If you’re planning to camp on, or hike along the Great Wall, but haven’t brought any gear with you to China, then look no further than this collection of three Sanfo camping shops, practically side by side.
Sanfo stocks some of the best quality camping and hiking equipment in Beijing. You can pick up tents (from around ¥800), sleeping bags, rucksacks, camping stoves and all sorts of hiking gear, including good quality walking boots.
There’s also a couple of other, cheaper camping shops alongside this trio of Sanfo stores, which gives you another option if you’re on a tight budget.
The shops are about a 400m- to 500m-walk from Jiandemen subway station on Line 10. Turn right out of Exit D and walk south until you reach the 3rd ring road. Cross over the ring road using the pedestrian tunnel and bridge, and the camping shops will be to your right, behind the trees.
Building 2, No 3 Madian Nan Cun (by Madian Bridge on the north section of the 3rd ring road)
