Mass tourism at the Great Wall, China

The mid-Autumn Festival and the celebrations for the 63rd Anniversary of the People’s Republic of China gave this year eight days of celebration for the Chinese, 400 million of whom have chosen to use this free time to do domestic tourism and visit the most picturesque and charming turist attraction in the continent. And what else could that be except the Great Wall!

October 8th was the big day as 80 thousand people have literally stormed the section of the Great Wall which is located close to the capital, Beijing. Here are some photos. Hope the wall is really ”Great” to hold them!

Tourism is good but uncontrolled mass tourism is not that fun!
