A lot of reviews have been written on the south gate and city walls but I would like to review the shops especially those looking for Chinese handicraft and painting . Before the main entrance to the south gate on Nai south road , there are many shops selling handicraft and paintings. I bought a set of 4 Chinese scrolls... More

Our guide added this to our trip and we were very pleasantly surprised. We would have loved to have rented a bicycle and travelled the whole wall but we did not have time. It was a very pleasant walk and a great vantage point to view the city.

We had only half an hour to spend at this excellent attraction. It deserved more. If you arrive at the main courtyard/killing ground, there are bikes for hire - including yellow tandems. A lovely way to spend an evening.

When you see the size and depth of the city wall it will make your jaw drop. When you try to imagine the labor force to took to surround the city with this wall it will boggle the mind

We went there during rain on an evening so we didn't op for bicycle rides. The information centre told us that during rainy day the lights up the wall will not be lighten at all. Therefore we went on foot unfortunately we barely make it to the next gate because of wet and dark condition. I personally felt that going... More

The City Wall measures two miles on each side (8 total) and is wide enough to rent a bicycle and get in a great workout.
