China is probably best known for the Great Wall of China. The wall was started in 771 BC and took hundreds of years to complete. The Great Wall of China was built as fortification.
Eco-tourism is starting to take off in China. The China National Tourism Administration(CNTA) designated 2009 as the Chinese Ecotourism year. Hopefully this means CNTA is moving in the right direction. There is a move to push tourism industry in china towards nature and coexisting with local communities. Sustainable Travel International has been working in China to promote tourism in a sustainable way.
The government of China has taken steps to prevent the destruction of natural preserves. The government is doing this via education, as well as limiting the number of trails and access points in these places.
