After entering, the first thing that you would notice is the different types of colourful old school bicycles or trishaws. Nowadays, these types of trishaws are very rare. But here you not only get the opportunity to visit this Trishaw but also you can ride them.
It’s a fun way to cover the whole park by riding a trishaw. You’ll get many trishaws options like single, family, couple, and tandem trishaws. Couple-bikes come with two seats, while Family-bikes have four seats, and they are 4-wheel-bike.
These trishaws rides are free, but you have to carry them by yourself. Paddling the bicycles can be your most memorable experience at Qing Xin Ling. So bring your group and choose the one you like.
2. Write Your Wish
This cultural village contains a huge old Banyan tree, just in the middle of the park. The tree is considered as a ”Wishing Tree“. It is really fascinating and fun to make wishes and tie them on the tree, as done in the traditional Chinese period.
So here, you can relive the Chinese tradition by writing your wish on a red ribbon. You’ll get the red ribbon near the tree, and then you have to write the wish on it. But you cannot tie it to the tree. You have to hand over your ribbon to the staff who are available there. Then the staff will do the rest, and you’ll see your wishing ribbon hanging on the Banyan tree.
3. Take Your Instagram Shot
Though some parts of the Qing Xin Ling will remind you about the past generation, nowadays, all that matters is to take some outstanding pictures and short videos for your Instagram, Snapchat, and other social media.
After entering the Qing Xin Ling Leisure Park, you will be amazed by the decoration of nature. The place is perfect for fulfilling your wish to snap some iconic pictures. Almost every part of this leisure park can give you unique pictures. All you need to do is give poses and take the perfect shot.

If you are from the 60s, 70s, or 80s, this section of the park will make you nostalgic. And you can point to your next generation what you have used during those days.
On the lakeside chalet house as well as around the village, they have a vast collection of antiques dating back between the 60s to 80s. Artefacts like TV, radio, old school vehicles, and many more are displayed here.
And if you are from the present generation, you’ll see the precious things of the past that seem to vanish silently over time. You’ll have lots of spots to take photos, giving you a 60s’ vibe.
