When I was 18 years old, I had an opportunity to visit the Great Wall with my .
That was my best vacation in my life, because my father, my mother, my sister .
and I spent three days together visiting one of the most beautiful places in the world. .
There are several reasons why it was my best vacation. First of all, I like visiting .
historic place and the Great Wall is a historic site. The construction of the Wall first began .
during the Warring States period about 2,500 years ago. Some kingdoms built huge walls .
hoping to protect their territories. When Qin Shihuang or the First Emperor unified China .
in 221 B.C., he decided to have the various sections of the walls linked up and also .
extended. From that we got the Great Wall. The Qin Great Wall hasnÂ¡Â¦t gotten much left .
today. In the subsequent dynasties, the Great Wall was rebuilt many times. The last .
massive rebuilding of the Great Wall was in Ming Dynasty. When I climbed the Great .
Wall and I touched one of the stones, which built the wall, and I felt that I were in that .
time when people built the wall.
Secondly, I like to challenge human limit to climb. The Great Wall meanders from .
east Shanhaiguan to west Jiayuguan for about 6,000 kilometers or 12,000 li, and thatÂ¡Â¦s .
why we call it in Chinese Â¡Â§Wan Li Chang ChengÂ¡Â¨, which literally means Â¡Â§Ten Thousand .
Li Long WallÂ¡Â¨. ThatÂ¡Â¦s why the Great Wall is a perfect place to climb for me.
Moreover, the Great Wall has beautiful view. My sister and I climbed toward the .
highest spot of the Great Wall. It was very steep there and the surface was a little slippery. .
We climbed very carefully and finally we reach the highest spot of the Great Wall, it was .
a fire tower. On the top of the fire towers we can see green mountains roll over one anther. .
Lush trees dot the slopes. A gentle breeze caresses us, and the Great Wall winds its way .
like a giant serpent. That is such a lovely place!.
