If you have a chance visit nearby do drop by this free admission museum and really learn how the most important part of China formed. There is x ray screen at entrance and would not get queue up too long.

afford the high-end brands that fill the malls and
shops along Madang Road. The pleasant Taipinghu Park
provides the area with green space and is also home to
