  • Participate in a tour offered by the hotel. Morning a ride in passenger cars. Includes round trip transportation is glad, but four people were crammed into the three-passenger rear seat, was quite cramped. Care to take a tour. It was also so far not at all also have someone who could interpret other patrons not only the Chinese people, who speak little English. In the Park are connected points between by bus. Toilet is in some places. Natural lakes and fields that season while not as a flower is beautiful though and soon got bored.
