It is the most representative attractions worth visiting at least once to Bonnie. A lot of people are ignorant.

  • This place is huge and it's a maze if you don't turn on your body's internal GPS you'll get lost easily because everything looks the same. There's nothing special to see here, the food aren't particularly good and some of the places smells really bad because garbage is everywhere.

At most times, surviving a photo for the home, which it clearly a China see as we know it from the movies.
