I went to China with a school trip last summer. It was an organization which was led by the China Government and they invited a lot of schools all around the world. It was a 10-day trip but it felt like much longer because we had so many memories that cannot fit in only 10 days. I had so much fun. But of course one of the biggest reason that I had such good memories was, I had two of my best friends along the journey. It's always better when you have your buddies with you.

About the Great Wall, it was the most exciting trip for me in these 10 days because I really wanted to see it, to see if it was really that big and believe me, it is literally enormous. So obviously, we couldn't climbed up to all of it but, me and my friends, we were the ones that climbed up to the highest.

It was a tiring yet entertaining day for us. Even though we climbed a lot, I wish we could climb much more. We had a time limit so we had to return before it ended. But from the point we climbed, there was a breathtaking view even though that day the weather was foggy. 

Anyways, if I ever have the chance to go back to the Wall again, I would love to take it!

 Went to the non-touristic part of the Great Wall and was absolutly Stunnig! 

Best memory? When we climb during the night with only 3 headlamp for 7 peopls, bit scary but also fun. Was amazing to lie on the Great Wall and watch all those stars!!

You should definitly do it!

It took us almost 4 hours to reach the Great Wall...

We spent the rest of the day there. The views are beautiful and you can walk as far as you want; be prepared it is quite a hike with all these hundreds of steps.

Visited Great Wall of China done!!! one thing you don't realize is how steep the pathway can get, almost just a 45 degree straight pathway, I think would of made more sense just to build stairs, definitely worthwhile to do once.... also while I was here I visited to Forbidden City, Temple of Heaven and a famous Peking Duck restaurant....

 I was in China for 2 months working/studiyng in Shanghai and during the Chinese's New Year me and some friends got the chance to visit Beijing and see this amazing place.

we were there for 4-5 hours and still was nothing, think a week wouldn't be enough also to see it all.

The Great Wall's architectural grandeur truly embodies the rich history of China. Walking on the old bricks and stones is like having a taste of China, back when the ruling of great dynasties dominated the country.

Amazing experience! So peaceful and beautiful. We drove out 3 hours to get to a section with less people and it was well worth it!

In China for work whilst I was at EAL so stopped off for an extra week of sightseeing with my colleagues! View from the topmost watchtower was astonishing. Great time of year to visit. Chinese tourists were surprised to see westerners so had to stop for a few pictures!!

It was hot! Like really hot! But it was amazing and unbelievable! Took some great pictures and didn't want to leave!

If there'll be a next time - then I'll try to get on the sleep-over-tour with one of the hostels in Beijing. Sounds so amazing!

 Walked on the Great Wall of China in 2013. It was 40 degrees Celsius that day. A memorable excursion nonetheless!

I was like 12 at that time with my family. It was really cold so we didn't get to climb at the top. I thought that the wall would be bigger but it wasn't. I hope that I could visit it again in the future just so that I could reach the end of the wall.

Went to Beijing and the Great Wall my senior year of high school in March 2013. I hiked up the wall with my accountability buddy Gina.

It was really awesome, I went with my twin sister and we did a hike through part of it. It would actually take forever to walk the whole thing though, so we didn't do that. It looked really amazing though, but it is really tiring to hike through, because it can get so steep.
