Commune By The Great Wall - Contemporary Architecture At The Great Wall Of ChinaCommune  
by the Great Wall

Once hailed as the "New Architectural Wonder of China,” Commune by the Great Wall comprises 40 villas with 175 suites and 11 Presidential Suites.

Each villa has a unique structure and theme. From the Bamboo Wall, which offers six bedrooms and a tea room, to the Suitcase House and the Forest House (seen from afar, the Forest House resembles a bird's nest in a tree)

The architectural masterpieces were designed by 12 architects for guests to enjoy.

The great thing for travelers staying at the Commune is it offers a private path to a non-restored section of the Great Wall of China.
