The Great Wall of China | Chasing Krista | Beijing, China

The Great Wall of China

The Great Wall of China; 长城 (cháng chéng), 万里长城 (wàn lǐ cháng chéng) literally translates to “The Long Wall of 10,000 miles” and it is one of the longest walls in the world. Over ten million people visit the Great Wall of China every year and the amount of information around how to properly explore this giant architectural landmark is overwhelming. If you are anything like me, I did a TON of research prior to witnessing the Great Wall of China. I didn’t want to miss anything!

Here’s my guide for preparing for your trip to China, for packing and understand what is to come (bring your own tp).
