                                        Although has a number of ancient walls from in to , is considered by many to still be a very rewarding site. What perhaps makes this wall intersting is its view. In 2010 the (then) Mayor decided to rebuild ancient Datong, and as a result knocked down many of the residency that lie within the wall limits. Now, from the wall one can see the fusion of a modern city; dilapidated and destroyed houses, beautiful green parks, and towering apartment blocks, all lay together to form a cacophony of chaos and curiosity, of sadness and beauty.

                                        Top Tips

                                        This wall is free to climb as long as you have ID (a passport if you aren’t a Chinese national).
                                        Once on the wall, it is wide and long enough that you can rent a bicycle (or pay for a tourist bus) to traverse it.
                                        Many seem to enjoy the wall more when it is lit up at night.
