A ‘Wonder’ful Vacation!
By Srinka Datta Roy

All of us like to travel to exotic destinations for memorable vacations. Do you think spending a night at the Great Wall of China would qualify?

The Great Wall of China, one of the Seven Wonders of the World, was built more than 2300 years ago. Such an ancient sentinel, who has witnessed the evolution and intermingling of several cultures over the centuries, will definitely be on the bucket list of any avid traveller!

Airbnb has now made it possible for four lucky people to spend one night at a custom-built room at the Changcheng (‘Great Wall’ in Chinese). All you have to do is pen your thoughts on the importance of breaking down cultural barriers and building new connections.

The four lucky winners of this contest will hike to their ‘accommodation’, enjoy a gourmet dinner that represents the various aspects of Chinese culture (accompanied by a Chinese music concert) and watch the sun rise the next day from the highest watch-tower. They will also get the opportunity to learn Chinese calligraphy!

So get your pen and paper ready and hope that Lady Luck is with you! By the way, if you happen to meet a dragon while you are there, do let me know!
