Visitors can now legally graffiti on the Great Wall of China
In order to deal with the increasing problem of graffiti on the Great Wall of China, authorities are creating designated graffiti zones. Visitors will soon be able to write on the well-preserved Mutianyu section of the almost 3,000-year-old wall.
The section where you can write on the Great Wall will be on the Number 14 Fighting Tower. One Great Wall administrator said of the plan, "Because many tourists like to carve words on buildings, we will develop the graffiti writing area as a new scenic spot of Mutianyu."
They also have plans to open two more sections of the Wall if this graffiti policy is successful. Chinese authorities have long been struggling with people defacing the Great Wall, and for awhile they talked about installing an electronic graffiti board where people could draw and sign their names digitally.
