They were built for military purposes and protection during the Three Kingdoms era. Some towers and walls, were rebuilt and restored during the Ming and Qing... More

Not as big as the city wall in Xian but this ancient city wall was very well-preserved, completed with a moat around. Walking along the top of the wall was certainly scenic and interesting. We only had time to cover a small portion of it but found it to be worth the hour there.

We caught a D-class train (¥60, 90mins) from Wuhan to Jingzhou in November 2015. When you arrive at the train station (which is right next to the bus station) you can either catch bus 49 (¥2) to the East Gate or you can do the very easy 2.5km walk. The walls are well maintained and the gates are impressive. The... More

We visited this rebuild and well preserved old wall and watchtower. The wall of 10k dates back to the Qing Dynasty. It was destroyed and rebuilt several times. Now the wall offers a panoramic view over the river and an opportunity to go even higher in the watchtower. Well worth a stop.

This city has preserved and restored its city walls and towers and provides an impression of its early origins. It is a tourist attraction and shops and local tradespeople are close by the wall and towers. This is not too intrusive and the walls can be enjoyed with views all around the city. It is worth visiting for its walls... More

We loved visiting the Historical district. So much to see - so much history to enjoy. I would recommend a tour through the city if you are able to do so. Well worth the time.

While Beijing tore down its city wall in the 1950s to make way for ring roads, Jingzhou still has nearly ten kilometres of wall dating back to the mid-1600s. The section we visited was well maintained, with a watchtower you can climb. Inside is a model showing what the old walled city would have looked like. The wall is about... More

The "golf cart" or the tour buggy will be the most convenience mode of transport to view the ancient city. Located right outside the Jingzhou Museum and the price is RMB30 per pax. Minimum 2 pax to go . Did asked for English language tour but sadly none. Therefore the tour blasted away with recorded stern voice in Mandarin. Tip-... More

We had about an hour to spare, and took the golf cart ride around the city wall. We were there right before the Dragon Boat Festival, so we got to watch the dragon boats practicing. We also stopped at the shrine to Guan Yu. It was a super way to see the city gate and surrounding area.
