  • This was our second visit to the Great Wall (the first at Jinshanling ten years ago) and I thought it would be the same level of exertion. However, I was surprised how puffed I was even though I'm fit...  more »
  • Place in the middle of the mountains almost lost. The wall is clearly a reconstruction, true, but not original. Super challenging ahead, endless staircases from the steps. Pseudo monks who ask for money all the time. In conclusion is a Disney in Chinese format

Where to stay in Tianjin

The large city of Tianjin has more than enough accommodations to cater to the different tastes of its visitors. Just take a look at the central districts of Hedong, Hebei, and Hexi. Towering over the central area, an abundance of high-rise hotels offer rooms and facilities both budget and upmarket, and convenient access to the main transport hubs, shops, and sights. If you're planning on staying in town for a while, consider renting an apartment in one of the more residential districts further out.
