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. See Laolongtou (Old Dragon's Head) and all Qinhuangdao has to offer by arranging your trip with our Qinhuangdao trip itinerary builder.

  • A few km outside the town of this landscaped park where the fortress (from the Mingtijd). With the taxi a few RMB. Nice idea that this is the beginning of the wall is. There is in the park also added a temple dedicated to the sea goddess. And there is a large complex of soldiers barracks with a kitchen with a cooking pot for 900 man (!)

  • 从停车场到大门到进去,需要走不少路。8月份天气极热,里面阴凉的地方不多,冰棍都卖完了,自动售饮料的机器也跟不上众多的人,饮料不凉。不过价格还不是很贵。里面参观的地方还是值得一去。
