15 hours on a flight is not for the faint hearted…however, when you have the opportunity to visit the Great Wall of China (the Long Wall as the Chinese refer to it), it all becomes worth it!  The Great Wall of China is one of the greatest sights in the world.  It is an awe-inspiring feat of ancient defensive architecture.  The Wall is the building project with the longest duration and the greatest cost in human life, blood, sweat and tears.  The most powerful advertising words in history come from the mouth of Chairman Mao “Until you reach the great wall, you’re no hero”.  This wall that modern estimates believe is 8850km, is a sight to see.

The main purpose of my travel was to do training for CYTS International Travel Co.  Typical of Chinese hospitality, everyone made me feel most welcome.  The staff are very friendly and always willing to ensure that you are happy.  If you ever travel to China and are wanting to explore this amazing destination that has so much to offer, my suggestion is that you contact http://www.chinatraveldepot.com/  They will ensure that you are well looked after.
