Lttle Great Wall

If it is Wànli Chángchéng or the long wall of 10,000 Li, otherwise known to everyone else in the world as the Great Wall of China that you are seeking and you are in no way near northern China, perhaps then, you should visit the little Chinese temple, Fu Ling Kung in Pangkor Island, Perak in Malaysia. The Great Wall of China which is one of the seven ancient wonders in the world is but a series of stone and earthen fortifications and had been built, rebuilt, and maintained between the 5th century BC and the 16th century to protect the northern borders of the Chinese Empire from Xiongnu attacks. In Fu Ling Kung, you would not get to see the massive structure which is by far the only man-made structure that can be seen from the moon but then, there is a miniature of this ancient wonder in its manicured garden. Tourists come in vans to visit the little temple but you'd want to rent a motorbike and weave through the narrow roads that formed a maze in the little Chinese settlement where the temple is located. You'd find immense delight in the journey itself!

This is Pangkor Island's, Fu Ling Kung . Would you be able to spot the little Great Wall...

It is indeed bautiful. This is Pangkor Island, not so densely populated like Penang.
