“Good Place!”
Reviewed 17 July 2012

Dongfanghong is Lanzhou's city square - it's a nice, open, and clean place in a very compact, and at times, very dirty city. It's a pretty place, full of decorative horticulture and there are underground shops nearby and a handful of restaurants. You can have your picture taken there, although, like Tiananmen, it's expensive, and also like Tiananmen, if you're a foreigner, your picture and info is sent to the police station (if you believe that kind of thing).

That little bit aside, it's a great place to spend an hour or two either by yourself or with friends!

Visit if you have the time!

“Nice area...”
Reviewed 11 June 2012

We walked to the square from our hotel (The Ledison) and it was a nice concrete area with grass. We also enjoyed the underground mall that is located in the square. There were escalators to use. It seemed to go on forever and we enjoyed exploring there. In the underground mall there was a play area for kids and different vendors set up selling their wares.
