After visiting most other Great Wall places in the country I consider this as a logical completion of the Great Wall tour.

Daughter's desire to see where the wall went in to the ocean. Very look to visit. However the day we visited although sunny was bitterly cold.

If you're in Beijing, its not worth coming to Laolongtou just for this. If you've seen the wall already, then this won't look any different really. But if you're in the area already, why not? Its on a nice beach, in a nice area, and...More

I was completely stunned (in a good way), by how well-kept and beautiful this park/fort/monument was. A great way to visit the Wall.

Overpriced and really nothing much! Total waste of time. Period. Situated outside beidaihe, nearer to Qinhuangdao. But close to other attractions like MengJiangNu Temple.
