Which were cool. But I just saw the city walls of Chester and York in England 4 months ago, so these were a little anti climactic. It was cool that they had two walls between which they trapped people and shot them like sitting ducks. If you're there, go have a look.

I was disappointed by how few things there are to really see in Jingzhou. I was only here 24 hours, but still expected a bit more than there is and most of the sites listed seem to be closed. The city walls and gates are the best things to see and in the evening, around the gates, the locals come... More

After our stop at the Jingzhou museum, our guide took us to the Old City Wall. Around the grounds there are life sized figures of soldiers and inside the building there is a scale model of the town behind the walls. From about 30 feet up on the battlements you have views of the surrounding area. We only spent between... More

Obviously Jingzhou was a key city in China during centuries before and after Han Dynasty. The City Wall and its gates are the main civil and military things remaining in Jingzhou out of temples. No more ancient houses and typical streets like in Pingyao, Suzhou etc... It is possible to visit the large gate of Dongmen and to get on... More

Jingzhou is a quite beautiful ancient city and is surrounded by river. We visited the city in spring when numerous Sakura bloomed beautifully. The best way to appreciate the scenenary is joining buggy tour around the city.

The wall and the East Gate are very well preserved, and the watch tower is now a museum with interesting exhibits. If you have time, it would be fun to walk further around the wall.

The city wall is not as impressive as the one in Xian, but it is very interesting and quite cheap to access. The wall has many gates and towers which you can clamber over, its surrounded by a moat and makes for great photo opportunities, I really loved walking around in the sunshine imaging what it must have been like...

We visited Jingzhou , the second largest Hubei city near Yangzi River .It is a cultural and historical city with over 6.5 million inhabitants. There are 5 ancient tower gates with walls in Jingzhou. 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
