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.

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.

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.

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.
