I'd have prayed to the rain gods for a few day-long showers like this during the drought years. But now it's all got a bit much. My neighbourhood even has green grass now!!

True. the best thing about the "civilisation" for me has been the repair of 3-4 roads I often take whose potholes used to shake my e-bike to bits. Now asphalted flat. Bliss.

For those who remember the zoo as it was 4-5 years ago, there are definitely some improvements. The lion, tiger and elephant enclosures are much better than the old concrete cages. The various deer have more space too. The "monkey mountain" and wildfowl pond are actually quite nice. Sure, if you hate the idea of zoos then obviously avoid this one. But otherwise ...well, I've seen a lot worse in China.

Hole-in-the-wall XiaoLongBaoZi (dumplings) joints are all very well for grabbing a snack, but if you want to see and taste how good they can really be, I highly recommend this restaurant. Sure, you pay a bit more but the service is attentive, you see the dumplings being made and they taste fantastic. I ordered a tray of 8. then another 8 and then yet another! Well worth the visit.

The road up to the Temple is OK for cars and e-bikes, if a little bumpy. The temple itself is great - large, interesting and very quiet. No ticket, great views, worth the trip. I took off one star as there's a lot of building work at the rear but no real issue.

I took my 4 year old for his first experience of bowling. They have no "inflatable sausages" to go in the gutters, so 95% of his throws/rolls hit nothing. Also, no kids' shoes or small balls. We asked if they host birthday parties and were told no. Lots of smokers there too. So cheap enough, and everything worked, but not one for kids.

Quiet and rarely visited place. You can drive an e-bike up to the temple if you're careful. Sometimes shut if the guards are in a bad mood.
