Old Dragon Head (Lǎolóngtóu)

Old Dragon Head (Lǎolóngtóu) Review

Legend has it that the Great Wall once extended into the Bohai Sea, ending with a giant carved dragon's head. Although the structure you see today was rebuilt in the 1980s, witnessing the waves smash against the massive base is a stirring sight. The admission price gets you into several rebuilt Ming Dynasty naval barracks, but you can just skip it altogether and head on to the beach for the best photo ops.
