They needed to be serious to build this wall. It is the wall itself that is the attraction, as the best part of the view is the sight of the wall zig-zagging into the distance. I would do it all again in a heartbeat!

If you go to China you MUST see the Great Wall. It can be only described as AMAZING. The walk is not easy but was very rewarding

Great wall deserves a visit! It's always full of tourists, but all the nice things are, right? If you have the opportunity to pass by Beijing, a tour to the Great Wall it's definitely a must!

No visit to Beijing or China would be complete without a visit here! Some of the steps are quite steep and unsteady, so make sure you have good comfortable sturdy footwear on.
