The Great Wall of China, known to the Chinese as The Long Wall of 10,000 Li (Pinyin: Wànlǐ Chángchéng) is emblematic of China. This UNESCO World Heritage Site has a history which dates back over 2500 years. It is now a major tourist attraction in China with sections of the wall being restored for this purpose - especially near Beijing. The total length of the wall is unknown. Its size, age, complexity and general state of disrepair mean that new sections of wall are still being identified and some sections my yet await discovery. In its last incarnation, during the Ming Dynasty, the wall reached its zenith in building quality and length measuring 5,650 km and crossing 17 provinces in North and Central China.

Chinese blogs are probably the best way of finding out what is happening in China. Major news agencies are often slow to pick up stories or don't cover stories at all. This may be due to censorship, but more often it's due to a bias towards political international news. This leaves you with an image of China that is based only on the Government's and big media publishers. If you want to get down to the street level in China, and find out what real Chinese people are doing and talking about, then you have to read Chinese blogs.
