Explore the Great Wall
Stretching more than 20,000 kilometres when you include all of its spurs and branches, the Great Wall of China truly lives up to its name. Most visitors see just a fraction of its immensity, but it’s still enough for a lifetime of memories. With sections dating back as far as the 7th century BC, the legendary defensive wall winds up, down and over some of China’s most beautiful mountain regions. The sections of wall closest to Beijing include additional attractions, including a cable car that’ll save you climbing the thousand steps to its summit.
