NIGHT AT THE GREAT WALL
Airbnb is offering up a one night stay at the most exclusive location on the globe — The Great Wall of China. Although it's packed daily with thousands of tourists, no one has ever spent the night at the ancient landmark. To become the first, enter their contest with an essay describing why it is more important now than ever to break down barriers between cultures in 550 characters or less. Winners will sleep in a custom built bedroom inside one of the wall's towers. The open-air room offers unobstructed views of the surrounding landscape and the stars above. The experience also includes a sunset gourmet dinner inspired by Chinese culture, a sunrise hike, and a calligraphy lesson. House rules are as follows: Respect all 1.38 billion neighbors, do not disturb the ancient wall guards, and be sure to report any and all dragon sightings.
