Arrange a Marriage at Purple Bamboo Park
One of the city’s seven largest parks, Purple Bamboo Park (Zizhuyuan) consists of five bridges and three connecting lakes. The Temple of Longevity (Wanshousi) once stood northwest of the lakes. Here the Qing rulers built a lodging palace where they and their retinues could rest as they floated to the Summer Palace or the Jade Spring Mountain on the Changhe River.
Before getting to Magpie Bridge early on a Sunday morning, know the correct etiquette: boys’ parents take the initiative, move around and give lengthy introductions to their sons. Parents of girls move relatively less, giving only a demure introduction to their daughters. If both sides like what they hear, they exchange telephone numbers.
