I would head to the Minority Museum. It's a bit of a trek across town, but something you won't see in other Chinese cities. Maybe take a taxi Don't bother with the Minority Park opposite the Museum, which is a faked-up thing.

I went to the forest today with my young son and two of his classmates. We were let in by the guard after the usual signing in with phone number and we headed up the hill. However, an hour or so later, as we were playing harmlessly amongst the trees, he tracked us down and said we were not allowed to be in the woods, only to visit the temple. He said it was a fire risk. I pointed out that don't smoke, it had rained heavily the day before and the kids were simply hunting for twigs and insects. But he insisted it was his job to remove people and that the forest opened again officially on June 15th (ie rainy season, no fire risk). I told him I was really disappointed but I understood he was just doing as he was told. We left. Maybe he was just having a bad day (we've been 20+ times before and never been kicked out) but be warned.

I was dreading an article like this coming out one day. My young son and I head here most weeks for the solitude and fresh air. We've always considered it our secret discovery! (If you do find the gazebo, check behind it for our home-made mouse house!!) I do hope it doesn't get too swamped with picnickers! It is a delightful spot.

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.

I arranged an airport pick-up with John and he was very flexible and good value. When I had to cancel the arrangement at short notice, he was fine with it. Seems very professional.

I thought this "No.57" restaurant is where Teresa's (WenLinJie) used to be, but I rechecked and that is "No.72" restaurant!

Nice ambience in this place. Service was good and the pizza was very tasty (if expensive ... 60-110RMB for a mediam sized). The durian cheesecake was unusual but good (and I'm not a huge durian fan). Just a shame they haven't thought about making one of the eating areas non-smoking.
