so you can even go and see the Great Wall at night, which is quite different from the day views.
It's a cosy and sweet cottage bedecked with flowers and landscape. Living rooms are spacious and WIFI is fast. The fabulous thing is that you can enjoy the looming night scene of Beijing wTown and Simatai Chinese Wall on the balcony. By the way, the uncle host is kind and warmhearted. The only drawback is you cannot find a convenience store nearby, you'd better bring some snacks on your own. Anyway, it's a wonderful trip.
