China's first ruins park is in Henan, the size of which is equivalent to the Forbidden City in Beijing. It is free to open Luoyang City, Henan Province. As one of the most historic ancient capitals in China, wherever you go, you may find a few under your feet. For the cultural relics of the millennium, if you like historical monuments, Luoyang is a must-go city. Time returned to more than 3,000 years ago, Zhou Wuwang attacked the Shangyu Wang, established the Zhou Dynasty, and considered the construction of a new capital in Luoyang, but Zhou Wuwang soon passed away. The construction of Luoyang City was in Zhoucheng. Completed by the king, Zhou Gong is responsible for the construction. In that year, Zhou Gong built two cities in Luoyang, namely the Wangcheng in the west and the Chengzhou in the east, collectively known as Luojing. Wang Cheng is the seat of the Zhou Dynasty's palace, and Luoyang has become the capital of the Zhou Dynasty, and Luoyang has a park, which was built on the site of the original Zhou Dynasty Wangcheng. Wangcheng Park is one of the most famous parks in Luoyang. It is also the first heritage park in China and the largest comprehensive park in Henan Province. Luoyang Peony is the best in the world. We all know that Luoyang holds the Peony Festival every year, and the birthplace of the Peony Festival is Wangcheng Park. The park is very large, covering an area of 720,000 square meters, which is equivalent to the area of the Forbidden City in Beijing. It takes several hours to complete the tour. Today, Wangcheng Park is free to open and is a good place for locals to enjoy leisure and entertainment. There are different areas such as ancient culture area, peony flower garden, zoo and playground. Wangcheng Park has been built since 1955 and has been inextricably linked to Peony since then. As the park continues to expand, the area and variety of peony is increasing. During the annual Peony Festival, Wangcheng Park became the preferred place to see peony, and the park will charge separately. In the ancient cultural area, there is a river Tuluo book monument based on the legend of "River Out, Luo Yishu". The River Tullow is the origin of Chinese culture. In addition, there is also a music station, which is equipped with chimes, editing and other musical instruments. Today's Wangcheng Park, the most representative is the peony. There are more than 800 varieties of peony in the park, more than 100,000, which is the main venue of the previous Luoyang Peony Fair. Located in the heart of the city, Wangcheng Park is very convenient for transportation and dining.

It can be reached by taking the chicken horns and then walking for a distance. The ropeway is 60 yuan/person, down 50 yuan/person, round-trip 100 yuan. /people. Dragging the tired body to the Guangming Peak of Baiyun Mountain, but the scenery of Guangming Peak did not disappoint us. Standing around the Guangming Peak, the peaks are competing, and the walls are full of thousands of miles. It is exactly that sentence

Luoyang Baiyun Mountain Jiulong Grand Canyon. The Grand Canyon of Kowloon is the core scenic spot of Baiyun Mountain in Luoyang. It is the essence of the scenery of Baiyun Mountain and one of the most beautiful canyons in the Central Plains. The waterfalls in the Grand Canyon of Kowloon are very worth seeing. In addition, the plank road in the Grand Canyon is also very interesting. You see, they are flying over the cliff, walking through the cave, or squatting in the valley, and it has become a chic landscape. The most important thing to miss is the cave road. The tunnel is 800 meters long and is divided into 5 sections. The hole is not high and needs to be passed by the cat. Walking in the hole will give you the feeling of stealing notes. When you walk out of the hole, you will be bright and clear. In addition, the Kowloon Flyover and the cliff glass path can also be challenged.
