Welcome to Chóngwǔ

The town wall was built by the Ming government as a frontline defence against marauding Japanese pirates, and it has survived the past 600 years remarkably well. You can also walk along the top of the wall at some points.

If your interest here is solely architectural, enter the old town through a narrow gate roughly 200m before the ticketed entrance. From there you can weave your way past intact 14th-century houses and up towards the wall.
