At 8 o’clock in the evening, I finally came to this small island engulfed by the night of the vast East China Sea – Dongtou. When we arrived at the hotel, it was the last parking space. Check in, go out, eat a bowl of rice noodles with mushrooms and pork ribs, it’s not bad.
The hotel room is small, but it’s ok, it has everything you need.
Going out early in the morning, across the road, a bowl of Wenzhou rice noodles, plus a bowl of beef. Wenzhou rice noodles are rice noodles with shredded mustard and meat floss, which is a bit new. The beef is of good quality, stewed badly, and the total is 21 yuan.
Drive up the mountain to Wanghai Tower. Dianping net to buy tickets, 27, which is equivalent to a 10% discount on the market price. Wanghai Tower was built in the Southern Song Dynasty on Qing’ao Mountain in Dongtou. The whole building is quite majestic, and it is the tallest ancient building I have ever seen. The building has 4 floors open to the outside world, and each floor is an exhibition hall for the fishery production, life, folk customs, handicrafts, etc. of local fishermen in Dongtou, which also tells the nostalgia and nostalgia for their hometown.
The local area belongs to the Fujian-Ou culture, and the people of Dong’ou and southern Fujian have mixed together for generations, and the folk culture is inclusive. Buddhism, Taoism, and Mazu all worship.
Go out of Wanghai Tower and look at the map. There is a small island in the south of Dongtou called Bei’ao, which is connected by a bridge. Decided to check it out.
From Dongtou to Bei’ao Island, the road looks like this:
After driving for about 20 minutes, I went to Bei’ao. Walk along the coastal road, fishing nets are drying along the road, and fishermen are repairing fishing boats. It has not yet been developed into a tourist area, and the state is quite primitive, but you can see a row of newly renovated farmhouses emerging.
It turned out that the stone wall was built like this

The mountain was getting higher and higher, until it reached the dirt road with potholes, and there was no road ahead. It seemed to be a construction site of some kind of resort, and there was no one there. Get off the car and take pictures.
This can be regarded as the end of the entire Eurasian continent that cars can drive. It’s ok, I can explain it myself.
Start the car and turn back, at the one-three fork, driven by curiosity, since we are here, let’s find out. Turn the car head towards the direction of the mountain. There is a Jin’ao village, and in front of the village is the Chenfu Shengwang Temple, which is a Taoist temple. In the open space in front of the temple, a large group of aunts and mothers gathered together and chatted, as if they were training fashion steps, and they seemed to be doing outreach activities. Walking along the mountain road in the village, the local houses are all made of stones, which are very beautiful and emotional. In Linhai, such dwellings have been moved into museums. Some houses are being demolished…
It was more than 2 o’clock in the afternoon, and we set off for downtown Wenzhou. Where to go, I don’t know, go to Wenzhou Museum first.
After driving for an hour and a half, we came to Wenzhou Museum and stopped welcoming visitors. Come back tomorrow. Search Ctrip and find a hotel with a parking lot. I checked Dianping.com, and I had a general idea of where to go.
There is a cat whining western restaurant near the hotel. It’s her for dinner.
On Day 5
, following the navigation, the car drove into a small market alley, like entering the southern urban area of Shanghai, unable to do anything.
Such streetscapes are hard to see in Shanghai now, and they have all been demolished. Both men and women in Wenzhou City are generally thin and thin. I walked on the street and became tall again.
Dongouwang Temple is located in the old city of Wenzhou. This is exactly what I want. Immerse yourself in the well of the old city, listen to the local people talking about their daily routines, and bargain for food. Wenzhou dialect is the most difficult language in China. Although I don’t understand it, I still like the atmosphere.
Go to the gate of Dongouwang Temple and notice that it is closed for internal maintenance. Book that. Take a few pictures around and make a card.
