Laolongtou (Old Dragon's Head), Qinhuangdao

(190+ reviews on the web)
Landmark
Resembling a huge stone dragon drinking from the sea, Laolongtou (Old Dragon's Head) 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. See Laolongtou (Old Dragon's Head) and all Qinhuangdao has to offer by arranging your trip with our Qinhuangdao trip itinerary builder.
