I loved visiting this section of the wall. I've been to seven separate sections, I think. This is not the favorite of those (because it's hard to name a favorite when I like each section for distinct reasons), but it's well worth a go. To say this is in Tianjin may mislead people a bit. It's in Tianjin Municipality. It's... More

Visited at a quiet time in January and there are a few options to see the wall, Walk up, take a bus and Cable car up and down or cable car up and tobaggon down. Make your choice at the time you are buying your ticket. The visit to the wall is excellent and you can spend as long as... More

Don't even consider going to another section of the Great Wall when visiting Beijing or Tianjin. This is it! Beautiful, well-preserved, restaurants, public toilets, possibility for renting horses. A small market to buy local produce. Take a round starting out at the upper end and arriving to the main entrance - around 70-80 minutes. Remember proper shoes especially when raining.

Everyone has heard of this majestic structure! Why not go and see it? Most of the original wall is in partial ruin, but here and there, the wall has been reconstructed with accuracy and enthusiasm. These are the sections you will be allowed to visit. There is a special shock to the system as you observe this wall following the... More

We took a taxi trip (1000 RMB) to this section of the Great Wall and were not disappointed. 50 rmb admission and barely any tourists. The mountain region resembles Southern California mountain region in some way (dry vegetation). There is a labyrinth structure below that was interested. We probably walked about 500 meters up. Vendors below sell some souvenirs (daggers,... More

We rented a taxi for one day (700 rmb), and left Tianjin city at 8 am to go to the Huangyan pass. The money was well spent. We had a fantastic day and the walk on the great wall was absolutely wonderful even though it was a tough climb! I would definitely recommend a visit and I am glad I... More

The landscape is very beautiful, if you want to go at winter wear warm clothes, because there is really cold, colder than in the city.

Never been to the one in Beijing but was told that this is similar. Yes, indeed. This is not as crowded thus making the walk fantastic. Kept admiring the scenery and how much man-hours/ days/ years taken to complete this GREAT wall. Enjoyed! If you like a walk on the Great Wall but afraid of the pushing crowd, this will... More

This was a nice spot to see the wall. And we were definitely exhausted after our three hour climb up the wall. We didn't hike it all in that time, and even if we had more time, I don't think we would have made it any further out of sheer exhaustion. It wasn't too crowded even though we did go... More

If you are in China, a visit to the Great Wall is a must. Along with the Terracotta Warriors, this are the two things your friends will ask about! I suspect you already know this, but one of the biggest surprises for me was discovering that there is no such thing as 'The Great Wall', instead there are a number... More
