The Hunt For Views – Adventures & Guides

One of the seven wonders of the world, China’s greatest engineering triumph and an essential part of any trip to China; the Great Wall dates back over 2,000 years in places and stretches some 21,196km across northern China. For many, hiking the Wall is a dream. For those who have the opportunity to visit the Wall, it’s likely a once in a lifetime trip and you want to do it right.

Scrolling through Instagram, there are thousands of photos of people on the Wall surrounded by coach loads of tourists. This is mainly due to some sections of the Wall, close to Beijing, being completely rebuilt in the 50’s and 80’s, losing a lot of their original characteristics in exchange for becoming easily accessible tourist hotspots.

If, like us, you want your experience of visiting the Great Wall to feel authentic then this is the guide for you. We have spent weeks researching and then exploring the Wall to come up with, what we believe to be, the best overall experience for hiking the Great Wall of China.

Shanghai; where Western culture meets Chinese tradition, space age skyscrapers tower above Buddhist temples, and a City that over 24 million people call home.

With ever expanding international and regional transport links, Shanghai is the perfect place to start or end any adventure to China, but planning a trip to such a mammoth, manic place can be intimidating.

We spent a lot of time researching and reading about what to do in Shanghai and, combining this with our first hand experience of the City, we have put together our top travel tips when visiting Shanghai.
