We walked 2 hours in 99° heat to see the Chairman Mao statue. I thought I would pass out but when I finally got there it was so worth it. It is something you really should see in real life. My advice for those going...More

Nice and extremely well maintained park good for a half day stroll. Best to take the sightseeing train for just 20 yuan as distances are great, especially on a hot day.

Beautiful park, and huge! If might take 2-3 hours to walk around the entire park. Young Mao looked like young Jim Morrison and very interesting. It's a park with fruit trees and green space, perfect for picnic or leisure stroll.
