  • Water fountain plays beautifully with music on the background. Really worth waiting around for this show.  more »
  • The largest music fountain in Asia, and by the time the fountain of adulthood is accompanied by music, it is the atmosphere, and the evening with the light of the lined, is very strong. Really worth a look, front of the Wild Goose Pagoda!

  • Music is very loud, the fountain with the music upward spray, surrounded by a lot of people, everyone watching, for some time, music stopped, everyone left, as if the time of the show in the noon and evening. By the time period, it's OK. There is a restaurant nearby.
