Travel Information

Although travel agencies always tell you that security is very strict in China, it is no problem at all to reach this spot at night. You have to walk through several security checks but it was no problem to bring all my photography gear (including the tripod) with me.
Looking at the picture you could assume that I was there alone, but there were hundreds of other people there taking pictures. So you have to be patient to get the best spot for your tripod.
The best way to get there is by metro and then walk.
