World Bridges--the Panama Canal--Tourist Guide
1.Specific location:The locks of Miraflores are located at the entrance to La Plata River and the Pacific Ocean. There are several inspection stations along the river, which some of them can only be seen from within the forest; others are visible from afar by cars. Therefore, it is best to see Miraflores locks from the car. It is only a ten-kilometer distance from the city center. (You can also pass through Parque Nacional Marino Las Baulas, which is my favorite place!)
2. Tour time:Miraflores's opening hours are from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. If you want to visit the city, please check the official website of the Canal de Panamá, which shows when boats will pass through. Most boats pass through during the morning or afternoon two hours after their schedule time on weekdays and weekends respectively; for other times, it depends on luck.
3. Movies:A movie about the history of the canal, operations, and tourism across China has been released in a 2D format. It was released in 2D ten years ago, but now it's in IMAX format--a surprise! Admission is ¥5 per person and there are also snacks and soft drinks for sale during the film.
4.Food:The upstairs is a restaurant, and you can enjoy fine food while seeing the river. But for lunch, there aren't many boats passing by the river, and the food isn't so good, so please PASS.
