  • It is a beautiful to revisit after my journey there 12 years ago. The park has actually improved in many aspects--- even more beautiful and cleaner. There are less and less smokers in China nowadays, ...  more »
  • A very beautiful and quiet park with lots of flowers and flowering shrubs and trees. Trails along the streams and around the large pond. Many benches for enjoying the scenic views. We had good weather and then you have a beautiful view of the pond on the more than 5000 metre high snow dragon mountain. The park is a 15-minute walk north of the North Gate of the old city centre. At the end of the park is the Naxi museum.
