ok, if you do not like to walk this is not for you. The name says it already: it is a *big* park, in fact it was the (?) greatest palace ever built in history: 4km². On the... read more

Do not spend time going to the park, there is nothing special except the building in front of it. The building is not even old, it was build a few years ago. Do not take train, it takes one hour and you just go around the park and again do not see anything around.

Nothing much to see there except a miniature village replica. The history behind the place is fascinating though.

Don't waste your time here. Better to read it up in some literature or watch some dvd. A big space of nothingness.

We first saw this place from riding a bike along the city wall and it looked interesting so we noted where it was and the next day we traveled there. It was very huge and expansive. I think it would be better to get a guide if you really want to know the history of the place because to us,... More

Though at the surface you hardly see anything, it has a lot of hidden treasures. Depending on your stamina, you can either choose to take a stroll or take the tram (at a cost). The place has a lot of rich heritage, there is even a model of the actual site. Worth taking a look if you are interested in... More

Roughly about 1/3 of the size of the old city of Xi'an, this park is huge. I visited this place on a windy day so there were hundreds of people flying kites here. You can easily purchase a kite from the numerous vendors if you're incline to join in. This place is divided into two sections: paid (access to museums... More

This is an enormous park just north of the ancient city wall, but there isn't much in the way of flowers, plants, or statues. Vast empty spaces mostly, and not many locals exercising. There are some museums on the grounds, available for a fee. The ruins of the ancient palace are virtually gone, with only some signs discussing what was... More

took 216 from my hotel and alighted at the eastern side of the park. You can spend the whole day here strolling along this big park with a beautiful lake.

This ruin is preserved in this huge outdoor park. It is interesting to walk around inside of this park but you have to use a lot of imagination. The only things you could see here are the bases of buildings from Tang Dynasty. Therefore, there is not that much to see in this park. Besides, it is cold in the... More
