This bridge is not easy to get to but it can be added with a visit to Fragrant Hills park since both are in west Beijing (as long as you start early). This bridge is historically important as it was the place where the Japanese...More

We caught the subway then walked to this site. The bridge was amazing with each lion being different and the ancient ruts from wagons down the middle. There were not many people there and we walked through an area of closed shops and restaurants that...More

There are numerous carved lions on top of each balustrade and the fun is to try to count how many there are. This bridge is historical because of an incident it signaled the beginning of the war between China and Japan. If you have time...More

700 year old bridge totally restored and well maintained. Longest stone bridge in this style in China. Location where Japanese war with China began. Very neat site to visit and an easy walk.

If you're in Beijing for 3 or more days and you're tired of fighting your way through crowds to see historical sites, this is your spot. The location way to the southwest of the city is not convenient (I took 2 buses), so it's definitely...More

A 'have to see'. Marco Polo Bridge is so old and of major historic significance not least because of its connection to the attack by Japanese forces in 1937. A strip along the middle of the bridge has been removed to reveal the original flagstones...More
