Destination: Beijing China
Best deal found: I went to the 2008 Olympics and it was an unreal experience. I stayed at a “hutong” that was converted into a hostel. It cost about $26.00 USD a night plus the staff was friendly and very accomodating! The hostel offered a Great Wall tour that included transportation, breakfast, lunch, and entrance into the Grate Wall for about $47.00 USD! This is the Mutainyu section of the Great Wall.
