Great place to visit and it wasn't very crowded. Love the history of the place. When we went there was a band set up in the courtyard so we had nice background music.

Which were cool. But I just saw the city walls of Chester and York in England 4 months ago, so these were a little anti climactic. It was cool that they had two walls between which they trapped people and shot them like sitting ducks....More

I was disappointed by how few things there are to really see in Jingzhou. I was only here 24 hours, but still expected a bit more than there is and most of the sites listed seem to be closed. The city walls and gates are...More
