Additional Information


The first pass under the heaven is the Shanhaiguan in Qinhuangdao City. This is the first pass in the east part of the Ming Dynasty Great Wall. In ancient times, the Chinese often said that Guanzhong and Guanwai were bounded by this pass. In Shanhaiguan, the main streets and alleys are preserved as they are. The most striking thing in the city is the Zhenyuan Building in the East Gate. In addition, there are ancient buildings such as Jingbian Building and Wengcheng.
