Basically this place is an open air amphitheater built in the 20's. I was surprised that they charged admission to get in here, but I guess if there was a show there it would make sense. I had bought a multi ticket when I visited...More

We were here by Sept 2014. The ticket cost RMB$10/head. When the time we came it's Sunday therefore we saw many families. There are many pigeons flying everywhere. Many kids feed the pigeons. Suitable for family gathering on weekends. Besides that it's nothing to see.
