one friend of mine told me about a place with outdoor swimming pools and slides for kids she called Qin Long Swimming Pool. She doesn't remember exactly where it is and how to get there. Do you know about it? Maybe this is not the exact name.
Thanks for your help
There's an XIBF event at Qin Long on the 30th:
we went there yesterday with the kids and it was great. It's South of Xi'an, near the zoo, about 40 minutes from my place (North Gaoxin). The place is Qin Long Spa Hotel. There is a specific entrance for the swimming pool area. Entrance is 98 rmb for adults, free for kids. There is a chinese restaurant and they also sell drinks and biscuits. You can also bring your own food as there are some tables to have lunch. There wasn't too much people although it was saturday. Maybe because of the price of the entrance and because it's not in the city and you need a car to go there. So it was very good.
I have been looking for such kind of place since ages!
And it is just 23 km away from my place (Gaoxing, TaiBai Nan Lu / Keji Lu) !
Just 30 minutes by my scooter.
Can you please give a little more detailed description where this location can be found ?
I am frequently close to the zoo (Quinling Wildlife Park) and several places for fishing around there, but never saw this Quinlong Spa Hotel.
I think this place will never be overcrowded, as Chinese people don't like places like this when the sun is shining.
They are terribly afraid of getting a sun-tan and so they prefer staying home, drinking warm beer and cold coffee :-)
