Date Chinese women and visit these “love locks” bridges

If your intention has always been to date Chinese women and visit the iconic “love locks” bridge in Paris when you meet the right girl, you’ll have to have to make other plans.

For the last several years, the Pont des Arts Bridge in Paris has been the place where millions of couples have gone to declare their true love for one another by placing a padlock onto the bridge and tossing the key into the Seine River below. That is all set to change as Parisian officials have now removed the padlocks and replaced the fencing with Plexiglass panels to prevent the tradition in the future.

Locked-in Syndrome

A staggering number of couples have come to place a padlock on the bridge, and it has now become dangerous. The locks have added 45 extra tons to the bridge, turning it into a hazard.

Although the bridge in Paris is definitely the most famous one, there are plenty of other sites where you can lock your love away. Check these out:

  • Mount Huang, China. If you date Chinese women and find yourself in China with the love of your life, you can still hang a padlock of love! Lock your soul with your sweetheart on one of the fences on Mount Huang and throw the key into the valley below.
  • North Seoul Tower, Seoul, South Korea. There are seven artificial “love trees” on the terraces of this tower with love locks in mind, and the tower’s operators have placed special bins in which to place the keys so lovers don’t toss the keys from the tower.
  • Hohenzollern Bridge, Cologne, Germany. Back in 2009, lovers started placing love locks on this bridge over Cologne’s Rhine River. It is similar in style to the bridge in Paris where lovers toss their keys into the water below.
  • Vodootvodny Canal, Moscow, Russia. Instead of placing padlocks on the bridge itself, there are artificial “love trees” just like those found in South Korea.

Chinese girls at the Red Leaf Festival at Fragrant Hill

Part of the fun of dating Chinese girls online is that when the romance works, you often end up with a good reason to visit China.  If you are headed to China this October, you might want to check out the Red Leaf Festival at Fragrant Hill.

The festival is a grand celebration that takes place in Beijing from October 15th through the 31st.  Many people flock to this region during this time of year to enjoy the bright red autumnal leaves.

Red leaves

Fragrant Hill is actually one of the most famous places in China to see red leaves, and thousands of people attend the festival each year.  If you plan to attend, it might be a good idea to check it out on a weekday when the locals are working to avoid big crowds.

If you want to get a really good glimpse of the red leaves, there are a couple of good places in the park.  Tranquility Green Lake, which is about a five-minute walk from the east gate, is a lovely spot and is particularly romantic for Chinese girls.  Another good spot can be found at the Fragrant Hills Temple, which is situated on the south hill near Shuangqing Villa.

A great way to spend the day enjoying the red leaves is to get there early and enjoy other local sights and eateries nearby.  You should also keep in mind that because so many people go to Fragrant Hills to see the red leaves, public transportation is the best way to get there.
