BEIJING — A two-month-long Great Wall cultural festival will open in Beijing on Aug 8, which will allow tourists to visit the Badaling section of the ancient wall on weekend nights.

Visitors can reserve night tours of the Badaling Great Wall every Friday and Saturday during the festival that will end on Oct 7, said Chen Mingjie, head of the Beijing municipal administration of cultural heritage, said at a news conference held in Beijing on Aug 7.

An evening gala of the Mid-Autumn Festival, a cultural fair on Chinese traditional costumes and online lectures including one about cultural heritage protection that is co-organized by the Hadrian's Wall of Britain, are also scheduled during the festival, said Chen.
