If you choose to go left up the wall from the carpark you find the 302 steps of the Skyladder of Huangya. The incline is steep and a great challenge! The return distance is 2.8km and took us 3 hours, its a workout, had 3...More

Great historical piece. Fell in love with the Chinese and how they have preserved their history. Very tiring climbing. If you thinking of climbing consider the feeling after climbing. Body pains all over.

We visited this part of the wall with friends and family. Compared to the parts of the wall in Beijing this part is empty. The wall itself looks quite similar (my point of view). From Tianjin it was a short 2h trip.

The great wall lives up to all the hype. The ramparts closer to Tianjin is totally worth visiting due to it's exclusiveness (most of the tourists visit the wall closer to BJ) and the surroundings. It's a testimony to how human endurance can triumph against...More

Your best option is to visit that part of the wall, and not any other because of time restrictions and other reason as well. Once you off the cruise ship hire one taxi outside there will be many, make sure to have their... More
