Baoji Bronze Ware Museum

Reviewed By Travelingmaven - Chicago, IL

Hardly a "side trip" from Xi'an, in Sha'anxi Province, since it's around 3 hours by car, this museum is well-worth a visit, especially if you stop at the Famen Temple Hotel to visit the Famen Temple site and stay overnight.
This is the largest museum devoted to bronzewares in China. The architecture was designed so the building looks like a four-legged bronze food container. Four large exhibit halls were open when we went there in June, with the potential for 4 more. We wish they had been open while were were there!
Baoji is known as the "cradle" of bronzeware in China. The museum showcases bronzes from the Zhou period onward, many unearthed locally. The workmanship is fabulous! One treasure, in particular, an ox-shaped wine vessel, defies belief because of its delicacy and workmanship.
We saw a documentary about the museum on CCTV, and decided to visit. We were happy we did.

Datang qinwang Mausoleum

Reviewed By Jun Z

A very quiet place on the hill to the north of Baoji.
Planty of beautiful ancient stone carvings, paintings on wall, pottery are displayed. An unique underground terminal building is gorgeous.
The underground tunnel to the underground palace has steep slope. Walked on it very carefully.
You can't get the museum by public transit. However, it is not expensive to get there by taxi. It is about RMB13 from Hua tong Department Store by taxi. When I got back, I had to walk about 500m to the local road to wait for a taxi.
It is close to an ancient temple Jintaiguan. You can visit it as your second stop on your way down to Baoji.

Baoji People's Park

Reviewed By Elizabeth M - Wabash, Indiana

People's Park (Ren Min Yuan) is a lovely park designed to attract all ages. Entering via a plaza with larger than life statues, one can feel the spell of the romantic trees, river, and Bridges. The plaza is the location for the nightly "square dancing," where people of all ages step together to lively Chinese tunes. Anyone can join the dancing, but it is similar to American line dancing, so it's easy to feel out of step - literally.
Beyond the plaza entrance lies a waterway which curves through the park, providing scenes of beauty and nourishment for the willow trees lining its shore. Looking north across the river, a giant laughing Buddha presides over the park. If you follow the path to the west of the entrance, the sounds of music, screams of laughter, and children playing will draw you to the little amusement park, which contains not only a merry-go-round, but a tall drop-car ride that the wise fear to experience.
University students often come to People's Park not only for the thrill rides, but to walk along the winding course of the river, relaxing from the summer heat in the relative coolness of shady nooks. Ever present smart phones document the scenic memories with selfies and group shots.
There is much to see in the park, including seasonal flowers (tulips, magnolias, chrysanthemums, etc.), sculptures, boat rides, and more. Probably Baoji's most popular year-round park, People's Park provides a taste of Chinese relaxation.

Baoji Yandi Ling(Tomb)

Reviewed By Elizabeth M - Wabash, Indiana

In the three years since the last review was written, Yandi Ling has both been built up and deteriorated. Nonetheless, it is worth the 200+ steps to the top to view the burial mound and see the city's Panorama. When I visited the site during the weekend of Dragon Boat Festival, very few people were there. Perhaps more people come during other festivals (Qingming, mid-Autumn, and others).
The temple sits near the bottom of the mountain, just a few steps up from the parking area. It is fairly new and well maintained. Behind it is the grand plaza quietly waiting for public ceremonies to bring it to life once more. There the large statues of Yandi are impressive, but the grandeur of the first one (outside) is diminished by the very plain building directly behind it; and the beauty of the second one (inside the building) is lessened by the fact that the interior of the building is undergoing renovation. Presently it is a very large, bare room with a rough, red felt carpet laid to protect and soften the harshness of the cement floor.
The climb to the top is lovely. Trees and statues of emperors line the many steps. The burial mound itself is a small hill covered in lush green vegetation. The atmosphere is peaceful and the air is clear. The spot is open to breezes singing through the trees.
Although this site lacked the finesse of other places I have visited, it is noteworthy because of its mythical / historical significance. Yandi is considered by some to be the god of agriculture; it was he that taught the men of ancient China how to plant crops and taught the women how to sew. The remembrance of these humble beginnings is beneficial for all of us.

宝鶏の市街を流れる渭河の北岸に整備された公園。昼間は散歩のおじさんおばさんで賑わっていてマンウォッチングが楽しいですが、夜は薄暗く、人けが少ないので危ないです。特に木が繁っているところなどは見通しが悪いので近づかないほうがいいでしょう。

大门距离景区太遥远了,景区没有游览车,必须自行驾车去,不然走到天黑吧。开车就开车吧,里面道路刚好能并排两辆车,而且陡坡,急弯不断,水平不是超高就不要去了。没有什么值得看的景点,就是一道河,围起来收钱。

寶雞鬧市區主幹道旁邊的大商場,很喜歡外裡面建築模仿古羅馬圓柱做支撐梁。內部結構通透面積很大,應該是寶雞最豪華的購物中心之一,從一層的化妝品櫃檯就看得出來。入駐品牌很多陳列略擁擠,樓上有一些餐飲店舖咖啡店。

Baoji Municipal Museum

Reviewed By A TripAdvisor China Member

中央一套的新闻节目中的广告,也出现了我们陕西的旅游介绍,这可是要花大价钱的,目的是希望提升陕西的旅游事业,出发点很好.
其中介绍第二个景点就是宝鸡,广告语:"青铜器之乡".的确此地出土了大量的青铜器,而且是周代的,特别具有价值.
可是慕名前去宝鸡的青铜器博物馆,却吃了个闭门羹,看得出此博物馆是花了巨大的财力和物力,馆门上大大地写着江泽民题的"青铜器之乡" 也许又是博物馆免费的后遗症.只见博物馆前到处都是垃圾,已经有很长时间没有开馆和清扫了.
但是也要赞扬的是,宝鸡市将附近的人民公园改造成周城主题公园,其中对宝鸡的青铜器进行了详尽的介绍,游人也从中了解了------宝鸡,青铜器之乡.

吴山,离宝鸡市区不远,山里面空气很不错,很多景点,山上还有买黄瓜的,在山上吃黄瓜,味道还真有点不同。上山的途中,还有猴子,挺可爱的,有的猴子在凉亭上吃东西。景区很放松,单位组织旅游来的。
