Following accommodations at the epic LEGO house, underwater sub from the Blue Planet II, and Frank Lloyd Wright’s historic Eppstein House, Airbnb is now giving four people and their guests a chance to stay in the iconic Great Wall of China in a newly-launched contest called “Night at the Great Wall.”
What if you could spend a night at one of the greatest architectural feats in human history? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The Great Wall, now on Airbnb. Watch the sun rise and set from your custom bedroom in a watchtower on this world wonder. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For your chance to win a #NightAt the Great Wall, tap the link in our bio.
This first of its kind overnight experience will be accommodated in a custom-designed home situated along the ancient portion of the wall. At sunset, guests will enjoy a multi-course gourmet dinner inspired by various elements of Chinese culture along with traditional Chinese music. The next morning, the travelers will embark on a sunrise hike throughout the countryside and learn about the Great Wall from historians. Other activities also include learning Chinese seal-engraving and calligraphy.
To enter for a chance to win, entrants must explain, “Why is it more important now than ever to break down barriers between cultures? How would you want to build new connections?” The contest closes August 11 by 11:59 p.m. (Beijing time zone/GMT+8), and winners need to be free to travel from September 3-9. Winners will be flown in to Beijing from anywhere in the world.
According to a statement by Airbnb, the point of this contest will showcase the Great Wall to the world and promote sustainable tourism to China by spotlighting wide ranging efforts to preserve the Wall’s deep heritage and bring Chinese culture to life, as the structure is labeled as one of the greatest architectural feats in human history.
