This is a largish park, with quite a number of attractions. What's interesting about all the temples etc., is that unlike so much of China, they've not (yet) brought the decorators in. As a result, you get a real sense of antiquity and history. It's...More

I was here in the middle of March. The city is polluted and dusty. At night it looks a bit nicer with the lights on and the night markets are quite ok. The ponds in the park where for the most part drained for mantenance....More

I've seen plenty of Pagodas in China, but Kaifeng's Iron Pagoda lives up to its boast that it is "thebest Pagoda under heaven". We were on a tight timeframe so we approached it via the West Gate. This took us through an avenue of trees,...More
