Airbnb offering bedroom at Great Wall of China, but there's a catch

The Great Wall of China receives an average of more than 27,000 visitors every single day. And this fall, eight lucky people will win a night at the Great Wall with 13,000 miles of history all to themselves.

In an effort to raise awareness for heritage site protection and cultural exchange, Airbnb is partnering with the Beijing Tourism Development Committee to host the first-ever overnight stays at the modern world wonder.

Four people and their guests will get the Great Wall of China all to themselves for one night each from Sept. 4-7. 

To win the unique Airbnb experience, contestants must write in 550 characters or less why they consider it important to break down barriers between cultures and how they would use their time at the Great Wall to build new connections. Winners will be chosen based on originality, creativity, and how well they answered the question.

In addition to the unique accommodation inside the ancient portion of the wall (and bragging rights forever), each stay includes a sunset dinner along the wall, a classical music concert and a calligraphy lesson. Winners will also take a hike through China’s countryside and learn about the history of the Great Wall from the site’s official historian.
