This item appears on page 4 of the August 2019 issue.

On June 1, China began limiting the number of visitors to the Badaling section of the Great Wall, outside of Beijing, to 65,000 people per day. To help enforce the limit, timed tickets for visiting that section must now be purchased at least seven days in advance.

As of press time, tickets were available only with the assistance of Chinese-speaking travel agents. A ticket costs CNY40 (near $6), April 1-Oct. 31, and CNY35, Nov. 1-March 31.
