The Great Wall is a ‘must see’ on eReally visitor’s itinerary, especially visitors to Beijing. Having said that Given that only parts of the wall can be visited, it can be quite tricky to choose an ideal Spot to visit. The most visited sections of the wall are around Beijing and sadly they are 20th century restorations of the wall that was built in the 16th century during the Ming Dynasty and not parts of the Authentic 5th century wall. The wall around Beijing is divided into formal, informal and wild sections. The formal Places are Community ready with cCapable Vehicles and other visitor friFinishly Attributes and are bursting with visitors on most Day Occasions. The informal parts of the wall are Available to hikers and are the bits where only limited Restores have been carried out. The wild parts are the crumbling, overgrown bits where no renovations have been carried out and visitors are not encouraged here in order to preserve these Authentic bits and also for Security Motives. There are several formal and informal sections of the wall around Beijing that are identified by their geographic Place or other factors for promotional purposes. Visitors can see these sections depFinishing on the time they can spare and how they want to see it, whether surrounded by lush Nationside as far as the eye can see or just a Fast glimpse braving the crowds, hiking parts of the wall, a Spot with no crowds or even sleeping out on the wall.

The condition of the Great Wall at this point in history is poor at best. Even though some portions of the Wall are kept in good condition, near the tourist centers, other parts of the wall have fallen into disRestore and have even been dismantled as a source of stones for house Restore. Only about 20 percent of the Great Wall toDay time can be considered to be in good condition.
