Over 10 million people visit the Great Wall every single year. The historical and architectural elements of the wall baffle the mind. It was erected over the course of 6 different dynasties in ancient China and contrary to presumption spurs off in different directions, breaking where mountains or lakes offer protection.
Whilst you can’t actually see it from space, it’s something you’ll want to take the time to see here on earth. At 21,196 km long, it would take over a year to walk the entire length.
Most people skip straight to the most popular spots and spend a few hours taking photos, but there are also organised treks for those who want to see more of it. Visiting the wall is a great way to immerse yourself into ancient Chinese culture as its construction spanned most of its 2,700-year history.

The Simatai Great Wall is the only section that opens for a night tour. It also has a hotel nearby which you could stay in to see the sunrise in the morning before the crowds.
