Great Wall of China

April 24, 2020

Great Wall of China Virtual Tour 

The Great Wall of China, one of the seven wonders of the world, is an unmissable attraction. What better way to tour this famous spot than from right here at home? Stretching more than 21,000 kms across the historical northern borders of China this virtual tour will save you a lengthy plane ride – and an even lengthier walk. 

While the wall itself is a historic marvel, the scenic views beyond the wall are equally stunning.

In person, the wall features loose bricks, steep climbs, and sections that are closed for safety. Online, however, the wall is accessible to all. The virtual trek covers the popular route from Jinshanling to Simatai. Click the longitudinal arrows to spin the screen and the latitudinal arrows to view above and below. The large double arrows at either end of the controls let you skip between sections of the wall. Pause on the ‘Winter’ section of the tour for a stunning 360 landscape view. Fasten your slippers everybody and click here for a fantastical adventure:


The Great Wall of China is not the only attraction to offer online access. Zoos are live-streaming their animal enclosures, art galleries and museums have opened their virtual doors, and orchestras, theatres, and dance companies are sharing their performances online with the world.
