Great Wall at Huangya Pass (Huangyaguan Changcheng)

Less known to foreigners, another section of the Great Wall also has a Museum, the Beiji Temple, and Bagua City with the Bagua Labyrinth.

We arrived via cruise ship in Tianjin and decided to visit this part of the wall as we were being escorted into Beijing, and are so glad that we did. It is nearly a 2 hour drive from the port to the wall, which ended up adding about 1 hour of our overall drive to Beijing, but was so worth it. We stopped near the wall and enjoyed eating at a local countryside restaurant where the food is tasty and plenty and very cheap before walking the wall. This section of the wall is not crowded at all and photos of it rival the ones that we took at other areas of the wall. Glad we decided to take this detour on our trip from Tianjin to Beijing!

Tianjin Yinhe Square

Reviewed By cdemma - Melbourne, Australia

The square is a nice place to wander around on a beautiful day. Lovely gardens and water features. If you have more time, there are the city library, the art gallery, the city museum as well as the natural history museum all next to each other. All FREE entry. At night, around 8:20-8:30, there will be a light and sound show on the water. If you love (window)shopping, there is the big shopping mall on the other side of the lake. Plenty of luxurious brands to browse. Cafe shops, genuine and delicious Chinese restaurants are on most levels. Value for money food guaranteed. Even a movie theatre on the top level. Another shopping centre 'Cai Yue City', is full of play grounds for children.
