This is one of the main squares of downtown Lanzhou, I found it a little under whelming especially the little fences meaning you can't walk on the grass! There was a good variety of western shops and at night there was a night market at the edge of it. One of those places you have to see to believe.

This is the main Square of Lanzhou. There is nothing special apart from a large number of white doves. You can buy food for them, and they will eat it from your hands. Also you can find here Pizza Hut, KFC and а big shopping center.

A large square outside a mall that includes Starbucks, Bread Talk, mid to high end shops and a movie theater. On a sunny day you can check out grandmas and grandchildren playing with bubbles and watch a performance by the towns' elderly performers.

A good place to watch Lanzhou pass by, or grab a bite, or visit an excellent grocery store (in the basement of the central building in the square, at least for now...nearby buildings have been demolished for fancy malls, so this one's days may be numbered). Pigeons love this place too, and if you have kids you can buy feed... More

This is def one of the nicer spots in Lanzhou. Pizza hut one of the few Intl brands to date in Lanzhou is located here. Annoying is the smell but that's the case in many places all over town. Pollution however is far from the problem you are made to believe on the www, at least in Lanzhou you have... More

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... More
