Guide Description

Long known as one of the Seven Wonders of the World, this amazing engineering feat is an awesome sight to behold as it snakes its way across China. It is the worlds longest outdoor museum, stretching from Jiayaguan in the west to Shanhaiguan on the eastern seaboard. The Chinese started building the Wall in the 6 th century BC to defend themselves against invaders swooping down from the north. Today it is one of the most visited tourist attractions on earth: to walk on the Wall is to walk on history.
