A trip to the Great Wall of China may not be in the cards for you any time soon. While that’s kind of a bummer, there is a bit of a salve out there. You can take a virtual tour.

Travel website The China Guide is offering a virtual tour of the wonder of the world on its website. The site gives you a panoramic view of the wall from several different positions along its nearly 3,000 miles. You can also ask for a virtual guide. Those interested can choose between a shared Zoom tour that costs $10, or you can opt for a private Zoom tour that retails for $50. To request a tour, you only need to enter your name, e-mail, and a time.

But the Great Wall is not the only tour. You can also take one of Guilin and Yangshuo, the verdant area of China that’s also a popular tourist destination. If you want even more, you have the option to pay $5 for access to even more tours.

While a vacation to China might not be feasible, you can still tour some of the prettiest areas of the country.
