Guan Di Miao

Reviewed By mikelima - Sydney

The historic buildings are spread over a large area. The buildings go back a very long time but still retain some very colorful murals. There are several ancient statutes. The Gardens are very well kept. You will need an interpreter as the guide speaks only Putonghua.

Salt Lake in Yuncheng County

Reviewed By zenteng - Pasadena, Maryland

This review is based on a CCTV science and history program. The salt lake in Yuncheng appears in a beautiful blood red color around every 1000 years. This is due to the magnesium sulfate and it lasts for a few days before being washed away. It was last seen in 2015 and before that during the Tang Dynasty. Guess we'll need to wait until around 3015 to see it again unless Mother Nature changes her mind. The Chinese archeologists have found evidence that the salt of the lake had been used over 6000 years ago.
They also showed some Temples of the Emperor. Yenchang has an interesting history and appears to be an off the regular tourist route. After one has seen Beijing, Shanghai
and Xian it is time to see those places off the beaten track such as Yuncheng

Changping Guandi Temple

Reviewed By TanDublin_Ireland - Singapore, Singapore

This temple is built over a huge compound, and even has its own 'summer palace'. It is worthwhile getting a local guide to explain the stories of Guan Yu. As its cold in Jan, the place is not crowded - which is a plus.

鹽池旁邊,去死海養生城會路過,湖對面就是中条山脈。所以里面有座對着鹽池的望海樓,望着對面的鹽湖同山脈,看起來比較肅穆。
裡面還带有鹽業博物館,可是两側偏房都關著門,整體地方挺大的但遊客只有我一个,綠樹不少幽静适合静心,門票30元門口也沒有售票處,走進去後旁邊院子出來一個人說要收門票,問幾錢答15,回去給我拿了張票一看是半價票,覺得蛮溫暖的可能人家當我學生。

Yuncheng Museum

Reviewed By 子瀟 陳 - Hong Kong, China

這個景點要打滿分,來之前不報期望沒想到建設的如此之好。一棟獨立新建的建築外圍有足夠大的停車場同廣場供市民休憩。整體建築大門有古代建築的造型設計,內部都很現代,應該是運城目前最現代的建築了。
來運城遊玩一定要前來參觀,不需要門票費用,共有三層可以全面細緻的了解運城的古往今來,特別是古代這裡出了很多名人墨客。裡面的展示水準也同一線城市沒有區別,各種不同的造型和設計別出新意,特別是古代的展館美輪美奐,讓人忍不住拍了很多照片。

作為城市的後花園,鳳凰谷的定位不算是大型的自然景區,但是近兩年不斷的開發,改造,環境得到了改善。因為位於城市週邊,門票便宜,所以可以作為健身的去處,親近大自然,每週都去。現在又開發了歡樂谷景區,是小孩遊樂玩耍的地方。夏季夜晚經常舉辦消夏晚會。景區環境越來越好,管理也比以往規範多了!

Yuncheng Yellow River Ancient Ferry

Reviewed By 子瀟 陳 - Hong Kong, China

運城具體說應該是運城下轄的幾個縣市同陝西河南接壤的三省交界,黃河塑造了三省的界限.古代也成為了漕運貿易人口等轉運的黃金地帶.不過如今在前去只剩下凋敝和黃河水靜靜的流淌啦.可能因為現代社會交通發達,公路可以直達四方。
所以只剩下歷史可以懷想,運城黃河古渡以蒲津渡大禹渡茅津渡風陵渡最為有名,不僅歷史悠久,坐個小船渡過去就到另一個省了。

位於運城市市中心商業區域的步行街,二層設置,面積算挺大的。售賣的商品都是和日常生活相關的窗簾家廳裝飾日常小雜貨等,周邊也是繁華地帶所以遊客如果到訪運城相必都會路過,不過就沒有必要去參觀。
