All of you surely know Great Wall in Beijing China, but how many of you know The Wall has several sections and what they are called? Hope the below info could help you. Anyway, we present Mutianyu Section 慕田裕长城 this time. . 🇨🇳INFORMATION🇨🇳 Besides Mutianyu, we have Badaling, Jinshanlin. They are open for tourists officially, while Huanghuacheng and Jiankou are not. In fact, they are more sections, the above mentioned are just those most famous. Several walls were being built as early as the 7th century BC; these, later joined together and made bigger and stronger, are now collectively referred to as the Great Wall. Especially famous is the wall built 220–206 BC by Qin Shihuang 秦始皇, the first Emperor of China. Little of that wall remains. Since then, Great Wall has on and off been rebuilt, maintained and enhanced; the majority of the existing wall is from Ming Dynasty. Great Wall stretches from Dandong in the east, to Lop Lake in the west, along an arc that roughly delineates the southern edge of Inner Mongolia. A comprehensive archaeological survey, using advanced technologies, has concluded that the Ming walls measure 8,850 kilometres. This is made up of 6,259 kilometres sections of actual wall, 359 kilometres of trenches and 2,232 kilometres of natural defensive barriers such as hills and rivers. Another archaeological survey found that the entire wall with all of its branches measure out to be 21,196 kilometres. ⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊ 📍Photo credit: @travelentines 📍Selected by: @linas_travelphotography ⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊ #LOVES_CHINA #china🇨🇳 #chinalife #ig_china #igerschina #instachina #chinatravel #travelchina #visitchina #discoverchina #mychinagram #长城 #greatwall #mutianyu #beijing #北京 #greatwallofchina #instabeijing #beijinglife #shanghai #chengdu #chongqing #suzhou #hangzhou #xian #guangzhou #zhangjiajie #naturelovers #landscapelovers #travelentines_lc ⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊

Let's teach you how to know where the photo could be taken. First, it must be somewhere South of Yantze River. Second, it could be Shanghai. Why?! Read below! (PS. Forget there are only modern skyscrapers in Shanghai, many old quarters still looks so. This is actually people's real daily life in China!) . Historically, during planning economy's time, south of Yangtze River in China was not allowed to get central heating from 15 Nov to 15 March, while north of the River had. At winter time, indoor and outdoor temperature was almost same, often it is warmer outdoors at daytime. You can see it is winter from the bicycle guy but windows were totally open. Furthermore, hanging clothes in this way has always been an old tradition in Shanghai. BTW, those electrical cables are called black spaghetti, a very common view in many countries in Asia. . 🇨🇳INFORMATION🇨🇳 Shanghai is the most populous city proper in the world, with a population of almost near 25 millions already 2017. . While Beijing is China's capital with much of Chinese culture and historical monuments, Shanghai is China's Financial Centre with much influence from Western since old time, which you can see from all buildings at the Bund. . As one of the four direct-controlled municipalities of China, it is a global financial centre and transport hub, with the world's busiest container port, located in the Yangtze River Delta in East China, Shanghai sits on the south edge of the mouth of Yangtze River in the middle portion of East Chinese coast. . The municipality borders the provinces of Jiangsu and Zhejiang to the north, south and west and is bounded to the east by East China Sea. ⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊ 📍Photo credit: @shuo_cheng 📍Selected by: @linas_travelphotography ⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊ #LOVES_CHINA #china🇨🇳 #chinalife #ig_china #igerschina #instachina #chinatravel #travelchina #visitchina #discoverchina #shanghailife #zaishanghai #shanghaiist #thebund #pudong #上海 #shanghai #streetshot #streetphotography #streetview #cityview #suzhou #hangzhou #nanjing #chengdu #chongqing #shenzhen #guangzhou #beijing #shuo_cheng_lc ⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊⚊
