The new Daping Mountain greenway demonstration section in Quanzhou opened to the public for free on November 1st. Tourists can now pass through the greenway either by bike or on foot. The greenway includes a 4.04-kilometer pedestrian path and a 4.01-kilometer bike path. A series of beautiful scenic spots are dotted along the road including a luminous promenade, a glass skywalk, a giant Zheng Chenggong Statue, and much more.


Glass skywalk

 

As the most exciting part of the greenway, the glass skywalk is a must-see. Those brave enough to step out onto the glass must first don a pair of protective disposable galoshes, available for sale on site. Special tips for girls: don’t wear a skirt if you plan to walk on the skywalk, as there's a pedestrian pathway beneath it.

 

 


Luminous promenade

 

The luminous promenade, located between Shanhou village (in Baoshan community) and Forest Park (森林公园), is 560 meters in length. It’s the first luminous promenade in China. After absorbing sunlight throughout the day, the luminous promenade can glow for more than eight hours at night and then gradually fades. The luminous promenade has three colors: luminous blue and yellow-green, and non-luminous dark gray. It’s possible to “draw” on the promenade with a flashlight at night; shine a light on the surface and a minute or two later the surface will glow.

 

 


Guan Hai Lan Sheng

 

Guan Hai Lan Sheng is a building built from ancient beacon towers. Standing near the Guan Hai Lan Sheng gives one a wide view of Quanzhou’s scenery, including Baoshan Garden (宝珊花园), the Luoyang River (洛阳江), New District (城东新区), Qingyuan Mountain (清源山), and the Zheng Chenggong statue.

 


Zheng Chenggong Statue

 

The Zheng Chenggong Statue on Quanzhou Daping Mountain is 38 meters in height including its eight-meter-high base. It is 166.2 meters above sea level.
