We had a private driver take us from the heart of Tianjin to this segment of the Great Wall, and it was a beautiful ride. The wall and its views were stunning. We were there from about 10:00 am to 1:00 pm on a Wednesday...More

Great historical piece. Fell in love with the Chinese and how they have preserved their history. Very tiring climbing. If you thinking of climbing consider the feeling after climbing. Body pains all over.

We visited this part of the wall with friends and family. Compared to the parts of the wall in Beijing this part is empty. The wall itself looks quite similar (my point of view). From Tianjin it was a short 2h trip.

Our day spent at the Great Wall was absolutely brilliant! It was everything we imagined and more. There are two directions you can choose to hike in, and I believe these actually form a loop for a larger 7-8km hike. We were amazed at the...More

Your best option is to visit that part of the wall, and not any other because of time restrictions and other reason as well. Once you off the cruise ship hire one taxi outside there will be many, make sure to have their... More

from Tianjin downtown to the place, I paid 1400 yuans for two taxis! You have to bargain a little bit.
