Beijing – No trip to China is complete without experiencing the many wonders of its Great Wall.
Listed as one of the New Seven Wonders of the World and acknowledged as a World Heritage site by Unesco, The Great Wall of China attracts a multitude of tourists from around the globe every year.
Steeped in history, the wall is a reflection of Chinese culture and tradition and its visitors will not leave disappointed – it offers some of the most scenic views of one of the vastest and most contrasting countries on earth. Stretching approximately 8,851.8km from east to west China, the Great Wall winds up and down traversing deserts, mountains, valleys and grasslands.
Thamanoon Kuprasert, general manager of Central, Eastern and Southern Africa for Thai Airways International recommends that visitors take more than just a few hours to experience China’s historical hotspot.
“The wall has many sections each offering a diversity of scenery and its own unique historical landmarks,” he says.
