Great walls of China: the Middle Kingdom’s enduring city walls

I love me a Chinese wall! So much so, in fact, that I wrote about the greatest walls in the Middle Kingdom for Lonely Planet – there are more around the country than just the one near Beijing, you know!

There’s something just so epic about an ancient wall, the idea of a city or region defending themselves from marauding hordes hellbent on destruction, the wall the last line of defence against your enemies without…I think I’ve probably been watching too much Game of Thrones, to be honest…
