The Great Wall of China

长城/万里长城

Recommendation by Lemi

It’s time to cross off The Great Wall of China from your bucket list! The magnificent bulwark is divided into several restored and crumbling sections. Badaling is the most popular, mostly because of its proximity to Beijing; but you’ll have to brave the crowd for a great photo. Mutianyu is more quiet and wows with gorgeous natural surroundings. Prepare for a bit of a workout since there’s a little hike involved! Adventurous guests may tackle Simatai, the only section that allows night tours. It’s a less developed area, so the historic charm of the original fortification is preserved.
