The Great Wall

Claim to be a hero at the top of the Great Wall

To set foot on the Great Wall is to set foot on history – and arguably the planet’s most recognizable man-made structure. Plunging and climbing over the hills of northern China for more than 5,000 miles, the wall was constructed from the seventh century onward to protect the Chinese empire from invaders. It remains an unmissable part of the overall China experience.
