Great place to visit. Avoid going in summer as it gets very hot and there is no shade anywhere. A lot of things to see and a lot of steps so make sure you give yourself time.

Best spot to visit in Luoyang and it’s simply a masterpiece. It could be cold in winter so bring warm clothes. English Guide is also available if you need one and it’s not expensive. Wonderful memory.
