World Heritage Sites in China

by Atsushi

China is known as a country with many World Heritage Sites. There are 41 world heritage sites as of 2011. The Great Wall is very popular. I do not like China so much. However, I would like to go to the Great Wall. So, I investigated about the Great Wall. 

The Great Wall was made in the 7th century B.C., so has been around for over 2000 years. It is the world's largest rampart of about 6000 km of total extension, and we can also clearly see it with a satellite photograph. 

The purpose that the long castle was developed is for preventing north horse-riding people's penetration. China has much world heritage. 

I have never been to China. However, if I have time, I would like to go to see not only the Great Wall, but other world heritage sites too.

I would like to go to the Great Wall
by: Gary Wolff

Thanks for your story, Atsushi.

Yes, the Great Wall is an awesome place.

I had the pleasure of going there once back in '02 with a Chinese girl I was dating at the time.

It was a 5-day Japanese tour package where we also visited Shanghai and Suzhou.

I hope your dream to visit China & the Great Wall comes true !
