Interesting place to visit and well worth a trip if you're staying in Shijiazhuang. We went early to beat the crowds as we were told it is a popular destination to visit.

We visited back in 2007, and made the side trip to see this Bridge, made fairly famous due to its extremely difficult engineering. It was a pleasant drive, and we enjoyed the vendors and people who tended the place. I would return.
