"THE GREAT WALL - There are not..." Great Wall of China - Badaling Tip by kimberbakos

Great Wall of China - Badaling, Beijing: 112 reviews and 246 photos


THE GREAT WALL - There are not enough words in any language to describe this wonder of the world. 'Great' doesn't even come close!
The immensity of the Wall is mindboggling. To be standing on it, and at the same time see it stretch all around you in all directions, is hard to wrap your brain around. I can't imagine anything that is a greater testament to man's ability to do whatever his mind is set on doing.

Directions: We were at the pass at Badaling, but there are many locations in the Beijing area and beyond. I would think that each section would have a slightly different 'flavor' and view.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
