Jingyue Lake is a favourite getaway for city folks in Changchun City .It is a refreshing large parkland and lake less than 25km away.
Swathes of birch ,maple trees and coniferous pines forest surround the scenic Jingyue Lake .It is frozen now with winter sports and sleighs.
Different type of sleighs are available in here. We started with huskies dogs .
After that we rode on a horse sleigh .We drove on a lake buggy and rode on cycle skate too .
The scenic views of Jingyue replicate a wintery alpine ambiance in Europe.The temperate foliage and lake activities are pleasant and peaceful.We enjoyed our visit in this attraction in Changchun City.

The emperor's palace was undergoing restoration when we were there. However they only restore one building at a time, so there was still lots to see. The palace grounds are covered in paths, with beautiful flowers, sculptures and Fountains. Inside the palace are many historical exhibits. Almost everything is written in English and Chinese. Everyone behind a counter can speak English fluently enough that you do not need to be able to speak Chinese.

Was at 长春世界雕塑公园 (Changchun World Sculpture Park) - it has been upgrade to 5star site this year) on 14 May.
To get there~
Walked to Light Rail Line 3, Liaoning station (辽宁站）from Jinjiang Inn, Changchun Train Station. Took 16 stations to 卫星广场。Walk about 15-20 mins to World Sculpture Park.
Took a cab from there back to Changchun Train Station ~ ¥25
Park & Sculptures ~
Huge park. Operational since Sept, 2003, wow, almost 14 years and it is still very well-maintained.
Sculptures by Rodin, Michaelangelo, Chinese/Russian/sculptors etc. You need 2-3 hrs to finish the entire park in a leisurely manner. It was raining rather heavily when we were there, thus we only saw part of the park and had to leave.
We were a little disappointed as the beautiful lake in pictures we saw before this visit was gone as they were trying to clear some mud that settled at the bottom of the lake so that the lake water would look clearer according to the tourists' office staff. Therefore, we couldn't get very nice pictures.
We prefer Last Manchu Emperor Puyi's Palace and War Museum next to Puyi's Palace. (Please see our other review). Allow me to digress: however, if to compare War Museum in Changchun with Unit 731 Museum in Harbin, the latter was even better especially for the western visitors, write ups in English was better and clearer, the entire presentation was extremely organised.

Changchun on the Songhua Plain is only 200 years old, yet it has a population of over 8M residents and is the capital of Jilin province. In the NE part of the city are the many separate buildings and houses of the puppet emperor, Puyi.
The museum was a home built by the Japanese for Puyi, his wives, and associates. Room after room are artifacts and photos of his daily activities and his 3 wives. Though his third and last wife was slim and attractive, he was not close to her as he thought she was beneath him in education and deportment.
The 3-dimensional mock-ups were interesting and authentic.
This museum motivated me to re-visit "The Last Emperor."

Movie Wonderland was.... interesting. From a theme-park visitor from way back, this was nothing like any park I have visited.
The "rides" were not thrill rides, but more... passive. The Haunted House was decidedly regional-fair-esque, yet Chinese Teens were being removed in tears, and nearly every corner had someone scared out of their wits. Most of the "rides" involved long queues followed by sitting and watching something. One "ride" involved walking into a room with 150 people, listening to some Chinese narration while a light show followed, then walking into another room for a green-screen demonstration.
The only "ride" with an actual ride was a space ride, which if you have back problems, I would avoid like the plague. The 4D movie was interesting, and probably the best "ride" in the place.
During winter only one ride is open at a time, so everyone in the park moves between the open rides, leading to super long queues.
It was a really expensive activity at 200 Yuan, far more than anything else we did, and I do not think it good value.

In mid-February the zoo is a pretty desolate place, most of the exhibits kept inside and the garden areas all covered in deep snow. However for only 30RMB the zoo is a good day out, the animals seem well cared for, clean and the exhibition areas are modern and spacious. In the summer there is a funfair for the kids and large landscaped areas to explore too. All in all quite satisfactory.

Very beautiful when I arrived there hahaha)) It was just the ripe season for peony to blossom, right after spring that is, in the summer. Next up, there are small Bridges over troubled water everywhere there whilst seeing green trees and bushes...just plain awesome!

Nice park, but due to construction works at the entrance, in the park and in the neighborhood, several ways and areas are blocked.
Besides, it is small, there are people but not to much. There is also a fair area, so if you look for a silent place, it is hard to find.
