Must See Second Life Destinations: The Great Wall of China

The Great Wall of China is a series of fortifications built across the historical northern borders of China. The wall was built primarily to protect China from invasions from various nomadic groups. and as a tariff barrier and transportation corridor. The wall was built over a period of over 2,000 years in different stages, and were eventually unified, to a length of over 5,500 miles or 8,800 kilometers. It is by far the largest manmade structure ever built, and awe inspiring to see.

The real Great Wall outside of Beijing

A very good simulation of The Great Wall is located on Sichuan Island, part of a four-sim build containing both Japanese and Chinese structures. The build itself is very good, and can be walked up and down winding mountains just like the real wall.
