Dating back to 453 B.C., the largest wall in the world is really comprised of several walls made of varying materials and stretches from the Bo Hai Sea to the Gobi Desert.
It took us 7 hours to get there because of a traffic jam only to have 1 hour of daylight.

We were given so little time to visit the wall that it absolutely broke our hearts.

The wall goes on for miles and miles. Again lots of walking and very crowded although Bob brought us early so he said we missed most of the crowds. A great experience

It's a 3 hour bus trip from Tian Jin (port) to Beijing. We had booked the tours before we went and as we were traveling with others, couldn't make changes without upsetting everyone's plans.
