Actually I'd like to rate this place 3.5 Chongwu "ancient town" is designed to lure the Chinese tourist. It's all based on the "ancient" wall which, though not the Great Wall, is rather impressive in it's length of 2.5km and height of 7m. It was...More

Nice and peaceful surroundings. Beautiful stone sculptures littered the park but certain walkway were badly eroded and damaged. Not a "must see" place if you ask me because I find it rather boring. The stone sculptures are there to showcase the craftsmanship of this town...More

It was a nice family outing to see the place where the Chinese built a wall to defend against the Japanese. Nice and quaint.

If you have some extra time to disperse then stop. Probably not missing much if you don't get by there. A little history lesson is it

We had to walk for a couple of hours, therefore please prepare your walking shoes. Also, please apply sun block and armed yourself with an umbrella. The sun might just burnt your skin.

My extended family and I were based in Chongwu town to visit our ancestral village which was an hour's drive. Thus we visited the AncientTown because it was handy not really expecting much. There's an old semi restored wall, a story to go with it,...More

Reading the other reviews was interesting. All the focus seems to be on the rebuilt wall and the stone park outside. What one needs to do is to walk to the heart of the old town and get lost through the maze of old houses,...More

The walls have been entirely rebuilt rather than simply restored, so the original carvings and historical significance has been lost somewhat. Chongwu is now also very touristy, full of peddlers selling little stone carvings and the like. Save your time and money, and give chongwu...More
