Covering an impressive 600 kilometres, stretching out from the city of Jinan to the area of Qingdao, the Great Wall of Qi is by far the oldest Great Wall of China that was constructed in 685 BC. For those of you planning a holiday in the area, staying at a Qingdao hotel would be advisable. The Copthorne Hotel Qingdao which comes across as a hotel in Qingdao will serves as an ideal place from where you can visit this iconic structure.
The wall was built by the governors of Qi to fend off its neighbouring states of Lu and Jin from invading its premises. The wall which ran alongside Taishan Mountain was later destroyed but a greater proportion of its remnants are still visible when touring Shandong Province. Modern ideas have led to the present day regime transforming the entrance to the wall into a popular tourist getaway.
