E31***42Last winter vacation, I and my parents had a wonderful time on Mountain Tai, the most famous of the five great mountains.It is located in Tai'an where my grandpa and grandma live. On the foot of Mountain Tai, there is a deep pool called Black Dragon Pool. Its water was dark green. It looked like a mysterious prince. There is a legend that the water of Black Dragon Pool can flow into the Baotu Spring in Jinan. If you throw a coin into this pool, you can find it in Baotu Spring. We played therefor a long time with happiness.Then, we took a bus to the beginning of the hike. To climb on the top of the mountain, it was a long way ahead of us. Thoughmuch energy was burned, we don't feel tired. The beautiful scene on the top of the mountain gave us motivation. Finally, we got the top of the mountain. The road behind us seemed to be almost flat. Wow, a fantastic painting appeared to us. There was sea of clouds. The fog covered the mountain, and there was a faint view of the rolling hills and the looming cable car.What an amazing scene it was!
京王子郑（ZZ）We visited the ancient city of Taierzhuang south of Shandong province in early March. It is a very worthwhile place to visit. Recommend staying here for a night to see different views and activities during the day and at night. Taierzhuang is located at the junction of Jiangsu and Shandong, south of Zaozhuang and 30 kilometers east of Xuzhou. The longest and oldest canal in the world runs through the whole territory, and is also the hub of North-South water transport. Unfortunately, the road is not very convenient at the end of the high speed (whether from the north to the new Tai Expressway, or from the provincial road Xingtai, or from the south to Xuzhou, all over a 30-kilometer detour, and heavy trucks, high risk of traffic accidents). From Beijing all the way to the high speed not many vehicles, very smooth, but after the Zaozhuang, the speed limit greatly reduced, although along the Grand Canal, beautiful all the way, but the speed limit traps a lot, drive must be careful observation. This is the Grand Canal transportation hub, since ancient times has an important strategic role, is the battleground of the soldiers. Ancient has a heavy military garrison, Emperor Qianlong several times down the Jiangnan also stop here, so it is an ancient city. And the war against Japan famous Taierzhuang Great Victory is also completed here. It is said that the great victory, also the national army used several times the cost of the Japanese army casualties. Arrive at noon or 2pm (I mean the early March season) so you can spend more than 5 hours before the night viewing, including dinner. In particular, take the time to visit the site of the bloodbath in Taierzhuang, close your eyes and imagine the battlefield filled with smoke; worship the tens of thousands of martyrs who have given their lives here. We leave Beijing at 6:00 a.m. (just the day of my limited number) and arrive at the hotel in the ancient city at 14:00 (stay at the Lake Light Moon Inn, near the East Gate, on the lake, it is very convenient to enter and exit the East Gate, I would like to recommend it). The car can't drive into the ancient city. There is a large parking lot outside the East Gate. You can find a location near the East Gate early. Otherwise, it is really more troublesome to pull your suitcase into the ancient city. It is also necessary to find a hotel near the East Gate. Check-in can be stopped and stopped for sightseeing along the way. There is an ancient city map at the gate, and you can slowly play from east to west according to the map. Because the Spring Festival is just after, this is the off-season, there are not many people in the ancient city (it is said that it will start to increase again at the end of April). Remember that in the east of Fuxing Square, this is the center of the cruise ship's downing, and the place where the evening "steel flowers" (low-height fireworks) and the Canglong balls are performed. Opposite the square is the Fuxing Building with the words "Tai Er Zhuang". At night, the building lights up and reflects on the river that separates Fuxing Square from Fuxing Building. At the west gate, you can take a cruise ship back to Fuxing Square. The cruise ship is hung with red lanterns, the boat lady in red clothes, while rowing and explaining. Walking through several arch bridges, it's a different taste to take pictures.
