      Some shuttle buses take tourists from Beijing to the closest section of the WALL that's in good enough shape.
      Most of the tourists will go up for 2 hours to the highest point in that section, then walk back down to catch the shuttle bus back to town.
      I didn't know all of this until I asked my chinese friends about how crowded our day was during dinner. Also, if you the chance to go see the wall…beg your friends NOT TO TAKE YOU THERE ON SATURDAY

    #32 AAAhAA! Macarena !

  • Tiber_Septim

    An amazing feat of architecture for its day. I would love to go experience it

    • Boo

      Why would that be an amazing feat of archtecture? It is a really big wall. They didn't have to account for atmospheric pressure or geometrically line anything up with the sun at noon of the summer solstice. They just had a lot of people work a lot. Impressive, yes, architecturally impressive, no.

        Get back to us after you build a wall over 5,000 miles long.

    • juliana

      You absolutely should! I've been , and it was unspeakably incredible!

    As in like sardines<img src=""/&gt;

  • Justin Cider

    built by slaves..just say'n

    • Dan

      You have a problem with free labor?

      • It's true


    • arnold

      except that it wasn't, it was built by farmers (although they were being forced to) and paid laborers.

    • stash

      slave labor gets shit done

  • rikooprate

    #30 How YOU doin'?

    • chiver

      • Ryan

        Is that a new country/city?

  • Fun_with_Numbrs

    Eventually, the great Mall of China will be bigger.

  • Hunter_BZ

    I am gonna get bashed for saying this. But that was just a huge waste of time wasnt it. Did it really keep people out? You have to be bat shit insane to come up with a wall like that thinking it will keep people out? Im looking at you USA 🙂

    • Frank

      The US need a wall like this across the Mexican border.

      • Methos

        Wow, talk about missing the point.

    • Turrebo

      It kept people in.

  • SJM

    So no credit for ripping off The Atlantic gallery from yesterday?

    • saltygary

      Wow that's pretty bad. I got no problem with them grabbing stuff off of reddit and posting with no credit, but credit should have been given for this.

    • saltygary

      And the one photo they didn't take from that article that should of been the first one to take is the love boat crew on the wall.

  • chicago

    #4 double bonus experience! see the great wall and then compete on it. genius. add that on my to do list.

  • DeDav

    I love how this was posted after the fat guy trying to be Asian.

  • saltygary
  • chiver

    why can't they make and electronic device that lasts that long?

    • Methos

      Because you'd never have to replace it.

      • Woop

        Thank you for enlightening him. The japanese made stuff that lasts. Look at them now.

  • twoedges

    damn you mongorians… you try to break mah sheedy waarrr

    • Woop

      sounds more piratey than asian. Y U Break Mai Wall U stupid plicks.

  • BlueLizzardGame

    Looking at #33 it seems it would be quite easy to just swim / sail around the wall or were boats not invented yet?

    • Dr_StrangePants

      It would be bitch if you had a bunch of battle-gear, i guess

    • arnold

      the wall was built to keep the invading mongolians out, who actually didn't have the technology to build ships, it wasn't until the mongolian conqeust that they learned how to build ships!

      • BlueLizzardGame

        So a couple of swimming assassins are out of the questions or did Mongolians only learn how to swim after learning how to build boats?

        • arnold

          haha! that's a good question! well, seeing that the mongolians originated from dry stepps, i doubt that they could swim, but we may never truely know.

    • Boo

      If it were that easy, why would you walk the entire wall to the sea? Why not just get some rope or a ladder? I think, though not sure, that they had sentinals on the wall to watch for that.

  • juliana

    I'be been to China and have walked on this magnificent wall, it is an experience unlike any other and has irrevocably changed my life. Any one who wants to go….DO IT! It's truly incredible!
