I visited in Feb. 2014 both day and night. Walk around the lake, and experience the locals free park. But a good idea is to visit at night when trees are lit, bars are lively with locals, have a meal or drink there. Also you can see the locals exercising to music in large groups when it is cooler. I... More

I last visited this place over ten years ago and they were charging over 100 rmb a person entry fee. My wife and I went for a walk there a few days ago on a nice sunny afternoon and for free it's a great place to browse around. There were very few people there on a weekday afternoon and it... More

It on the edge of town so we got a taxi. As stated below it has had better days. Basically it's a replica oft Beijing palaces, with a lake andsome amusement rides thrown in. Given it was free we enjoyed our walk around but it looked like the waterpark the lost city had closed for good bit maybe it was... More

I find the time spent at this attraction is worthwhile. Moreover there's no admission charge. There are quite a number of halls which lead to a beautiful lake. This huge place is an appropriate and beautiful setting for Imperial period filming. In fact there's an Imperial hall setting with a throne whereby you can pay to dress up like an... More

Typical of Chinese parks but also has an attached water theme park. The main park is pleasant but is mostly lake so the only real choice you have is whether to clockwise or antclockwise. There's also a typical Temple just inside the gates.

I have been staying at my son's place on and off for visits in Zhuhai since 2006 and I find that Zhuhai is a nice place with nice cooling weather as the weather is not so extreme during Spring, Autumn and Winter but for Summer it is a bit hotter with the weather reaching up to 35 to 38 degrees...

Although this's a new park that duplicated from the original one in Beijing, it's still a nice place to visit. I enjoyed taking photos in this place.

It used to cost a good deal to visit but it was free in Nov. when we went. They are having trouble attracting visitors. Good for kids but just another copied example of a former real place complex in Beijing. There is so much else that is more interesting in Zhuhai don't waste your time.
