IIRC, I went here - http://www.travelchinaguide.com/china_great_wall/scene/beijing/juyongguan.htm, http://www.tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g294212-d1563680-Reviews-Juyong_Pass_of_Great_Wall-Beijing.html
Thanks. Any thoughts on the trip length?

ETA:
So we want to fly SIN-PEK-HKG in J.

The two options are a CA A330 redeye where sleeping will be key, or an SQ 77W leaving 16:55 arriving 23:00.

Also to keep in mind how much time we'd need in PEK. The above flights are on a Tue, and we plan on leaving on Thu morning on a CA 772.
Is it a bad idea to take SQ and arrive in PEK so late, and then only have 1 full day to do things?

BJ has great options for Marriott points, check it out. I prefer SHA, more history and more jewish history. Check out the art village, (I don't remember the name)

How much of Friday do you have (winter/summer)? We're going for 2 days and plan on going to the Wall at Mutianyu, the Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square, and Silk Road. You'll have more time, but that's a start.

Well, we're gonna be doing PEK this time around, so perhaps next time. And we're booked at Fairmont, which is close to Chabad.

I was asking more for activities/sites..

We're going in summer, so we have until after 7.

You are AJK, I figured that you have already visited both pek and pvg and saw all the sights therefore I suggested the art village in Beijing.

Lol. I'm sure you're much more well traveled in North Asia than me.

Tho I sure am looking forward to PEK, even if it will be boiling.

Before then. Inquire within if you so desire.
