Daqing (Chinese: 大庆; pinyin: Dàqìng; formerly romanized as Taching) is a prefecture-level city in the west of Heilongjiang province, People's Republic of China. The name literally means "Great Celebration". Daqing is known as the Oil Capital of China and has experienced a phenomenal boom since oil was discovered at the Daqing Oil Field in 1959.

Daqing Times Square

Reviewed By John L - Surigao del Norte Province, Philippines

Times Square has two distinct faces - the winter version and the summer one. There's not a lot of activity in the park during winter except for festivals like the Lantern Festival, Chinese New Year and sometimes Spring Festival. However, even though it's freezing cold, the snow blankets the grass and Gardens, there are no leaves on the trees and the manmade lake is for ice skating.
In summer, the place comes to life and many people find it a very peaceful place to sit and read, sleep and do some sports like tennis and basketball.
You can cycle around the park, walk and jog. The Gardens are maintained and it's a very safe place to be night or day.
On a hot summer day the kids love playing in the Fountain.
I cycled around the park on more than a dozen occasions and found it relaxing, peaceful and quiet.
I lived in Daqing so the date I went there last was in 2015.

the Iron Man Memorial

Reviewed By Jerry T - Pennsylvania

We visited this museum in the dead of winter just because it was open. What a surprise we were in for. It is filled with stuff & info about the oil fields of Daqing and the Iron Man. Also the gift shop has some interesting and unique gifts. I would make this a "don't miss it" if you are ever in Daqing.
We visited in January 2012 during the New Year holiday.

Longfeng Marsh

Reviewed By Andrew_Alin - Greater Adelaide, Australia

The frozen landscape here in winter is quite photogenic, making it worth a visit. The guide told us this is a good place for bird watching during the warmer months, but all we saw were a big bunch of scavenger birds.

Доехала на автобусе 106. Остановка называется 油田历史馆. Вход свободный. Если начать обход музей слева, то вы будете плавно переходить из одного здания в другое. Внутри музей и на территории очень чисто! Кроме меня, в музее почти никого не было. Советую сходить.

Достаточно красивый парк. Много деревьев и цветов. Скамеек многом разных тренажеров. Фонтаны не работали, что очень плохо. А так все понравилось.
