AIRBNB, an online short-term apartment renting platform, recently announced a contest in which four people and their guests would be able to sleep for a night on the Great Wall. China Youth Daily comments:

Airbnb's announced plan would have allowed the four groups to sleep in a custom-designed "home" set in one of the Great Wall's towers.

The incident aroused wide public discussions about the possible damage that might be done to the Great Wall, which is a UNESCO World Heritage site and cultural relic protected by law. As a response, Airbnb said they had got support from the local government as well as the tourism authorities of Beijing municipality and its Yanqing district.
