We had to take a taxi out of the way to the bus station, take the bus, bargain with taxis to take us up to the entrance and back down again to the bus station, BUT.....the experience there was wonderful! It's totally worth it! We had the Wall practically to ourselves. We were able to take all sorts of pictures... More

I liked it, has all the views, and is a part of the Great wall of China. I arrived from the Tianjin Cruise Terminal.. takes about 3 hrs to get there. We got there a little before they closed the gates. The food is very expensive.. cup noodles $10, a plate with rice and your choice of meat is about... More

I was thoroughly happy to have chosen this site. In the month of February, it had little snow also however, it was not a problem. Enjoyed walking up and walking down. As long as you are careful, and cautious, its not bad at all. View from the top is amazing even. Must visit.

This part of the Great Wall is not as crowded as the ones in Beijing. It is about 2 hours drive from the Tianjin city and would recommend anyone who is in tianjin.

My family (husband and two small children 4 and 2) lived in China for 2 years. We visited the Wall in Huangya Pass twice. Once with a visiting family and then the other for the Great Wall Marathon. It is steep and uneven! So watch your step. Any part of the wall is filled with beauty. My kids loved running... More

I've visited this section of the wall quite a few times--I love it. I always take visiting friends and family members to this one and they love it too. Beijing sections are incredibly touristy and crowded, as are the ones in Shanhaiguan/Qinhuangdao. I've never seen crowds here (save for the marathon in May). There are portions of this wall that...

Seeing really is believing and you can't go to China without seeing this. It is absolutely breathtaking and it really will make you marvel at the engineering. How they did it is totally beyond me. When we visited the sun was out and we could see for miles . It was like being on top of the world, a view... More

I been many times in Badalin Great wall in Beijing but every time it seems more turistic to me, you can even find Starbucks.After visiting the Great wall of Tianjin i think that if you can and have how to go its really worth it. It is more real and less turistic, since its not very near from Beijing.

This section of the Great Wall features an adjacent walled settlement which has been well preserved. The Great Wall itself comprises three opportunities for walking. To the left, there is an upward climb along a broad wall that is much like seen in photos. To the right, there is a bridged section across a small river. Beyond that, a steep... More
