Virtual Vacations Around The World: Great Wall Of China

May 15, 2020

Physical traveling may be off the table for a while, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a virtual adventure! While we may be stuck at home (for a very good reason!), we can still vacation to faraway places right from our living room couch. From national parks to historic sites to museums, satellites and virtual reality technology have made it possible for people to virtually travel all over the world. Heck, if we really wanted to, we could even visit the International Space Station and take a peek at what Earth looks like from outer space! How awesome is that, right? While many landmarks around the world are closed to visitors, virtual tours of these places are open 24/7. So sit back and relax while we take you on a trip to see some of the most amazing landmarks in the world. Bonus with virtual traveling? No packing, no airport security lines, and there’s no possible way you’ll lose your luggage!

Last week, we took a trip to the Pyramids of Giza. This week?

The Great Wall Of China

It may be called the Great Wall of China, but perhaps it should have been called the Humongous Wall of China! Covering over 5,500 miles, the wall was built to protect the people of China from invasions, but many historians now believe that it was more political propaganda than any real form of protection. Whatever the reason for why the wall was built in the first place, it is now a national treasure and recognized globally as one of the largest structures to ever have been built. Today, over ten million people visit the Great Wall every year.
