Why can China always be called a major Eastern/Oriental country? Other than the vast areas of land, the large number of people is also one of the most important factors. Hoping that the future China’s greatness in the world will no longer have anything to do with population.

Haha, don’t we Chinese love such liveliness? Only with this liveliness can we have a holiday atomsphere!

新浪网友:

Use flesh and blood to cast a New Great Wall.

During the National Day holiday, come to The Great Wall to see the sea, the sea of people!

新浪网友:

With this many tourists and no limiting of them, I’m truly afraid that these ancient walls won’t collapse because of thousands of years of wind and rain but because of being trampled by us modern people.

新浪网友:

Is this to go sightseeing or rushing to the farmer’s market? Faint

新浪网友 yuzhongjian:

All I want to say is: Could you afford collapsing the Great Wall?

新浪网友:

Money, like these streams of people, once again flows into the pockets of the minority [government officials and businessmen].
