Kaifeng Ancient City in Henan, a must-visit popular attraction

In ancient times, Bianliang and Bianjing were called "Bianjing", which is one of the seven ancient capitals in China and has a history of more than 3000 years.

Drum Tower Night Market

The night market at Drum Tower Square starts at 5:30 and gradually expands with small stalls. It becomes bustling between 8:00 and 9:00, offering a wide variety of snacks and delicacies, with aromatic scents. The vendors here have great voices and offer a wide array of delicious snacks. It's a bit overwhelming for someone like me who fancies food.
A large-scale theme park based on the Song Dynasty culture was built, with the famous Song Dynasty painting "Along the River During the Qingming Festival" as its blueprint. The park includes 8 functional areas and 4 cultural areas, faithfully restoring the scenes from the painting. The Southern Garden recreates the bustling streets of ancient Tokyo, while the Northern Garden showcases the royal gardens and court entertainment of the Song Dynasty, with magnificent architectural structures. The park staff dress in Song Dynasty costumes, creating an immersive experience. In addition, there are also exciting performances.

Longting Park

Located at the northern end of Zhongshan Road in Kaifeng City, this ancient architectural complex, designed according to the layout of the Qing Wanshou Palace, was once the site of the imperial city of the Northern Song Dynasty. From the stone railings, one can overlook the scenery of the ancient city. Inside the hall, there are displayed cultural relics. This place is world-famous for its chrysanthemum appreciation. Every year during the golden autumn season, a chrysanthemum festival is held, and the park is filled with magnificent and vibrant chrysanthemums in various shapes and colors.
During the Northern Song Dynasty, Kaifeng Fu was the administrative and judicial institution in the capital city, known as the "capital of the world". According to historical records, there were 183 magistrate officials in Kaifeng Fu during the Northern Song Dynasty, including Kou Zhun, Bao Zheng, Ouyang Xiu, Fan Zhongyan, Su Shi, Sima Guang, Cai Xiang, and Zong Ze. Bao Zheng, also known as Bao Qingtian, was particularly famous for presiding over the southern yamen of Kaifeng Fu.
