Here, the mode of "crossing the river and demolishing the bridge" is staged every day. The regular opening is only for boats to pass, and the regular closing is for pedestrians to cross the river. On this bridge, there is a pavilion almost every 30 meters, all of which are in ancient Chinese architectural style. Each pavilion has a different shape, and each pavilion has a very classical name, such as: "Lingxiao" , "appreciating the rain", "dengying"...
