Chinese-style “camping”

This announcement on a local website for ex-pats:

camping

Two parks along Hunhe River in downtown Shenyang will open campingsites.

浑河沿岸的两大公园将设置帐篷区。

In the west of Shengli (shèng lì) Bridge, Changbaidao (cháng bái dǎo) Forest Park’s campingsite is located on the southern bank of the river with a total area of 50,000 sqm.

长白岛森林公园的帐篷区已初步划定,位于浑河南岸胜利桥西侧,占地5万平方米。

The other place you can pitch a tent is in Shenshuiwan (shěn shuǐ wān)Park.

沈水湾公园也将规划帐篷区。

But for safety, people can’t stay overnight or barbecue in the campgrounds.

鉴于安全考虑,帐篷区严禁烧烤,也不可过夜。

 So, the camping trip goes like this: we go to the park, pitch our tents, not light campfires, and when it gets dark, we pack up our tents, go home and sleep in our own beds.

I swear to God I am not making this up. Here’s the URL:

    This is truly far and away one of the strangest things you’ve posted describing life in Shenyang.
