Discover a bustling district where you can get a real feel of everyday Beijing life as well as enjoying impressive historic, cultural and entertainment attractions.
Fengtai is one of Beijing’s most interesting districts. Among the high-rise buildings so characteristic of the city’s skyline are beautiful parks, poignant memorial statues, fascinating museums, fun amusement parks and historical sites, which serve as reminders of the capital’s rich past. Take a few days to get to know Fengtai and all it has to offer.
The district’s most famous landmark is the Lugou Bridge, known commonly as the Marco Polo Bridge because of its mention in the author’s book. Proud, finely carved lions line the 874-foot (267-meter) long solid granite bridge, which stretches across the Yongding River. While the architectural beauty of the bridge is undoubted, the bridge holds a more somber place in the minds of Beijingers. It was on this very bridge that the 8-year-long Sino-Japanese War broke out on July 7, 1937. Walk slowly across the bridge and take in the poignancy of this beautiful yet somber place.
Learn more about the devastating war at the nearby Museum of the War of Chinese People's Resistance Against Japanese Aggression, where there are over 10,000 artifacts related to the war on display. The Sculpture Garden of the Chinese People's Anti-Japanese War is a serene place of contemplation.
Continue your cultural explorations of Fengtai at the Dabaotai Western Han Dynasty Tomb Museum. Venture into the 2,000-year-old underground palace of Liu Jian, the Guanyang Prince of the Western Han Dynasty. Also of historical significance is the Lotus Pool and Zhengang Pagoda.
For something more lighthearted and family friendly, head to Beijing World Park to view miniature versions of the world’s greatest landmarks. Or, enjoy a relaxing day in Qinglonghu Park where swimming, a water park and fruit picking will keep the children entertained.
Fengtai is located on the southwestern fringes of Beijing, about 9 miles (15 kilometers) southwest of Tiananmen Square. It is served by the subway and a plethora of buses. Don’t leave without trying one of the many restaurants here, which serve cuisine from all across China.
