Still standing and not going anywhere

An amazing feat dating back to the 5th century and spanning many centuries to build, The Great Wall is 13,170 miles long, making it the longest structure in the world. Initially built as a defense against enemies, the Great Wall of China stands today as a major tourist attraction for visitors worldwide. It has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1987. The main Great Wall line stretches from Shanhaiguan in the East, to Lop Lake in the West, along an arc that roughly delineates the southern edge of Inner Mongolia.

Construction

The Great Wall of China is a series of military fortresses made of stone, brick, earth, wood, and other materials, generally built along an east-to-west line across the historical northern borders of China in part to protect the Chinese Empire. The Great Wall has on and off been rebuilt, maintained, and enhanced, the majority of the existing wall are from the Ming Dynasty.  While some portions north of Beijing and near tourist centers have been preserved and even extensively renovated, in many locations the Wall is in disrepair. Those parts might serve as a village playground, or a source of stones to rebuild houses and roads.

The great wall of China is famous for it's great structure, sometimes I've thought that it was inspired by their belief on dragons. Because dragons we're the mascot used by the Chinese for Chinese New Year.
Also the great wall is like made with perseverance and will power, to help the dynasty protect their people from barbarians.

Every country has their own unique tourist spots. I have not yet visit the great wall of china but as I am reading other blogs about China, they say that it was really a nice place to go. I am planning to go their next year with my family as soon as I finish my Masters Degree. But as to just share my other experiences, I have been to Nami Island, Eiffel Tower and Hongkong disney land. I hope to also visit Barcelona and Italy also in the years to come. Thank you for sharing your blog.
