Inspirock Rating:
4.1/5 based on 180+ 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.
