The statue is pretty impressive, but the fountain only gets turned on during festivals and for visiting diplomats. Otherwise, this is a pretty plain plaza with no real attractions. There's a Starbucks or a McDonald's cafe nearby where you can buy some coffee, and in...More

It's a beautiful square with many flowers and plants and a centerpiece of the elephant statue. Unfortunately the fountains were turned off. Apart from that, there is not much to see. The Dream World Department Store is not far away and worth a visit -...More

Just a city square in a city. Don't go out of your way to see this. But if you walking by then it doesn't hurt to stop and take a few photos

Nothing to see or do here other than the photo of the elephant. There's a ring of office buildings and restaurants around it but it's mostly skin deep. Going a block or more past it in any direction is pretty much a maze of high...More

I think the city originally intended this to become the new central square if the city, but please don't quote me on that, because it seems highly unlikely. There goes bad city planning. The place is uneventful and we pretty much only went here to...More

From a height overlooking the landscape was pretty good.This Square is surrounded by banks and office buildings including the International Chamber Of Commerce Tower.

It's pretty much just a giant elephant structure in the middle of town. Not a lot going on, therefore...take a picture and walk away? There's a KTV, Mcdonald's, Starbucks close by though if you just wanted to hang out for an hour or so.
