Lao Long Tou, Qinhuangdao

4.1
Resembling a huge stone dragon drinking from the sea, Lao Long Tou forms the easternmost part of the Great Wall of China, culminating in a complex of towers and fortifications extending into the Bohai Sea. Admire a vast expanse of water from the 22.4 m (73.5 ft) long stretch of stone wall standing 9.2 m (30.2 ft) above sea level. Per custom, place your hand at the dragon's forehead and make a wish. Stone sculptures of soldiers, cannons, inner courtyards, and archery fields make this spot a special treat for history buffs. You can rent a twin bike or take a horse or camel ride, or simply stroll along the sand beach underneath the fortification. Bring some water with you. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Qinhuangdao holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Lao Long Tou and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • The edge of the wall is said to be 30000 km. Wall jutting out into the sea, in the mountains, not quaint. Is, however, written in addition to continuing the repair did not feel the history. Check carefully the cold this time of year because fewer tourists around was.

  • It's covered with tourists, it costs too much and lacks any feeling of authenticity. By all means go because it is unique, but don't expect to find it magical in any way.
  • 👍👍👍👍👍
  • 由海底連結上岸的長城起點,這技術在古代算是辛苦的工程,這裡還有海灘可以玩水曬日光,旁邊還有一座廟,延伸出海的一座涼亭,這裡還提供水上摩托車
  • Possibly the best place to see the wall. Known as the dragon's head is the beginning or end of the wall. Next to the sea. It has numerous buildings to visit. Although the wall itself has few meters to go, since the pass is usually closed.
