About Tropic of Cancer Marker Park

The Tropic of Cancer Marker Park combines astronomy, geography, and plant science with landscape art, tourism, and culture. It uses the position of the Tropic of Cancer in 2038 as its main axis, with works such as "Sun Road", "Kuafu Chasing after the Sun", "Door of the Tropic of Cancer", "Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter" and other architectural sketches, sculptures and main markers interspersed around the park, creating a series of vivid spaces. A popular science museum illuminates our understanding of nature, life and sunshine. Technology is used to accurately display the geographical location and changes of the Tropic of Cancer, and the Tropic of Cancer is "captured" here at the summer solstice every year.

    On the way back to Kunming, Xishuangbanna temporarily stops at Xiaomojiang County. There is a small landmark garden of the Tropic of Cancer beside the highway, which gives us great surprise. Both children and adults have gained a lot from popularizing astronomical knowledge. Especially the Tropic of Cancer has traversed the four ancient civilizations, which is amazing! Suggestion: Tickets for the elderly and children are discounted, at least half price. Two adult tickets can take a 15-year-old child with them. They don't need to buy a tourist ticket. They can drive to the park parking lot by themselves. There is no need to ask the tour guide, the entrance or the ground to scan the two-dimensional code to explain. It is especially recommended that the Earth Hall in the Astronomical Museum can learn a lot of knowledge, especially in the areas where the Tropic of Cancer crosses.

    Located in the south of Yunnan Province, Mojiang County is a small city under Simao, which was the old name of Puer City before Puer Tea became popular in the whole country. Mojiang is the main transportation route from the mainland of China to the southwest frontier area. It is very small, but it has a legendary twin spring and the twin festival held for this purpose. Moreover, the county town of Mojiang happens to be crossed by the Tropic of Cancer, with the tropical side being the temperate zone. Therefore, Mojiang is known as "Hani's hometown, the city of return, the twin home" and "the place where the sun turns around".

    Tropic of Cancer Park lets us know about geography and Hani culture. Twin theme elements make young couples who are traveling happy. It is said that they can have twins by drinking the water from the two wells.

    On the way back from Banna, I stopped at the Mojiang River. Because I arrived at the hotel early, I went to the Tropic of Cancer Sign Garden to pass the time according to my boss's suggestion. I didn't expect anything before I entered, but I couldn't change my opinion completely after the visit. This is a small but connotative park, with the Tropic of Cancer as the central axis, built on the mountains along the North-South direction. Passing through the Moon Square in front of the West Gate and climbing up the stairs into the West Gate, we introduced all the countries across the Tropic of Cancer from China. During the game, we can let the children have a preliminary understanding of world geography. Continue up to Gemini Square, North Branch highlights in Hani sacred place, South Branch highlights in the Astronomical Museum, not only for children but also adults is a good place to popularize popular science knowledge, teach fun, stick! From Gemini Square to the east, there are main towers, sundials, sunshine and moon, transcendence, stone rings, Kuafu pursuit of the sun, five-element pillars, the road of the sun, and finally to the East Gate. Due to the time constraints, all the way down is to watch the flowers. Unfortunately, if you come next time, you must spend more time and savor the quality of the place.

    The park is not big enough to be visited in an hour. It has the geographical advantages of twin symbols and the landmark of the Tropic of Cancer. It also has the experience of echo wall and the visit to the Astronomical Museum. It has increased a lot of knowledge. The Hani characteristic park is worth visiting.

    The overall feeling here is still a little unsatisfactory. After all, it's a small county town. I came here with faith. With my husband, I plan to stay here for three days, hoping that my dream will come true.

    Very special attractions! Is it unique in China? On both sides of the Tropic of Cancer, there are two climates and different plants. The special climate also contributed to the high birth rate of twins there.

    We can have a better understanding of literary knowledge, Hani culture, how many countries the Tropic of Cancer traverses, and some stories. We can know that the Hani people are a people centered on fire, and understand the phenomenon of sunshine and moon.
