This is an enormous park just north of the ancient city wall, but there isn't much in the way of flowers, plants, or statues. Vast empty spaces mostly, and not many locals exercising. There are some museums on the grounds, available for a fee. The ruins of the ancient palace are virtually gone, with only some signs discussing what was... More

took 216 from my hotel and alighted at the eastern side of the park. You can spend the whole day here strolling along this big park with a beautiful lake. An informative map of the whole site can be retrieved from the visitor center at the main entrance (south). The map will provide you different routes to take depending on... More

This ruin is preserved in this huge outdoor park. It is interesting to walk around inside of this park but you have to use a lot of imagination. The only things you could see here are the bases of buildings from Tang Dynasty. Therefore, there is not that much to see in this park. Besides, it is cold in the... More

There is nothing much to see at the site. Everything was destroyed long ago. Whatever remains are just some recreations. You have to remember that the whole complex is a city by itself consisting of over 1000 buildings so it is huge. There are buggies ride to get around the site. If you visit the site, look out for the... More

The park itself is quite nice, there are a lot of grounds to play on. There is a electric buggy service that you can purchase that takes you around the entire park.

One thing you need to bring along when visiting this site is your imagination. Whatever remained is just the base of the structure. However, they did a good job by having various replica of the palace. Although we are unable to see the original structure as it was destroyed, however, you will be amazed with the architecture and the meaning... More

You should take some time and go into the park but just visiting the plaza on the south side is great. The park has several museums and a large scale replica of the ancient city. There is also a 3D theather and a section of the old city wall.

We stumble upon this forgotten gem one day when we basically were lost. This park is huge and shows the wealth of past emperors. It is rather new - in 2010 the eviction of thousands of households living on the site began and five years later this magnificent park was done. We visited in July and the park was basically...

Experience the grandness of the Tang Dynasties here in the 374 hectares of land. 5 times bigger than the Forbidden City in Beijing. Although all the original were gone, it's a good feel of the whole empire. A few buildings have been rebuilt to allow tourist feel the place. Also watch the 3D movie about the fall of the Tang...
