The city's only water park, which only opens for the summer season, makes a fun day trip, with its selection of rapids, water-top assault courses and eight water-slides - the longest of which is 150 metres. The 50-metre man-made beach features Asia's largest wave machine, and is usually packed with hundreds of people in questionable swimwear bobbing in rubber rings. Our main complaints are the steep prices. Ticket prices are 160-280RMB per entry for adults, plus 50RMB to rent an inflatable and 20RMB for a locker - and the unappetizing fast food (think 10RMB small pizzas and chicken nuggets).
