He-Long Park (贺龙公园) @ Zhangjiajie (张家界), Hunan

My mom introducing the park

He-Long Park must be the dull-est place in the whole of Zhangjiajie!!

All the way (40 minutes) just to see a  bronze statue of a man that was totally ALIEN to me!!

Okay, not really all the way... since the park was actually en route to the cable car station; a necessary mode to bring us down to the foot of the mountain!

Speaking of He-Long, he was a damn famous man. 

My parents in front of the statue.
Might as well take a picture although we knew nuts about him.

Borned as a member of the Tujia minority, he was made Vice Premier after the founding of the People's Republic of China. Big Shot leh....

More of him can be read from HERE.

Despite the boredom, it was with blessing that the weather was really cooling and the scenery was really beautiful with a touch of mystery surrounding the various peaks!

The most interesting thing for this park?

Kids borned in the early 1980s or late 1970s should remember the "Journey to the West" drama serial from China. Remember the scene where the White Bone Spirit was battling with Sun Wukong?

Looks familiar?
