The city wall (albeit a complete rebuild) is still standing and well worth seeing from one of the ornate gates. You can climb and walk the wall, but once you're on it, it's just a wall. Probably best simply to admire from ground level. The...More

After seing so many walls, Kaifeng city walls are not special, at all. It is just a landmark, but definitely not worth a detour there, on my humble opinion.

Its more beautiful at night. Plenty of place to snack around both at day and night. Also near a market with many interesting stalls.

A really nicely restored wall, similar in many respects to what there is at Xi'an but not so commercialized. It is lovely to walk around it or walk on it, and quite easy to find.

This little city is very different. It has on the surface a combination of different religions more so than other cities in china. It has Buddhism, Taoism, kong zi also. Its only 1 level high as all the dynasties before it have been flooded and...More

The city wall is OK and you can climb up on it in certain places. West Gate for example has a small food museum (all in Chinese) housed in the gate house at the top and an open excavation of the previous gates that have...More
