Riverside Scenic Park Qīngmíng Garden information
High on historical kitsch, this theme park is a recreation of Zeduan’s famous Qingming painting. It’s brought to life with roving staff in Song-era costumes, cultural performances, folk art and music demonstrations. If you can get over the number of souvenir stalls, there’s fun to be had (there’s a wedding ceremony and even a mock naval battle with pyrotechnics, out on the lake). The night ticket allows entry during the day and a seat for a colourful night performance (8.10pm) out on the lake.
