Best preserved city wall in southern China
Oct 2019
Stopped at Jingzhou Historical Park. In the center of town to see the ancient city wall. There is about 8 miles of city wall to walk on. You can climb to the top of the East Gate Watch Tower to get a view of the city. The walkway is in very good condition. This city was the cradle of the Chu Culture. There are statues along the walk to photograph or to use in a selfie. There are tables around if you brought a lunch. There are small rental boats on the far side of the park. There is no entry fee for the park.

Nice area, but wall not so impressive
Sep 2019
We came down in boats to the area, and we walked around part of the wall. Neither the wall itself nor the views were as good as in Xian. But it was all pleasant enough. Not a highpoint.

Use a golf cart with driver for a quick and thorough view of the old city.
Feb 2019 • Family
We used a golf cart with driver to get around the city b3cause we had little time. But it was very cold in February so be prepared. In warm weather there is a great walking path all around the old city. Could easily spend a whole day just hiking around.

A beautiful park space with lots of history!
May 2018 • Couples
We arrived at the area walking through a park and over various lovely bridges to then arrive at a spot where golf carts drove us to another section of the park where it looked like they were setting up for a jousting match. We then arrived at the massive city wall and walked up the street to the main entrance. There are lots of stores in the area so souvenir shopping is an option. The place was packed, but it was well worth the climb up the steep ramp/stairs to see the view of the water and City. It also looked like there was a show that was starting but regrettably, we had to go. Very worthwhile spot to explore if you are in this area.

Awesome well-preserved, ancient Jingzhou city wall & beautiful architecture
Sep 2017 • Friends
We enjoyed standing and walking in the ancient city wall, and the views of the city from the wall. I believe that there are three historical ancient city wall sections for the Water City, Brick City and Earth City. The wall has a total length of about 10.5 kilometres and a mean height of 8.8 metres. The original wall was build during the East Han Dynasty (25AD-220AD), and over the years and the Song, Yuan, Ming, and Qing dynasties were repaired and finally, present day wall was rebuilt in the early years of the Qing Dynasty.

I like these ancient city walls. I have walked on them in Nanjing and Xi’an. The Nanjing ancient wall is 35 kilometres long, and its height varies between 14 and 21 metres. The Xi’an ancient wall is 13.7 kilometres long, with a mean height of 12 metres.

Of China’s seven ancient walled cities, Jingzhou’s is considered to be among the top three.

During our tour we also saw the awesome 58 metre high statue of the God of War - Guan Yu Statue (aka, the Protector of Buddhism). It has a weight of 1,320 tons.

After our walk on the city wall and tour, we went to a local restaurant to enjoy some Jingzhou cuisine.

Interesting historical city
Nov 2017 • Friends
The city walls were rebuilt during the Ming & Qing dynasty and it’s very well preserved. Only had an hour to spend here. Hence only managed to visit the East Gate, where there’s a replica model of the entire city. The guide which we hired at the ticketing booth done a good job in explaining the history of the city. I believe it’s quite an interesting ancient city to visit.

Worth a visit
Sep 2017 • Solo
The wall is well maintained and a major tourist attraction. Visiting the towers is worthwhile. The view from the wall over the park is good. The walk through the park to the city wall is worth doing in itself.

Quite a big compound. Worth visiting a day or 2. Great if you are a fan of the 3Kingdoms Guanyu.
Sep 2017 • Friends
Interesting ancient wall for those who are into 3 Kingdoms or have never seen one before, but certainly not as magnificent as some of the other walls I been to. I liked the place and definitely enjoyed the trip though it is one of those place that you only want to go once.

We took the buggy ride which goes around the circumference of the wall. Note that you NEED to tell them where you wish to drop off for a quick photo taking session, or that you can actually hold on to your ticket until the next ride comes about. We didn't know so we missed out quite a few places. The driver is nice enough to arrange for us another round when we returned to base though.

You get to visit Guanyu's previous residence as well as Xuanmiao, an ancient temple with beautiful courtyard and garden. There is also a gigantic Guanyu statue just within walking distance, the buggy ride goes through there too. We arrived late on a Sunday and the museum was closed on Monday. Such a pity.

Not much crowd during September. Good period to visit China.
