The Great Wall is an amazing engineering feat with nothing else comparing to it in the world. Winding through 13,000 miles, the most popular parts of the wall are very close to Běijīng.

The Great Wall does not run continuously, but instead is broken up into parts where there are natural defenses, such as steep mountains. The main part of the wall runs for over 2,000 miles continuously, holding the record as the longest in the world.

It began to officially be built in 221 B.C., with most of the remaining wall built between the 1300’s and the 1600’s by the Ming dynasty.
