This university for Chinese is like Yale for us. So all Chinese tourists want to visit it. To enter the university don't forget your passport. Walk through it and a tunnel will take like 2 hours.

A huge campus with impressive business, gardens full of colors and smells plus a delightful lake: plenty of tourists around as well!
