Drive for about 1 hour to the Lugou Bridge, which is located in the southwest of Beijing across the Yongding River-flows through five provinces, autonomous regions and municipalities, spans 170 km within Beijing and runs through five districts in the west and south of the city. The Venetian traveler Marco Polo highly praised the bridge as "Over this river there is a very fine stone bridge, so fine indeed, that it has very few equals in the world" during his visit to China in the 13th century, so the Lugou Bridge is also known as the Marco Polo Bridge in Europe. The Lugou Bridge is 266.5 m in length and 9.3 m in width, 627 intriguing stone lions line both sides of the bridge, the posture of each lion is varied, being famed for its aesthetic features, Lugou Bridge is considered to be an architectural masterpiece.
Situated at the eastern end of the Lugou Bridge is the Wanping Castle, a historic 17th century fortress, it was erected to defend Beijing against the peasant uprising. The Wanping Town is a half-square shaped "walled city" with two gates, the east gate was originaly named Ever Prosperous Gate, then renamed to Majestic Gate, and the west gate is Favorably Govern Gate, the Memorial Hall of the Chinese People's War of Resistance Against Japanese Aggression (or the Memorial Hall of the Chinese People's Anti-Japanese War) in Wanping City is a large war museum with the theme of "keeping history in mind and loving peace while ushering in future," for an exhibition on the war and world people's victory over fascism.
