Theme Park
M37***54[Personal play guide] The location is located in Duoba Town, Huangzhong District, I personally recommend to drive, go west from the city and the high speed is very fast, friends without a car can take a tour 2 from the city to the east gate of Tongmeng Park. First enter from the east gate and take a guide map. According to the recommended routes above (parent-child route and couple route), you can clearly go to play. We can choose to go to the aquarium nearby, where there will be beluga mermaid and dolphin performances, and we can also feed some naive little animals. Next, if we have children, we can go to Tongmeng Kingdom, which has video game city, naughty castle, etc. This is the world of children. Then at noon, we can go to Silk Road Town or Pomegranate Seed Si to taste delicious food. In the afternoon, we can experience stimulating projects such as big pendulum, torrential advancing, jumping machine and so on in the land park, and then when it is almost sunset, we can go to the iconic Qinghai Eye of Tongmeng Park, which can be overlooked from the Ferris wheel. In the children's dream paradise under the sunset, it is highly recommended for couples to check in. The last play-day we will definitely be very tired, this is the time we can go to Tongmeng Water World, take a bath in the hot spring medicine pool to relax. [Personal recommendation] 1. It is best to stay here for two days, otherwise you will be in a hurry. You can stay in Ocean Resort Hotel, Silk Road Inn or Swan Castle Boutique Hotel. 2. Those who want to go to the water world are best to bring their own swimsuits. Of course, they are also sold inside, but they are more expensive. 3. Friends who like to take photos can go to Silk Road Town and Tongmeng Castle. 4. Those who like to taste food must go to the pomegranate seed garden. 5. Friends who don't want to line up can choose to go there on weekdays, almost no need to queue.

Roger ChiaWas told must require covid test for visitors from outside Qinghai but upon walk-in, online booking is ok & no covid test required. Great Tibetan history, beautiful costumes, rich culture, interesting architecture, temples, etc. & longest 'Tangka' in the world. Well worth to visit.

Xining Travel Tips

About Xining

Xining is the provincial capital of Qinghai. This is usually the first stop for many travelers en route to visit the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau. This high-altitude city is home to all kinds of cultures and their respective treasures. Dongguan Mosque in downtown Xining faithfully reflects the religious beliefs of the Muslim people. Kumbum Monastery on the outskirts of the city is an important Tibetan Buddhist temple. When departing from Xining you can take a day or two to experience the wonder and charm of Qinghai Lake—the highest salt lake in the world and largest lake in China. The local delicacies of Xining are all very inviting and worth tasting, particularly the mutton spareribs and local yogurt. The city’s climate is temperate, cool and comfortable. It is an excellent place to escape the stifling heat of summer in the lowlands.
