Sanmenxia Swan Viewing Area

Reviewed By AidanEmily - Singapore, Singapore

There were some photographers along the lake, as well as retailers selling art work.
You had lots of space to take a walk with your loved ones. Even in the day, it was not overly crowded and visitors could spread out along the entire walkway.
There is no entrance charge. Quite a nice place to watch the swans in action.

Guo State Museum

Reviewed By dgrier - Due West, South Carolina

Sanmenxia's Guo State Museum is small, but very good. There are numerous bronzes, weapons, pieces of jade and jewelry, but the main attraction is the chariot burial, with 19 chariots and skeletons of 38 horses. The museum is modern and its artifacts tastefuly presented. The museum is well worth a visit if you are in Sanmenxia.

Sanmenxia Dam Scenic Area on Yellow River

Reviewed By Jo B - Drouin, Australia

It was good to be able to take a drive out to Yellow River Dam and to be able to read and discover more about the history of Sanmenxia and the dam. The dam itself wasn't pretty but the surrounding area was quite nice.

いわゆる お寺巡りだけの観光に飽きたら ぜひここに行ってください。
黄河を目の前にできますし、ダムの景色も素晴らしい。エレベーターで下まで降りるとダムの堰堤がまじかに見れて迫力があります。

Shan Zhou Scenic Area

Reviewed By 子瀟 陳 - Hong Kong, China

市區最著名的景點,我們第一個到達的地方就是這裏,由好幾個部分組成,有寺院佛塔、黃河濕地、天鵝湖棲息地、還有一個古代的學堂遺跡,裡面的庭院修建的還蠻精緻漂亮,裡面有隻小花貓不怕人很好玩。總體是一個大景點,只是配套設施一般,裡面比較大走起來很累。

Tianjing House

Reviewed By A TripAdvisor China Member

黄土高坡的古老穴居,在地下挖出一个方坑,四周在挖出窑洞居住,有井房,有牲口房,有厨房,大约7.8孔住宿的地方,在过去的年代,只要有力气,就可以解决一家人的住房了,窑洞在底下冬暖夏凉,8月进入地下,略微觉得有点潮湿。

Baolun Pagoda

Reviewed By Gary T - Xinzheng, China

The pagoda itself is about average, but my Very Good rating is based on a number of other attractions close to the pagoda, some of which are not listed yet on Trip Advisor. The pagoda was begun in the Tang Dynasty and rebuilt in 1177 during the Jin. Near the base of the pagoda is a group of petrified tree trunks. Nearby is a stone arch built in 1623 during the Ming, the Sino-Japanese Friendship Arboretum, ancient rammed-earth city wall, a temple, and the City Museum which so far is not listed on Trip Advisor. Not far away is a Warring States chariot burial tucked away in the midst of a residential neighborhood which almost no one knows about, and a few kilometers away is the world-class Guo State Tombs, Chariot Burial, and Museum. All these are photographed extensively and appear on my GaryLeeTodd.com website. There is also a swan lake nearby which, I believe, has been reviewed, and since I'm an expert on Chinese history and not waterfowl, I shall skip that attraction. The arch, museum, temple, wall, and peace garden are all a short walk from the pagoda and can all be easily viewed in a morning or afternoon.

Huixing Ancient Ferry

Reviewed By 子瀟 陳 - Hong Kong, China

和三門峽其他渡口一樣都淹沒在歷史的洪流中,只留下少少的念想供遊客把玩,會興渡的對面就是茅津渡,唯會興渡的碼頭修的好一些大一些。
