The Great Wall of China
The Great Wall of China, which is said to be visible from the moon, winds up and down across deserts, grasslands and mountains of 5 provinces. It is considered one of the greatest man-made wonders in the world thanks to its magnificence and significance. In 1987, the Great Wall was listed as a World Heritage by UNESCO.
The Great Wall as we see today was mostly built during the Ming Dynasty for defence purposes. It started in 1368 and took 200 years to complete. Some parts of the wall are much older and go back to around 200. It stretches for about 6,000 km from east to west. The wall is about 11 meters high and a stone roadway runs along the top of it.
The Great Wall is a symbol of the Chinese nation throughout history. If you prefer to see the wall in a relatively natural state, you’d better go to the northwest of Beijing. This part of the wall is the best choice for it is still in its original state. A visit to the Great Wall will certainly bring tourists great excitement in each step of the wall.
