Very nice and clean. So many photos and good place for walking.
Beautiful bridge. Great picture spot if you have the time to fit in to your travel schedule.
I came here with my family when Dad was Charge d'Affaires at the Philippine Embassy in Beijing in the late 1970's. It was a truly memorable time in Beijing...
