Open to the public, evening at night. Part of the National Mall, just make your way around the different monuments/memorials. Also, there is a cafe/concession stand near this monument.
During major national changes, appeals, speeches, and rallies, everyone gathered around the reflection pool and looked at the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. Although such a large open space in Washington is occupied by the pool, everyone is still willing to gather here. This pool represents a reflection on the Vietnam War.
In front of the Lincoln Memorial, a rectangular pond, in many large American films, often see her figure. From the view, she is "reflection pond." In calm, in the light of the Chinese, stand in different directions, can see the monument, solemn reflection. As far as the scene is concerned, she is a "reflection pond". Washington, Lincoln is looking forward, Vietnam, Korea is accompanying, reflection on peace, reflection on strength, I don't know.
The pond is facing the monument, and the lake is calm.
The reflection pool, the Lincoln Memorial, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, and the funny monument... There are too many similar venues around. Take half a day to a day to stop and see and feel the atmosphere. They are all solemn places. I hope there are such places for the public to visit in China. A place to present flowers to show respect. It makes sense. All countries had suffered heavy casualties. Peace is at its best
Passing through the entire reflection pool from the Washington Monument to the front of the Lincoln Memorial is the most famous place to check in. Because the sunlight and the reflection of the pool water are commensurate, it creates the most perfect symmetry effect. Although the sun was about to go down when we went here for a whole day, so the light was slightly darker, but it did not affect the beauty of the reflection at all.
