For a 10 Yuan entry fee, you get to see the 9 dragon wall on its own in a yard, which gives great perspective to how big it is, you can spend time taking in the detail. We went in winter and had the place...More

It's just a wall. It's cool to check out if it's along the way or if you've nothing to do. But it's just a wall with some dragons and you go take some selfies. Nothing else! No history behind it that I could read or...More

The screen itself has tons of history but there's nothing much else around it. It's a nice pit-stop but def. not a major attraction. If you don't have time, would skip it.

This is not worth for paying the fee. All you can see after entrance is a wall with nine decorated dragons on it.

It’s beautiful but honestly not a place that you must have to visit. Only if you have time. Very hidden place . There is a little fee to enter.

This is a place you stop by if you are in the area (then I will recommend it), but not worth a long drive if Chinese Dragons and their history are not important to you. This is an important Chinese historical place (if I remember...More

I am not sure how important this place would be on your itinerary. Basically the 13th son of the first emperor of the Ming Dynasty (Zhu Yuanzhang) wanted to outdo his brother with a serious case of sibling rivalry. His brother already had one built....More
