Built across the historical northern borders of the ancient Chinese state and Imperial China, The Great Wall of China is one of the greatest sights in the world.
Building the 13,000 miles (21,196 km) wall took more than 1800 years, and it is perhaps the most recognizable symbol of China and its vivid and long history.
The Quin Shi Huang Emperor ordered the construction of the Great Wall around 221 B.C. — and around 400,000 people died during the wall’s construction.
Badaling is one of the best-preserved and most visited section of the Great Wall Of China.
