Shi Du (lit. 10 crossings ie river crossings) is about 100km from Beijing and popular as a weekend day trip destination. It's known as Beijing's answer to Guilin and features loads of sedimentary hills/mountains around a pretty river.
As with many places in China, natural beauty is not enough. So here we have the main feature for most visitors: cable car, bungee jumping, flying fox to cross the river and boating!
The most common ways of reaching Shi Du are by car or train from Beijing. The train leaves from the little visited
Beijing South Railway Station

Nice photo with a clean foreground to enjoy many details of this river park, funny to see how they turned this area into a kind of disneyland, I like the cable cars and the small pagoda on the hill, the several layers of mountains gradually disappearing in the distance are a splendid background.
Have a nice daw,

Amazing sight of this interesting place.
The POV is great as we can have a good overview of the area. I like those foggy mountains on the foreground.

Very nice overview of the area. It tells a story like all good photos should. The colour at thee bottom and the brightness of the island add interest to an nice looking background. Because of its many aspects, it would be hard to post-process this photo without losing some of its quality. I might have zoomed in or out (probably out) a little to give the eye a little less clutter but again, that might just ruin it.

Great clarity that shows the many details in the photo. It is a very nice capture of daily life.
