Congtai and Zhaoyuan parksDuring my first trip to China, I noticed that the Chinese are real master gardeners. Therefore, in every city I go, I try to look at local parks. In this regard, I was pleasantly surprised in Handan: there are a lot of beautiful well-kept parks.
The most famous park in the city is Congtai (丛台公园 - Cóngtái gōngyuán). In 1999, it got shortlisted in "100 most famous parks in China". In 2007, it was rated AAAA as a tourist attraction. Later in different years, it received several more titles, including "one of the top 10 parks in Hebei Province". The entrance to the park is free.
