Star Cruise meets China's Great Wall

13th May 2013

Tom Cruise mixed business with pleasure as he visited the Great Wall of China, one of the world's most beloved cultural sites with holidaymakers on group tours.

The wall is rightly considered one of the Seven Wonders of the World, attracting 10 million tourists every year.

It is a series of fortifications comprising brick, wood, stone and other materials across China's northern borders.

Work began on it as early as the 7th century BC and it retains its charm, wonder and magnificence to this day.

Actor Cruise, 50, is almost as equally adored in China to the extent its government even declared October 10 Tom Cruise Day in 2006.

The War Of The Worlds star was in Beijing to promote his new futuristic sci-fi movie Oblivion, which opened at Chinese cinemas on May 10.

Cruise plays former-Marine Commander Jack Harper, one of the few remaining drone repairmen stationed on Earth since its destruction 60 years earlier.
