China’s greatest engineering triumph and must-see in China, the Great Wall stretches over 21,000km of land starting from the Manchurian ruins in Liaoning province and ending at Jiayuguan Pass in Gansu province. The most robust and most visited section of the Great Wall is located in Beijing and is actually rather steep making it more of a climb rather than a walk. If you’re too tired from your climb up to climb down, you can always ride the luge down.

6. Go ice fishing in Korea

Despite the biting cold there’s still a hive of activity around some lakes where ice fishing festivals are held. Visitors fish from a hole in the ice or catch the fish with their bare hands! And then devour their catch sashimi style.
