What to do and see in Mianyang, China: The Best Places and Tips

July 17, 2017 Rosalyn Ihle

Mianyang (simplified Chinese: 绵阳; traditional Chinese: 綿陽; pinyin: Miányáng; Wade–Giles: Mien-yang) is the second largest prefecture-level city of Sichuan province in Southwest China. Its population was 5.45 million in 2015 covering an area of 20,281 square kilometres (7,831 sq mi) consisting of Jiangyou, a county-level city, six counties and two urban districts. Its built-up (or metro) area was home to 1,722,133 inhabitants including the city proper of Mianyang (two urban districts) and An County largely being conurbated as urbanisation sprawls. In 2006, Mianyang was ranked as China's third "most suitable city for living" by China Daily, after coastal cities Dalian and Xiamen., but it has since dropped out of the top 10.

Fule Mountain

Reviewed By CuriousSwede - Munich, Germany

I was here on business staying in the hotel on top of the mountain and had some spare time so we walked down here and had a stroll. Pretty much everything is in Chinese, but luckily for us we had a Chinese colleague with us who could explain some of the symbolic meanings. She also informed us that they have Concerts and plays here some evening. Unfortunately we couldn't attend one.
Even without the translation help it is still worth a visit. The temple is beautiful and and so is the garden. Very calming. If you walk in after 5pm (I think it was) it is for free, otherwise there is a symbolic charge.

I was so intrigued at how many different temples there were there. The 3D murals are so beautiful, and colourful. Burn some incense for your good fortune.

Mt. Xishan Park in Mianyang

Reviewed By leivicky_008 - Mianyang, China

this park is based on a beautiful story in China which is about hundreds years ago,maybe thousand...and there's a tomb of a great General from ancient China,it's kind of weird layout,but you don't feel any strange,cuz the planner has considered and give the peaceful place for the hero on the top of the hill and save the landscape for the fair lady's story...

Yuewang Tower

Reviewed By CuriousSwede - Munich, Germany

The old Yue Wang Tower was damaged in one of the earth quakes in the area and was rebuilt. In this tower they are setting up a new kind of museum (some exhibition parts still under construction within the tower).
You would take the lift up to the 15th floor (top floor) to enjoy the view on a clear day. Up stairs there is also a stage and you have the possibility to test out some traditional clothing and possibility to purchase something to drink (i.e. tea).
You walk down stairs where each floor has a different exhibition, some with calligraphy as a theme, others with overview of famous poets from the Sichuan and Mianyang area. Ensure you have a Chinese speaking person with you as all the information is in Chinese.
For me it was simply a nice exhibition were I yet again learned something new about China - and that in a quite peaceful place.

仙海水利风景区是距离绵阳市区不算太远的一个水库。我们从市区开车前往,大约不到半个小时就到了。仙海湖里有游船可以乘坐。不过最棒的还是附近餐馆卖的火锅鱼了。因为就地取材,所以味道非常鲜美。价格还算合理。

Mianyang KeJiGuan

Reviewed By vtgrnd - 東京

四川省綿陽市にある綿陽科技館では、世界でも珍しい浮遊体験ができる施設がある。仕組みとしては、地面からものすごい強風が吹きつけられ、腹ばいになっている体が浮くという仕組みである。トレーニングを受けた講師と共に浮遊するため困ることは無いが、浮遊中は口は絶対に閉じて置き鼻呼吸しないと呼吸ができなくなるので注意。感覚としては、スカイダイビングをしているような感じである。体のどこを動かすと気流を受けてどういう方向に体が飛ばされるかを体験できておもしろい。

百盛进入中国市场很多年,主要经营的是一些中高档的品牌,所以价位偏高,购物环境是不错,这家店在绵阳算是一家老店了,一楼有肯德基,其他的就和一般的百货公司差不多了。
