A few hours drive north-east of Dalian is the eastern end of the Great Wall of China. If you saw the new movie starring Matt Damon, you will want to see The Great Wall. Easier than a trip to Beijing is the trip from Dalian to Dandong. There's a driver named Autumn who is Chinese and speaks English who will... More

This section of wall has been totally rebuilt in the style of parts of The Great Wall on the basis that they did find some evidence that a wall of some sort once existed there. Nevertheless it is impressive and worth a visit if you are in Dandong. We got a taxi for the local fixed price of 200RMB, which... More

A very peaceful day trip on wonderfully restored section of the Great Wall!! I don't believe the area is promoted too much for tourism because of the proximity to the North Korean border, but it is well worth the effort if you are in that part of China. It is a nice walk but has some very steep sections with... More

Never knew this was here. Not crowded as early AM, which is recommend. The walk is quite hard in places, but saying that we had a 86YO (very fit for his age) do the whole walk. Beautiful views from the top.

The wall is not the best section for visiting - didn't look or feel very authentic but when you get to the last section you can see across the Yalu river to the DPRK and just how close it is at some points. If you have a clear day you can see the towers of Dandong on one side of... More

Authenticity is always an issue with the Great Wall, so we decided not to be bothered by this and go because of the beautiful views and, of course, to visit this magnificent landmark. There are buses going to the wall (4yuan) at the bus station in front of the station (numbers in the 100, 400 and 500's), though the buses... More

This is one of the lesser-frequented sections of the Great Wall, making it much more enjoyable, in my eyes. There are still some groups of tourists that arrive by bus, but they are fewer in number than at the Beijing wall sections, and if you come fairly early you can avoid them altogether. The Wall itself includes some steep sections,... More

I know this is debatable as to any of it's authenticity but still worth the adventure. It's a real workout thought. much steeper than the Beijing version. Coolest part is looking into NK.

This section had few tourists and allowed the opportunity to take in the sites and picturesque views as you climbed the steep ascent to the top of the mountain. The towers and stairs are all in good condition. It may be best to start at the main entrance to climb the wall gradually and avoid the end with the almost... More

I've never been to the Great Wall and don't know if I will get the chance to see other, more photographed parts. But, at least I can say I've been on the Great Wall, and it was nice (although cold) to do it without hoards of tourists to contend with. It was actually pretty deserted except for our and a...
