The city wall (albeit a complete rebuild) is still standing and well worth seeing from one of the ornate gates. You can climb and walk the wall, but once you're on it, it's just a wall. Probably best simply to admire from ground level. The...More

After seing so many walls, Kaifeng city walls are not special, at all. It is just a landmark, but definitely not worth a detour there, on my humble opinion.

There's a pretty good chance that you'll drive through the city wall while touring through Kaifeng on a taxi, but there's no need to really stop and get off.

A really nicely restored wall, similar in many respects to what there is at Xi'an but not so commercialized. It is lovely to walk around it or walk on it, and quite easy to find.
