Dayan Pagoda Northern Square is famous for the big music fountain for most of the tourist. I usually like to go there in the evening because this is really a good place for the night walking after dinner. Enjoy the night scene of the big wild goose pagoda and walk around the music foundation and the Tang Style Street is... More

The show itself is decent enough with a mixture of Chinese music and more familiar classical European music. At times I felt that whoever choreographed it lost their way a bit but on the whole it was ok, plus it's free, so no real complaints. My issue lies with the Chinese tourists - one guy walked between the fountains with... More

The Northern Square of the Dayan Pagoda (Big Wild Goose Pagoda). is beautifully planned and design. The music water fountain is a great attraction at night. During day time, it is a wonderful place to stroll around with friends and family, the facilities are especially friendly with family with small kids. There are many nice restaurants within walking distance in... More

I visited the Northern Square one evening in September 2014 to see the musical fountain show. Although the show itself is not particularly spectacular, it is very beautiful to watch due to the colourful lighting and the loud classical music the fountains 'dance' to. However, what made this a really fantastic experience was the whole atmosphere of the place. Huge... More

The park is huge, we saw part of it in the afternoon (Pagoda) then returned later that night for the beautiful musical fountain show, light and music like we've never seen before, it was an experience not to be missed. The Chinese don't do things by half, what a wonderful free activity to bring your children to see. It was... More
