Patriotism education base. The four major satellite launch centers in China, the only one open to the outside world. Must go here to see Xichang. There is a tour group in Xichang. The cost is more than 150 yuan. You can also take a passenger bus to the sand bar at the West Passenger Station for 20 yuan a person. In the sandbar there are motorcycles, rural minibus ~ green. The minibus is 40 yuan for carpooling. It is full of 8 people, 5 yuan per person. The sandbar is located 7.4 kilometers from the satellite launch center visitor center, spanning three natural villages. It is a special drive Z005. You can also walk there on foot if you have physical strength. The scenery is good all the way.
