The #Jurassic World is a children’s paradise. They can learn about dinosaurs, and the best part being the 5-D theatre with lots of adventures from the Jurassic world. Be prepared to be greeted by the dinosaurs’ voices at every corner.

There is also a #Camping Ground, which our junior #dragons can enjoy themselves immensely as well. There are over 100 water games for you and the family to explore and enjoy.

Then, stop along the #Love Valley, a sea of flowers you can dive into. This is just a taste of the #Mediterranean just like at #Champs-Élysées. Come with friends and be refreshed with the bed of flowers.

What a breeze! With the soft and #fragrant flowers that surrounds the air. The fields of flowers have lost their patience to hide in the ground. You just know now Spring is finally here.

Rapeseed flowers, Shiba #sakuras, and #Lavenders - will turn our gardens into seas of flowers. Try a #Han Costume and dive into the fields, what a #photo opp you can share with friends and family.

Next stop are some exquisite #exhibit halls. The display of #imperial historical #anecdotes. All sculptures are made from a special plant.

To the left of the garden is the Art Museum of Han Meilin, art designer of the mascot “Fortune Kids” for the 2008 #Olympic Games in #Beijing. See the works of this talented artist. Shandong is the home state of etiquette, thanks to Confucius, our native son and philosopher. Practicing formality starts from the home. Here at the Museum of Family Mottos, you will find a collection of family motto and stories on #Chinese family hierarchy and respect.

For many Chinese people, family philosophical heritage outweighs material valuables. Master #Zhou taught his sons the importance of being humble. The stories of Mother of Mencius, and the Langya (now Linyi) #Wang family (where 92 prime ministers were descendants of) are frequent topics cited by among Chinese parents.

The #Wood Cultural Museum, as its name suggests, is a large collection of sculptures, furniture and brilliant art exhibits made from wood material.

The #Wedding Museum showcases the life of daughters from birth to marriage. Things to use, #traditions to follow, as well as being protected and educated until their parents send her off to the man at marriage. The exhibit displays traditions that were widely used, but rarely seen elsewhere. Local customs and parents’ love of their daughters are explicitly displayed.

The #bedroom is the most important part of life in Shandong’s traditions. You will see extraordinary craftsmanship on the designs of these beds, and decorative symbols that often convey the wishes of older generations at the Bedroom Museum.

There is also a #porcelain culture museum, #dye museum, etc. Do not miss a peek into any of these.

New destinations are popping at every corner now in Linyi. And now you can find a flood of blossomed flowers around the city.

The sheer beauty of Mount Yimeng captures your attention instantly. Perhaps you have visited the Grand Underground valley and the Tong Tou hot springs; but the Dragon Garden may sound new to you. Uncover some of the spots at the Dragon garden, especially with Spring already here to see the flowers and willow branches blooming.

The Dragon Garden holds many hidden stories that have become today to be built after the idea of the Dragon. Even Emperor Qinshihuang, who was well-known for uniting China after the war against the 6 kingdoms (221BC), made 2 excursions to Linyi.

At the Dragon Garden, you will find hills, forest, and springs that surrounds the Garden to an astounding scenery and nature. From the Suzhou-styled buildings around the Garden, a museum row with legendary stories and cultural relics, to the “Nine Dragon Wall Tablets”at the center courtyard that highlights significant meaning in cultural history.

An all-fish banquet is a cannot-miss food in #Nanyang. All #ingredients are of local produce. The #carp with 4 nostrils is the locals’ high requested. Our local chefs here are quite #innovative for the fish feast, offering unique #Weishan flavors for both local and international visitors. There will not be a single part of the fish wasted. For these local chefs, a fish can be eaten in 10 different ways. How could it be you say? A 10-course fish banquet awaits you. Drop a comment what they could be…

#Salted duck #eggs are also a popular treat. Found at most shops in Nanyang. These eggs look easy and fast to be eaten than they are preparing them. The authenticity of these eggs have natural oils and the strong taste of the saltiness making it very tasty.

Another staple snack - Qianlong (Ming Emperor) Cake aka “Nanyang Roasted #Cake”. It is a local’s daily food. Try a pack of roasted cakes, and if not bring home the rest to share. Do not forget to include a few duck eggs to complement the roast cakes. Nanyang roast cake is #crispy outside and tender on the inside. Wrapped with sesame seeds, and layered with fennel pepper, the texture is very chewy.

Dried #fish can be found everywhere too. All prepared at dusk. This is a souvenir that people bring home after a visit here. Salted and dried fish are by far the most popular souvenirs that will make your trip unforgettable.

Enjoy a boat ride on the #UNESCO World Heritage Site, “The Grand Canal of Bejing-Hangzhou”, aka the Grand “JingHang” Canal. Shandong has the oldest section of the canal with 1000 years of history and the views at Weishan Lake and Nanyang Township are matchless.

Cruise along the Weishan Lake with an abundance of lotus flowers surrounding you and you can hear them singing especially in the Spring/Summer time. Grab a seat at the front of the boat and pick up a lotus seed if that tastes bitter. Funnily, that resembles much like the taste in life.

If you’re lucky enough, you may just catch a barge (a large boat that is tugged by a tiny boat) pass by. This is the magic of the business here. The fact that a barge can connect so many #random people together for a common goal in their trade is a real surprise. All helping hands will be stretched when one of their men have an emergency.

Nanyang Old Town is an ancient town with 2000 years of history. At its peak, during the Ming and Qing Dynasty (1368-1911), the town was ranked among the top 4 along the entire Canal route to make a stop and visit. Historical footprints from the past can be found anywhere here. Today, the town has been preserved and continues to operate as the top “water-town” north of Yangtze River.

Many historical and cultural treasures developed here. An old saying, “One Nanyang is half a canal’s history” – meaning half of the canal transportation history highlights that from Nanyang. Till today, an estimate of 30 historical landmarks still remain intact in the town. They may appear to have blended with the town architecture, but it's unique with sculptures so detailed and beautiful, usually reminds you of the previous prosperous era. Nanyang is also close to nature’s beauty. Large farms, acres of reeds, clear lakes and wild #geese, and a water theme park!
You can practically spend a week and not be tired of it. Just the right kind of break you could use.
