Laolongtou (Old Dragon's Head), Qinhuangdao

(4.1/5 based on 190+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Get to the beginning of the great wall of China from Qinhuangdao Beidaihe or simple. Show a piece of maps from Google and a couple of pics and here you're going sightseeing without guides. The same taxi driver can wait you out there an hour and a half. Just switch off your computer. Next to a bunch of souvenir shops and local edalen. To see all of you quite enough one and a half hours.

  • This is end of the Great Wall, place must see if you're travelling to the northern part of China. After this, then go to the beginning of the Great Wall at Ginsu.  more »
