Located in Wanping City, where the Lugou Bridge Incident happened, the Memorial Museum of Chinese People’s Sino-Japanese War is the only specialised memorial museum which exhibits and reflects the Sino-Japanese War in all aspects. The main buildings of the museum are divided into three parts: the major hall, the material center and the traditional Chinese courtyard house in the north and south. To date, the museum has held about 30 special-topic exhibitions and has gathered over 10,000 pieces of collections about the war. In the front of the museum is a square of 8,600 square meters (about 10,285.5 sq yd) where a Lugou Awake Lion stands symbolizing the disillusion of the Chinese people.

Qinglonghu Park, covering an area of about 0.26 sq mi, is located on the bank of Qilong River which is about 20 km (about 12.4 mi) from Beijing city. The beautiful scenery in the park attracts a large number of tourists. Outdoor beach bathing area, fruit picking garden, water amusement facility and other distinctive places provides a relaxing paradise. In the fruit picking garden, there are over 20 species of fruit to pick and taste. Moreover, Farm-house Enjoyment Tourism here provides particular Chinese rural dishes.

Zhengang Pagoda, first built in the Jin Dynasty (1115-1234), is 18 meters (about 59 ft) in height and 24 meters (about 78.7 ft) in perimeter at the base. It is delicately carved with the patterns of warriors, civilians, flowers and the heads of beasts on the tower body. On each of the floors stands the statue of Buddha, some with hands crossed and some with hands extending up.

You must refer to the Orient MGM International Conference & Exhibition Hotel. If so, the hotel itself has Chinese and western dining halls, where you can taste very good food!
