Anshun Nine Eye Bridge
Things to do in
Perhaps best enjoyed during the evening hours, not simply for the view but also the nightlife in the surrounding pedestrian areas. Find a pub, restaurant, or other entertainment in good proximity to the Sichuan Conservatory of Music.
Known as the Nine Eye Bridge or the Dongmen Bridge, its history is a little complicated as it has enjoyed a number of names through the last few hundred years and even reconstruction in 2003 following flood damage. It is also said to be the largest stone arch bridge on the Jinjiang River, the name "Dongmen" suggests its significance as a western gateway into the city.
As with many attractions of China, the cities which host them are gigantic and sprawling. If you're not enjoying a private vehicle or guided tour, you may wish to take Metro Line 2 to either Dongmen Station and walk the river or to alight at Niuwangmiao Station and walk the 15-20 minutes through the less picturesque sidestreets of Chengdu.
