Pretty much as the title says, the bridge is not like anything else I have seen here, mainly due to the connection in the middle with boats as well as the numerous pavilions that make up the bridge's abutments. The view from the riverfront (free) is honestly better than walking on the bridge itself, which carries a charge of 50... More

This 1000 year old bridge is of unique construction -- the middle part of which is resting over a series of pontoons,openable for marine traffic! Unfortunately it was closed for protection and we could only admire it at the adjacent park. Afterwards we hired a trickshaw there to see the Jiadi Alley (甲第巷), along both sides of which lie government... More

Liked: the unique characteristic of the bridge where the middle section, consisting of 18 boats, can be removed, to enable ships to pass through. Disliked: the presence of beggars.

A great place to visit. You don't need long and the steep price (compared to other attractions in China) may put some people off but it's worth it and there are no crowds. Beautiful place to spend some time.

The bridge is a nice view, but I didn't pay to enter. Is just in front the gate for the old city which is also a must go. You can also rent bikes to ride around the lake enjoying the view. You can take nice pictures, and enter in the old city to try some chinese good snacks and visit... More

I've been living less than 300 metres from this bridge for the last seven years. It looks different depending on where you view it from and I've seen it from just every possible angle now. It costs RMB60 per person to enter, which is a bargain considering there are few, if any, other bridges like this one in existence. Definitely... More

Did a stroll across the bridge and the view was great. It was not crowded which let me appreciate the place even more.
