Any bookstore either in China or overseas. Even airport bookstores usually have a stock of them. If in Beijing already, ask at hotel receptions. They sometimes have a free tourist type map. Getting a hard copy map should be very easy to achieve. But, of course, if by some miracle you cannot get hold of one, there's always Google maps. As for getting there, you could try being adventurous and taking public transport. There are buses that go to many of the common GW locations. The worst option is organized travel groups. They are overpriced and more interested in getting you to the overpriced tourist souvenir shops through whom they pick up extra commission. Best to try and get there alone or with a group of friends.

You can download a PDF version from http://english.visitbeijing.com.cn/upload/enmap.pdf

 

If you travel to Beijing, be sure to climb the Great Wall. There is a saying in China that you won't become a hero untill you climb up the Great Wall. There are about eight sections of the Great Wall around Beijing. So choosing your favorite section is very important.

The Badaling Great Wall and the Juyongguan Great Wall are both located to the northwest of Beijing. They are usually coupled with the visit to the Ming Tombs when you choose one of these two sections of the Great Wall. The Badaling Great Wall is very developed and equipped with cable cars while the Juyongguan has no such facilities and you have to climb up the wall by foot. The Juyongguan Great Wall is less commercial with an easy accessible parking area. Its parking lot is very close to the starting point of the Great Wall.

The Mutianyu Great Wall is located in Huairou District in the north of Beijing. This section of the Greta Wall is a little bit less crowded. You can use the cable car to get to the top of the Great Wall. The Mutianyu Great Wall is very green with dense trees.

If you have the time (2 days) www.greatwallfresh.com is always a treat. You will probably have to stay overnight but the younger son speaks good English.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
