Sights

The walled section of Jīngzhōu is approximately 3.5km from east to west and 2.5km from north to south, with impressive city gates at each cardinal point, as well as several lesser gates. Passing through the wall at New East Gate (新东门; Xīn Dōngmén), which you will do if you’re on the bus from the main stations, you’ll have Jingzhou Nanlu (荆州南路) stretching out in front of you, and you’ll see the older East Gate (老东门; Lǎo Dōngmén) off to your right. Zhangjuzheng Jie (张居正街) leads away from East Gate and runs parallel to Jingzhou Nanlu.
