Wonders of the World


Great Wall of China, China

A magnificent feat of construction, the Great Wall winds for thousands of miles in sections from Shanhaiguan on China's east coast to Jiayuguan in the west. While it's nonsense that it can be seen from space, its scale is extraordinary. Most of the wall that still exists today was built during the Ming dynasty, when watchtowers and fortresses were added to strengthen its defense. Some of its best-preserved sections can be found snaking across hilltops north of Beijing, whilst the watchtowers of Mutianyu provide spectacular outlooks.
