Last day in Xi’an, most important attractions seen, what is left? One of us is very keen of nature and the areas related to that, so the most propriate places in the city to visit are the parks. First visiting point was very common park, next to the city wall. We were walking around, and met the unexpected view, local women’s dance rehersal. We sat down to the benches near by, and watched the “show” from VIP places. Really nice surprice, indeed.
Next we headed to the park we saw earlier, when passing by couple days earlier. The park was established to the area where one buddish temple used to be, and was mostly destroid in wars. The park is very beautiful with small streams and ponds, real place of peace.
Last destination was a true recreation park, even the name tells it, Tang paradise. To be able to enter this park, one needed to pay admission fee. Paid and passed the entrance, picked up the map (in Chinese of course) – and ready to go. The park was quite big, and had different kind of areas to visit. When walking around, we saw dancing show, traditionally dressed girls and boys as well as some horse-back-riding warriors. The park included also artificial lake, not forgetting the streams and ponds with black swans.
Inevitably the day turned to evening, and it was time to go back to the hotel, pack the backbags and get ready for the new adventures. Where exactly, that you will know, when reading the next post.
