    Shanhaiguan Things to Do

    While 40 yuan will get you admission into Shanhaiguan, it also allows you to visit the Great Wall Musuem, a good (by Chinese standards) museum that has less propoganda than you might expect. The museum has maps, models, videos, and exhibits on the Great Wall as well as various portions of Chinese history. There is still a fair share of writing...

  • Walking the Wall

    Shanhaiguan Things to Do

    You want to escape the crowds at the First Pass under Heaven? It's not as hard as you think. Though legal areas of the wall that you can walk on are few, you can still head just a few hundred meters out of your way to interesting places where you'll be accompanied by only a few other places. A good place to do this is Linlu Tower. As soon as you...

  • Inside the Arrow Tower

    Shanhaiguan Things to Do

    Walking up the Great Wall to the Arrow Tower is included in your 50 yuan admission fee, but entering and climbing the Tower is not; fortunately, it's only 2 yuan more. The tower provides a good view of the area, but that's not saying much; Shanhaiguan is an industrialized city, and most of what you'll be seeing are apartment complexes, factories,...

    Chengde Restaurants

    I came here on the only evening I spent in Chengde and wasn't disappointed. This restaurant is located just over a bridge near the city centre. There are several large rooms to eat in upstairs. There's plenty of staff on hand as well. The food is good and plentiful, (I had tons of food - enough rice for 3 people)! I don't think they had any English...

Since it's a tourist place, some restaurants will do all they can to extract additional pennies from you.I had a breakfast at one of the small restaurants and the noodle (with preserved vegetables & some meat) costs RMB 20 and it is NOT at all tasty (too bland). A portion of bun (baozi) costs RMB 20...

Later the fortifications were strengthend by brickwalls (1570).There are only 2 mayor gates: the Eastern and the Western Gate, which are still the main entrances to the city.
