  • People's Park on Saturday

    by joelaldodiaz Written Jun 20, 2006

    Two words: Music Orgy. ON Saturdays, the park is crowded, which is great for people watching. All sorts of traditional chinese music is sung, played, and danced to. Some songs are about Mao, others r truly authentic traditional chinese folk songs. The park itself is...well...a diamond in the rough. You can ride a 30 second rollercoaster for 50 yuan.

    Shang Dynasty Walls

    This is something to do if you have a lot of time or you are really fasinated by ancient ruins. These walls really are over 3000 years old. And they really just look like a pile of dirt now. The dirt once was the walls of the city here, but now are mostly useful as a nice park.

    They are located about a kilometer or two east of the train station. The walls run along Chengnan Lu and Chengdong Lu. For the moment bus 85 gets you there from the train station or Erqi Ta.

    Another 'People's Park'

    China is filled with places called the People's Park. I doubt this is a highly unique one, but it does show case the cities trees.

    The park is a strange mix of Chinese garden and amusment center. You can switch from pastoral peace to over-developement in about ten steps. If you would like to relax for an afternoon in this town this is a good place to do it.

    The park takes up a chunk of land on the southwest corner of Erqi Lu and Jinshui Lu, about a kilometer north of Erqi Ta or the trainstation.
