The Great Wall, a World Heritage Site

China's Great Wall

China's Great Wall

I visited China in May of this year, and I went to the Great Wall. It was not only beautiful, but a historic structure. However, there was much garbage and many cigarette butts!

It was unbelievable for me that people would throw away trash at a World Heritage Site. There were a lot of people who smoked without shame, and ate foods with scattered rubbish.

It depressed me something awful to see them. What is more, there were people who didn't listen to the officials' warnings about their behavior.

Should this thing be permitted? The answer is NO.

To protect historic buildings, we must observe our manners. That goes without saying!

I wish the World Heritage Site, the Great Wall, will remain permanently.

Trash on the Great Wall
by: Gary Wolff

I agree with you, Shiomi. When I visited the Great Wall in 2003, it was also very dirty.

But I'm very happy you were able to visit such a wonderful place.

Thanks for the nice story...
