City Wall
Dec 2019
We went to what we thought was the end of the wall but a local pointed out that there is a little walk and you're back up on the wall. The local also took us for a stroll through the old area pointing out things of interest. Thank-you. We enjoyed the wall view, day and night.We went here because my child wanted to see "a wall", and after some research I found this one between Hong Kong and Yangshuo by fast train. While researching I discovered that it looked like a nice area to stop with enough stuff to keep us interested around town. I was right.

Great example of wooden tower (Piyun)
Oct 2019
I was interested in primarily looking at the tower construction. The posts are set upon stone or concrete plinths and held by friction like pretty much all of these wooden structures. The Dougong or wooden bracket system are huge and allow the lateral forces to focus onto the beams for earthquake resistance. Unfortunately the building appeared to be locked though I could hear voices inside so you can't go inside it seems. Toilets are just past the tower. There are some bilingual signs near the Piyun tower. We just took a #2 bus from our fairly new hotel which was near the lake.

Nice old city wall
Oct 2019 • Couples
- no entrance fee
- kind of square:
- north section 100% open with tower and gate
- east section 100% open but completely implemented in the houses around (no wall feeling)
- south section 20% open
- west section 80% open

I recommend to just visit the north section, the rest is not worth the time - but the north is nice.
However, if you been on the Xian city wall, you going to be disappointed :)

Well preserved wall in Zhaoqing
Jan 2018
This is a mostly well preserved old wall around what used to be Zhaoqing city. You can walk along most of it and look down onto old houses and narrow streets. I particularly liked this area because most cities in China have got rid of old areas like this. The wall is great and worth walking round and it's also worth wandering along the old streets in this area to get a glimpse into the past. The wall is close to the centre of Zhaoqing so easy to get to and no admission fee.

Historic wall that protected the city
Dec 2013 • Friends
This wall dates from the Song Dynasty, it is safe to climb and gives an idea of how the city could be defended.

Locals live within the walls and on top on the city side. On the other side of the road is the current city of Zhaoqing.

Worth an hour or so... there is no admission fee although you may be tempted by the street food sold by the vendors at top of the wall.

Nice fortification
Dec 2012 • Family
Nice fortification with small charming streets inside. Temples also at two corners but I do not believe we can visit them.
