Today, You’re Free for Graffiti Writing on the Mutianyu Great Wall
For years, many tourists from home and abroad get used to carve their words on the buildings of tourist destinations. There is no exception for the Great Wall.
In order to protect the world cultural heritage – the Great Wall, the administration office of Mutianyu had ever arranged routine patrol teams to discourage the tourists from graffiti writing. However, the graffiti problems are never forbidden.
Recently, the office finds out an all-in-one solution to protect it and not ruin tourists’ tour. On the Wall, a designated zone has been set for tourists graffiti writing in the No.14 Watchtower Building. And the office plans to set up other two zones No.5 and No.10 watchtowers for graffiti writing in the future. Besides, an electronic graffiti board is also being considered to install on the Wall. These new graffiti zones will be developed into new scenic spots of Mutianyu, which will attract more visitors.
We believe that all these safeguard procedures will better protect the ancient buildings of Mutianyu in the long run.
