"The Great Wall" Asia Things to Do Tip by keeweechic

Asia Things to Do: 396 reviews and 650 photos


No visit to China is complete without a trip to the Great Wall. The construction began more than 2,000 years ago on this wall that meanders more than 6,000 kilometres (3,728 miles) across the country.

Ming Tombs are the resting place of 13 of the 16 Ming emperors. The tombs tend to be a disappointment but the government is enhancing the area with a museum, helicopter rides over the tombs and the Great Wall amongst other things.

Address: Badaling, China

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
