If you are a newbie in Manzhouli City, or a tourist passing through, I’m happy to recommend you to hang out one night to look at the splendid night views of the exotic and largest border city in China, a border crossing which connects China, Russia and Mongolia.
Beautifully Lit up Buildings
Manzhouli has the mixed folk custom of the three countries including China, Russia and Mongolia, a blend of Chinese and Western cultures. The city is crisscrossed with intriguing buildings of Russian, European, Mongolian and Chinese styles.
At nightfall, all the 162 buildings of different styles lined on the 12 streets in the city center, are lit up brightly, turning the remote and far-flung border city into an otherworldly wonderland.
Beihu Park Skyline at Night
Beihu Park is a perfect place for an evening stroll while enjoying its brilliant night skyline. Beihu Park, literally “North Lake Park”, is located north of the Fifth Avenue in the city center of Manzhouli.
Its lake shoreline is set in brilliant lights with high-rises standing above, also brightly lightened, posing the magnificent night skyline in Manzhouli. The Beihu Park skyline is not to be dwarfed by the world-famous Pudong Skyline. It’s worth your visit on your night trip.
The Lively Pedestrian Street in the Evening
What makes Manzhouli unique is not only its exotic buildings, but also the mixed diversity of its people. Yes, the pedestrian street, officially known as “Sino-Russian Street”, is a bit touristy, but it is really a nice place, especially in summer. You sit down at a cafe and just enjoy people watch.
You will see beautiful Russian girls standing on the street for photo taking; Russian women sit on the street-side benches for relaxation; lovers, family members, friends or lonely travelers all come together, creating a peaceful night view.
The street makes a lovely walk in the evening and offers a great opportunity for Street photography.
A Panoramic View of Manzhouli at Night
Yingshan Orthodox Church is a good spot for a bird’s-eye view of an overall view of Manzhouli City. The church is perched high on Yingshan Hill, about 5km southeast of the Sino-Russian Pedestrian Street.
Yingshan Orthodox Church is a newly built landmark, a replica of Russian-style orthodox church. It is mainly used for holding local wedding ceremonies and tourist sightseeing as well.
Standing on the high compound of Yinshan Church, people can have a clear and overall view of Hanzhouli City. The best time to view the whole city is in the evening when neon and lights are lit up on the streets and buildings.
Any questions, just drop a line.
