Jiangnan Great Wall, Linhai

(85 reviews on the web)
Ruin Tourist Spot
Though not nearly the size of the enormous Great Wall of China, Jiangnan Great Wall impresses in its own right, displaying exemplary craftsmanship and an intriguing history. Built to protect the city from invasion and flooding, the wall was originally 6,000 m (19,685 ft) in length, and still has 5,000 m (16,400 ft) preserved and walkable today. Along the wall, you'll come across ancient artilleries used by national hero Zheng Chenggong, inscriptions carved on a cliff side by Qing emperor Yongzheng, and plenty more interesting attractions. Bring along plenty of water for your hike, and make sure you wear comfortable shoes. Add Jiangnan Great Wall and other attractions to your Linhai trip itinerary using our Linhai tourist route planner.
