I’m a kind of confused about the difference between Shanghaiguan and Laolongtou(Old Dragon’s Head). They are both in Beidaihe. I’m planning to take a tour to Shanghaiguan Great Wall. Any suggestion for this?

Name:Re: Shanghaiguan Great Wall Tour

Shanghaiguan Great Wall refers to the whole Pass part, while Laolongtou (Old Dragon’s Head) is the part that meets the sea. Actually, they are the same section of the Great Wall. It’s convenient for you to take a Shanhaiguan Great Wall Tour from Beijing via fast trains. After arrival to Beidaihe, there are shuttle buses to Shanhaiguan. If you need private tour, we can help you to arrange one and reserve the train tickets.
