Longting Park is scenic, and a nice place for a relaxing walk. It contains mostly replicas of historical structures, rather than ancient ones.

It's part of a theme park. Maybe once upon a time it existed but not here. Even the water is man-made. Its great

Hello hello, sorry to break some hearts but this place isn't actually real or built on top of anything real. The whole area broke a guiness world record for the largest man made, built themed park (there are no rollercoasters). This is part of the millenium Park and costs around 40 cny to get in. Each section costs various amounts. I suggest to go look at it because it's stunning from the outside but not necessary to go in, if you want to watch a show, I suggest the park next door. I wouldn't suggest the one furthest away, due to the zoo inside and the cruelty to the animals, although the shows themselves are very good. The further park is suited for young children, the middle for all ages and this one for the elder generation to stroll around and enjoy the view, have a picnic and go on the boat.

NIce place to visit
Nov 2018 • Family
This is a rebuilt from a couple hundred years ago (the original is like a 1000 years old). But it is a nice location to visit, with lakes around it.

Really nice park around an interesing building
Jun 2018 • Couples
You can walk to this from the Drum tower in about 15 minutes, failing that a taxi is about 6 Rmb.

The main feature is the tower which is approached across a bridge, (tickiet office before the bridge). Tickets are 40Rmb half price for 60-69, 70+ free. Students get have price with a recognised ID.

The pavilion has about 55 steep steps to navigate and a secondary path down on one side, ( maybe both). Before you get to the tower there is an interesting model of the original layout, this clearly shows the way the water was used to create a moat. Now day it forms a series of lakes both inside and adjacent to the park. On the model, presumably to scale it shows the proximity of the Iron pagoda as quite close. However once you go up onto the pavilion you can see the pagoda is at least a kilometre away. It kind of brings home the sheer scale of things originally.

Do take the time to walk the grounds and explore, the plum orchard is a delight as our the other paths etc. One of the neat tricks they employ is to use banks of potted plants so there should always be colour in the gardens. As if June 2018 some of the area has been closed for work.

From the North east side you can access through to a second park area called Tian Bo Yang Mansion, at a further fee of 40rmb. Note once you pass through you cannot get back unless you pay again because there is a second entrance to Tian Bo Yang and they cannot know who came from which entrance.

Entering Tian Bo Yang on the right there is a large open air performance area with seats, water and lighting. Once you get past that the buildings are both quite and interesting all be it over populated with sales points . DO NOT expect to walk down into the next adjacent park area. To do that you must exit through the other gate and then pay a further fee.

Takes you back to Song Dynasty
Feb 2018 • Solo
As you all might know, Kaifeng is the ancient capital city of the Song Dynasty, which was the most advanced state of its time.

This Dragon Pavillion is the only surviving structure of the many buildings of the former Song Dynasty imperal Palace .

Have been rebuilt many times over almost 1000 years, the current design is of Qing Dynasty's KangXi era, definitely worth a visit

Come here when visiting Kaifeng

The way over to the Dragon Pavilion parts the lake, which is nice to see on both sides. Nice views to either sides. I arrived here just after the flower festival and people were removing the flowers and stands. I could see that it was nice. Must be beautiful with all those flowers.
The pavilion is also nice, not that spectacular, but nice. The stairs to the top are worth taking, because the view up there is really cool. Unfortunate for me there was some smog, so I couldn't look very far, but it gave the lake and the scenery beyond something mystical, which I liked and found fitting here.
Behind the pavilion there is a nice park, where you can stroll and enjoy.

Worth the steep climb
Oct 2017 • Solo
This is the main sight inside Long Ting Park and is included in the park's RMB60 entrance fee. It's not an original building and the base is simply ugly, painted concrete, but the hike up the steep steps to the recreation of the throne room of the old palace is well worth it. The views from the top are also very good.

Number 1 in Kaifeng
Sep 2017 • Couples
Very central, this is for me, the number 1 site in Kaifeng. The temple itself is not so big, but the scenic area around it is really beautiful, so I would recommend you to have apicnic there, and enjoy the nature, maybe even take a boat tour around the lake.
