0:25Okay, what the fuck. No army is even going to come within ten miles of cliff-topped mnnutaios like that and any random barbarians that actually manage to climb that shit would be so few in number that they wouldn't even be worth the tower built to keep them out.And even the rest of the wall only kept unorganized tribes from making assaults. It didn't seem to bother the Mongols much. The Great Fail of China

1- last weekk we passed by private bus through the tunnel, so it's fuctional, and worth passing through.
2- It's good to let the readers know that Metro line 2 is already functioning, and that all the station names are written both in english and chinese, so there's no way they can get lost.
I advise you update this info, and thank you to the great details you have in your page.
