This small town built based on northern water culture is becoming a new fashionable landmark for night tours in Beijing, attracting more and more young people and international friends to come for vacation and leisure. It is also a paradise for photographers and food lovers.
The town is a gathering place for plants, with climbing vines from the family of Vitaceae and woody plants growing along the river.

The high eaves, along with the black tiles, hang down a string of red and green.
Beijing WTown, also known as Gu Bei Shui Zhen, is a fresh and peaceful place suitable for all kinds of artistic and fresh styles, with a plot of an ancient town. The night view is especially charming.
In recent years, Gu Bei Shui Zhen, also known as the "Northern Wuzhen," has attracted thousands of tourists with its ancient architecture, elegant environment, unique historical and cultural heritage, rich humanistic connotations, and strong folk customs. It has become a "dark horse" in the tourism industry of Miyun, Beijing, and even China. While being favored and driving the economy, it has also opened up a new path for ancient town tourism.
In the quiet autumn light, the earth is peaceful. Perhaps the best way to greet the town is to take a morning hike on the Great Wall. Walking, jogging, and breathing freely on the Great Wall, looking far and wide, the Great Wall stretches and twists, and the mountains are dyed layer by layer. Reflected in the first ray of morning light, feel the history and vicissitudes of the Great Wall, and human imagination reaches its peak in vast time. Looking down from the Great Wall, the river scenery on both sides is like a long scroll of landscape painting, slowly spreading out in front of you, gradually soaking into your eyes.
Gu Bei Shui Zhen is backed by the most beautiful and dangerous Simatai Great Wall in China and sits on the Yanjing Lake Reservoir. It is a rare combination of mountains, water, and the Great Wall in the suburbs of Beijing. Based on this, Gu Bei Shui Zhen relies on the historical and cultural heritage left by Simatai to conduct in-depth exploration. The 9-square-kilometer resort is planned as "six districts and three valleys," including the old camp area, the Republic of China street area, the water street style area, the Wolong Castle folk culture area, the Tanghe ancient village area, the homestay and catering area, and the Houchuan Zen Valley, Eden Valley, and Yunfeng Cuigu.
The town is perfect for photography, especially in autumn. Brushing past the mottled stone walls and entering the courtyard covered with red leaves. Every rise and turn is an unexpected joy. Girls in the town dance with their skirts, and street boys play their beloved guitars. Dressed in red or plain clothes, with the light and shadow playing in the background, time slows down during the photography journey.
The elegant houses, clear streams, and stone bridges give this place a taste and charm of Jiangnan. It is not Zhouzhuang or Wuzhen, but it combines the essence of both beautiful places. Every detail speaks of the unique poetry and agility of Jiangnan.
