      Stop At: Gubei Water Town, Simatai villege, Gubeikou town, Beijing China

      Situated in Gubeikou Town of Miyun County in Beijing, Gubei Water Town surrounds the beautiful Mandarin Duck Lake Reservoir and leans against the Simatai Great Wall, the most dangerous and majestic section of the entire Great Wall. Regarded as 'Wuzhen in Beijing,' Gubei Water Town boasts a combination of mountains, water, and ancient villages.
      The water town was built on the former five subnatural villages of Simatai Village at the foot of Simatai Great Wall. The Simatai village was developed from Simatai Castle built during the reign of Emperor Wanli ( 1573 -1620 ) in the Ming Dynasty (1368–1644).
      It is not just a historical water town but is a northern Chinese version of Wuzhen Water Town in Southern China, has developed into a large-scale sightseeing and holiday destination.
