Nanchang Bayi Square
The Bayi Square (literally known as August 1st Sqaure) in the southern part were built to commemorate the Nanchang uprising that happened in August 1 1927. It was here that The Kuomintang Nationalist Party established a “Revolutionary Committee” to plan the spark that was expected to ignite a widespread peasant uprising. Later, it was this uprising that paved way for the formation of People’s Republic and hence the political foundation of modern china.
About 78,000sqmt large the square was constructed in 2002 and is now the place of gathering for a lot of political and cultural festivals. It is also the second largest square in china after the Tianamen square in Beijing. A public favourite, the square has a musical fountain installed near the south where a lot of people gather during the summer nights for a cool outdoor experience.

The second tallest Ferris wheel in the world, the Star of Nanchang is a whopping 160mt tall preceded only by Singapore Flyer. Opened to the world on May 2006 and built with superb precision and efficiency there are 60 capsules in the wheel, each representing a minute. Hence passengers can actually board or alight on the capsule without the wheel ever having to stop. Each capsule is air conditioned, and equipped with fire extinguisher, intercom and a lifeline barrel for safety. Moreover the wheel looks like a huge dazzling clock at night since it is adorned with 7000 LED lights. It offers a breath-taking view of the cityscape as it ascends above. Taking about 30 minutes to complete one rotation, the thrill never ceases to end when aboard the Star of Nanchang.
