  • Marco Polo bridge, is a great bridge, it has lions so much. And special. You can know the Chinese and Japanese history in 20th Century. And has museums near by here

  • Great to see and learn about its history.

  • Walk along history as you travers the bridge.

  • It's an effort to get here from the city center of Beijing. The closest metro stop is a 1 hr ride. I entered on the west side of the bridge and exit on the east side. It's a 2.3 km walk (30 min) from exit C of the Garden Expo Park metro station on line 14. From this station, you'll enter on the west side of the Yongding River. On the west side, the development is sparse and is mostly a residential area. It's not developed for tourism. The bridge has fame in being romanticized by Marco Polo in his travels and also being the site of the start Second Sino-Japanese War (War of Chinese People's Resistance Against the Japanese Aggression) on July 7, 1937. The bridge is completely dedicated to tourism and no vehicle traffic is allowed; you can stroll and take pictures with all 501 lions if wanted. The east side of the river is developed for tourism and all the vendors and main site markers are located here. From here you can return to the nearest metro station or stroll to the nearby Wanping Fortress or Chinese People's Anti-Japanese War Museum. It's a 2.3 km walk (30 min) from exit D of the Dawayao metro station on line 14. I think entering from the east and exiting on the east is better than doing a west to east exit. Gate fee is 20 RMB for adults.
