It is not the original piece of stone bridge, but an imitated one; Water in the river is not nice; it's good to have a see only together with Bailin temple, for they are close to each other in Zhaoxian county;

I'm giving this five stars as it relates to Shijiazhuang. Obviously, the Zhaozhou Bridge doesn't compare to say, the Great Wall. However, it's historically relevant as the oldest standing bridge in China. The grounds surrounding the bridge are nice, statues, pagodas, trees, etc. Obviously, a trip during spring or summer would be best. I saw crowds mentioned, but we went... More

Interesting place to visit and well worth a trip if you're staying in Shijiazhuang. We went early to beat the crowds as we were told it is a popular destination to visit.

Really nice ancient stone bridge, but very popular with local tourists so there are quite a lot of people around. Worth a trip if you're already in the Shijiazhuang area.

This bridge is bigger than you imagine and is a great venue for a day trip! The walk through the park (beautiful with lots of flowers) to get to the bridge is lovely and there are many places to take photos from. Souvenirs can be bought near the bridge. Plan to spend at least 3 hours there if you have... More

This is one of the oldest arched bridge made of stones. The bridge is over 50 meters long and almost 10 meters wide. The span of its largest stone arch in the middle is about 40 meters. The bridge was built in 581-618. The view around the bridge is stunning. It definitely worth to go there and have a look.

We visited back in 2007, and made the side trip to see this Bridge, made fairly famous due to its extremely difficult engineering. It was a pleasant drive, and we enjoyed the vendors and people who tended the place. I would return.

This is an excellent piece of work where stones are joined by steel plates. Today also bridge condition is very nice. Surrounding area is made like good tourist place. One must visit this place and seeing is believeing. You can also buy local items as there are shops in the complex.

Very enjoyable, quiet and peaceful. A nice visit. The bridge is quite simple, but the area walking up to it, along with the sculptures are really beautiful. If going during the summer (like I did) be sure to have sunscreen or an umbrella to block the sun. Once on the bridge, you are in direct sunlight.

It was suggested as a "day off work" visit - oldest bridge in the world etc. Actually not the oldest - maybe oldest location but bridge is concrete! Its nice to see and the location etc. is pretty good - BUT biggest problem was I am European so spent nearly all my time being photographed with local Chinese visitors. After... More
