Disappointing. This is a what, like 15 metre stretch of wall, and all that is left of what would have been an impressive ancient city wall. Now you have the ring roads in their place. What a dump.

Not even close to the 5-star Wall north of Beijing. It's old, which gets it the two stars. It is repaired to an almost modern look and small, which makes the significance hard to appreciate. Ideally planned as a pitstop in-between two other destinations. The...More

I visited the Shanghai Old City Walls while touring the Old City to try and get a glimpse of times past in the city. Although the original wall measured about 3 miles long only a small 50-yard section remains. Entrance was fairly cheap, I think...More

Old Town
Shanghai’s original walls live on in the curve of the
streets that serve as the border to the old city. An
aerial view shows a clear circular outline and parts
of the original wall are preserved as monuments to the
ancient past. The main tourist attraction of Yuyuan
(which means Yu garden, though it is often redundantly
referred to as Yuyuan Garden) draws hordes of tourists
every day, but wandering the streets around the
