Walk the Great Wall of China
An inspiring experience
The Great Wall of China has achieved fame as the only manmade creation that can be seen from space. China’s Great Wall stretches more than 4,500 miles (7,200km) across the northern Chinese countryside.
The Great Wall of China is perhaps the most impressive feat of construction in the world and that’s why it cruises into the list at number two.
How to walk the Great Wall of China
Building of the wall began in the seventh century BC, with additions being constructions and parts rebuilt up to the sixteenth century AD. Large sections of the wall are in ruins or have disappeared, but there are excellent viewpoints a short drive from Beijing. Visitors can also take a cable car for a top class view of the wall. Many tour companies offer trips to the Great Wall.
