ssh -X is a nice build-in feature to get display but it could be very slow.
Here a fast non-secure way to get a remote desktop with tighvnc.
On Remote Host:
apt-get install tightvncserver tightvncserver
On Local Host
apt-get install gvncviewer gvncviewer Remote_Host_IP:1
When done kill Xtightvnc On Remote Host:
pkill Xtightvnc ps -ef | grep Xtightvnc
