Song Dynasty Yuhe River. This is the free from any admission park going along the river with beautiful gardens and pavilions. Yuhe river connects two important and popular landmarks of Kaifeng city, Longting Park (Longting lake) and Baogong Lake. That's making the moving between locations easy and more interesting during the travel. Actually, Kaifeng is very convenient city for independent travelers.
When it comes to Kaifeng, the first thing many people think of is Qingming Shangheyuan. This time, we recommend a small attraction, Longting Park. At this time, it is the flower festival, and all kinds of flowers are open to the public. To the ancient capital of the Eight Dynasties.
In the peach forest of Longting Scenic Area, I accidentally caught a full scene. The grandfather and his wife, who are over 70 years old, are taking selfies with their mobile phones. Although they are older, their movements are somewhat slow. I can see that the technique of self-timer is not very skilled, but we are a group of people who are eating melons. Therefore, for this old couple to record such a loving picture, I can think of the most romantic thing, that is, slow with you. Slowly getting older.
Escape the blasphemy, the burning of the Chinese, I would like to make the promise of the Three Life III, the hand of the child, and the old man.
Looking back, it seems that every time I go to the golden autumn, I have to watch a chrysanthemum exhibition. Different from the past, this year I came to Kaifeng, where the flowers of the city are all chrysanthemums, and the bloom of chrysanthemums.
It turns out that the chrysanthemum exhibition here makes me worthwhile, and even makes me suspect that the chrysanthemum exhibition I have seen before may be a "fake" chrysanthemum exhibition. The chrysanthemums exhibited in the Longting scenic area are me so far. I have seen the most beautiful chrysanthemums, no one!
Long history and splendid culture make Long Ting regarded as a symbol of the ancient capital. To understand the history of Kaifeng, Longting Park must not go.
Longting Park was built on the ruins of the Imperial Palace of the Six Dynasties (the Houliang, Houjin, Houhan, Houzhou and Northern Song and Jin Dynasty) in the Five Dynasties. It is dominated by the splendid and imposing Longting Hall, from the Wumen and Yudai Bridges. The composition of the Qing Dynasty Wanshou Palace complex, such as Qihu, Chaomen, Zhaobi and Chaofang, fully demonstrates the majesty of the northern royal garden.
Do you want to say it is the palace! The garden environment is beautiful and the layout of the building is exquisite. Half of the entire Longting Park is a lake. The park is surrounded by water on three sides and has beautiful scenery. It has both the richness of the northern palace and the beauty of the southern country. I really can't help but want to praise it manually~
Opening the Chrysanthemum Festival
mention Kaifeng City, everyone may first think of "Kaifeng has a bag of blue sky, iron nouveau bag of rape", or the brave and fierce Yang family. However, in October of each year, chrysanthemum has become the only reason for everyone to come here. Because at this time, Kaifeng City will carry out the annual Chrysanthemum Culture Festival. During this festival, thousands of people from all over China who come to Kaifeng will gather in Kaifeng and enjoy a glimpse of flowers.
If the Chinese chrysanthemum is in Kaifeng, then the Kaifeng chrysanthemum is in the Longting. Every time the Chrysanthemum Cultural Festival, the Dragon Pavilion will be crowded with people, and there are more people who travel to the Forbidden City than the National Day.
Into the Longting, picking up the stairs, a gust of wind blowing, with a strong fragrance will be hit without a head, hooking people, people can not help but speed up to find out, all The tourists seemed to be waiting for a flower to bloom before entering the park.
Go deep into it, look around, chrysanthemums painted the entire Longting Park into a color world, completely subverting the perception that the dean has always thought that chrysanthemums only have yellow.
Longting Park presents characteristic Kaifeng history and culture, consisting of three sections including Longting, Yangjiahu, and Panjiahu. Longting appears to be a pavilion, but is rather a temple built on a huge blue-brick base. It used be the site of the imperial palace during the late Liang, late Jin, late Han, late Zhou, Northern Song, and Jin Dynasties. The impressive site features not only ancient monuments, but gorgeous natural scenery. During the fall, this is the site of the Kaifeng Chrysanthemum Cultural Festival, which is a great time to come and enjoy the beauty of blooming chrysanthemums.
