This part of the wall is definitely unique but all of it has been rebuilt. Honestly, there is not a lot to see and price of admission is a bit high compared to other sections at 80 rmb. If you are I. The area it is worth it but I would not make a special trip.

It is always fascinating to learn about Chinese history and culture so I was excited to see this section of The Great Wall because it literally starts in the water. The view is amazing. I was disappointed to find out that it is only a recreation of the original structure. Our guide let us know that they attempted to use... More

This section of the Great Wall may not be as well know as say the one at Badaling but it is just as dramatic. Laolongtou is at the extreme eastern end of the Great Wall, the place where the Great Wall meets the Yellow Sea. To the builders of the Great Wall, it must have been the world's end. The... More

This is a very nice spot to visit. The wall is in good shape, nicely renovated and it is a wonderful idea to know that this wall is going on into the mainland of China for about 6000 km!

Took the fast D trains from Beijing, relatively inexpensive though you have to book a couple of days in advance unless you want to stand, got to Shanhaiguan directly and without any trouble. Walked out of the train station, past desperate unofficial taxi drivers and on to the main road where we hailed a cab which took us there, 15... More

Maybe I hyped this up in my head, but what I was expecting and what I saw were nowhere near close to one another. Very crowded too. Kids were bombarded by Chinese wanting to touch them, to pick them up, to pass them around--that didn't go over so well. I guess I thought this would be super awesome awe inspiring... More

This is the only place where you can see both the sea and the great wall. The view is not as impressive as other Great Wall locations (Badaling,Mutianyu, etc) but is still worth a trip. Visited Jun 2009.

A beautifully unique part of the wall and a must-see if you are in the area. Be aware that it will be very crowded at times, especially by the tip where it juts out into the sea. Random ship seemingly beached itself by the end of the wall, but I found this more interesting than irksome and I'm sure it'll... More

This park is really well done with the living quarters and weapons used under display. It is really interesting to see the Old China (Great Wall) end in a very New China (industrialized Port with tankers lined up at sea. We did this as a Day trip from Beijing. Very doable with the fast D-trains, Left Beijing at 10AM got... More
