Time of year
We enjoyed the scenery at this First Bridge of Yellow River, from the crowd to the scenery along the river front. As advised by our hotel staff, we stayed back till the evening to see the night scene with all the lightings on the bridge as well as the buildings near the river…
The bridge across the Yellow River (黄河）is a magnificent structure. The main attractions in Lanzhou are all around here. It is in the City. The charge of metered taxi from Lanmei Boutique Hotel to this location is RMB 12. When I was there, most visitors are locals. Worth visiting.
It was a great visit with a good walkway. Not so crowded on weekdays. You can find some hawkers selling foods/ souvenirs. Free entrance.
But it has a fascinating and long history. It provides a good view and crossing of the Yellow River. Docked boats afford a good location to enjoy tea or beer.
Used to cross from Lanzhou town to the walk up to the white pagoda. The bridge doesn't look anything special during the day, but is lit up nicely at night and the views from it across to the white pagoda when all lit up at night are stunning. This is apparently historical…
