  • In the holiday season, the Great Sun arranges scientific activity to engage the family. And the pee said in the library that there are sundial, rockets, planets, six-generation landmarks,,,, and so on, to provide a public view. 3D film every three months.

  • A lot of the settings were new, but there was a lack of maintenance, and there was a tendency to reduce the trend holiday occasionally, there are activities to bring home, strong recommendations for the maintenance of the library and the park to give people a refreshing sense of scientific experience, the movie theater can also take the children to see the 3d movie

  • It is located beside a highway. It is not just a Monument of the Tropic of Cancer, there is also a solar museum which provides such detailed information about celestrial astronomy. Worth my time going. A 23.5° cafe was beside the museum. If you feel hungry, there is also a night market about 2.5km away. A cab will get you there, or just drive. There is a bus but the frequency is low.
  • Wonderful place to visit
  • Place for kids. There is not much to see. The solar exploration tower has some science experiments for school kids.
  • good
  • bored
