Yueyang Pavilion (Yueyang Lou), Yueyang

(150+ reviews on the web)
Landmark
An exquisite three-story tower overlooking Dongting Lake, Yueyang Pavilion (Yueyang Lou) poignantly raises the tips of its roofs towards the heavens, resembling a giant bird in flight or an ancient warrior’s helmet. One of the three great towers south of the Yangtse River, this architectural treasure dates back to the fourth cenutury CE, with the original building constructed in the third century BCE. Made entirely out of wood with no metal nails or beams, this fine 15 m (49 ft) high structure stands as a masterpiece of classical Chinese military joinery. Enjoy views of the lake, observing busy docks and ships, or take a stroll in the scenic garden surrounding the pavilion. A pedestrian street nearby offers good restaurants.

  • 对于《岳阳楼记》中的岳阳楼,实际看到的确实有那种辽阔感,但是岳阳楼景区内不是特别大,岳阳楼在景区的最里面,可能之前铺垫的小景点比较多,建议大家自行带一些小面包小零食进入,但是要注意公共卫生。景区环境还是比较好的,旁边就是洞庭湖,站在岳阳楼上还可以看到君山岛,喜欢文化景点和自然景观的游客可以前往。  more »

  • 花了四個小時,只走了三分之一,因為內容太豐富,歷史太精彩,再再拖著我前進的步伐!景區規劃完善,帶我們走過歷史的長河,而無處不在的禮品店,其實也是很好的學習場所,朝拜之後,到洞庭湖走走,更是人生一樂。  more »
