When it comes to my great Fujian, most people seem to only know Xiamen, but in fact, there are countless beautiful mountains and rivers worth visiting hidden in the land of Fujian.
As a coastal province, Fujian has many small islands that are “raised in deep boudoirs and unknown”. Because of the late development and low popularity, they retain a good environment and the most original taste.
What Xiao U wants to introduce to you today is Pingtan Island , the closest place from mainland China to Taiwan Island, and the filming location of “Where Are We Going, Dad? “
No matter which season you come to, Pingtan can give you a different travel experience. What’s more, there is a beautiful sea in all seasons, surrounded by 408.7 kilometers of silver beaches, kissed by 6064 square kilometers of blue sea and clear sky, and there are infinite surprises hidden.
This small city, which is closely related to the sea, has evolved a thousand kinds of scenery and styles around the word “sea”. Hide in the peach garden on the sea with blue sea and blue sky, enjoy a life as comfortable as the wind, and encounter a blue tear like a dream in the season of warm spring and flowers blooming.
It is best to visit Pingtan Island for 2-3 days. The tour route is divided into the north line and the south line. The caring little U has already organized the strategy for everyone, let’s go together~!
◆ South Line
Haitan God—Jiangjun Mountain—Tannan Bay—Haitan Ancient City
❥Hai Tan God
In the south of Haitan Island, on the seashore at the southern end of Tangyu, Nanhai Township, there is a huge gray-white granite, which is a natural pictographic stone figure. Tianshen rests his head on the beach and stretches his feet to the South China Sea, lying 330 meters long.
The most amazing thing is that the stone man’s lower body is tilted with a columnar weathered rock body, like a male organ (little U covers his face and runs away~), and it is said that touching this object can give birth to a fat boy.
The entire body of the stone man is made of granite spherical weathered shape, such a huge spherical weathered shape is rare in the world!
Tips : To go to Haitan Tianshen, you need to take a boat, 20 yuan/person, and there are three shifts a day, at 9:10, 10:30, and 14:00.
Jiangjun Mountain is the commanding height in the south of Pingtan Island. The view from the top of the mountain is very wide, overlooking the entire Tannan Bay, and it is also a good place to enjoy the sunrise on the sea.
It was originally named Tiger Mountain, and was later renamed General Mountain to commemorate the grand occasion of more than a hundred generals climbing the mountain to watch the battle during the joint military exercise in the early spring of 1996.
The mountain rises near the sea, steep and steep, with staggered giant rocks, strange rocks, intertwined roots, and beautiful scenery.
Tannan Bay is a “virgin land” waiting to be reclaimed on Pingtan Island. It is guarded by forest belts, surrounded by hills, and the coast stretches for 22 kilometers. The environment is beautiful and pollution-free.
The sea is clear and blue, and the sand is soft and delicate. It has the reputation of “Platinum Coast”, which is comparable to Yalong Bay in Sanya, but there are very few tourists.
Tannan Bay is also a beach with a high probability of the spectacle of blue tears, but it can be encountered but not sought. Xiao U can only wish everyone good luck.
❥Haitan Ancient City
Haitan Ancient City is China’s first ancient city for island tourism. Although it is newly built, it is also antique and unique in style, combining the customs of southern Fujian and Hakka.
In addition to wandering around the streets and alleys, don’t forget to find a tall building to climb up and look far away. The combination of antique buildings and beautiful sea views is the most charming place in Haitan Ancient City!
What you can’t miss is the night view of the ancient city, the fantasy fairyland created by 30 million people, which has a special style and charm in the night.
◆ Northern Line
East China Sea Wonderland—Beigang Village—Dongxiang Island—Windmill Field
❥Eastern Sea Wonderland
At the southern foot of Wangye Mountain, there is a natural sea-eroded shaft with a diameter of nearly 50 meters and a depth of more than 40 meters called “Immortal Well”.
The blue sky, the blue water, and the white trails look particularly harmonious against the greenery on the top of the mountain.
Climbing up the steps to the viewing platform, you can have a panoramic view of the beautiful sea and sky. “Thousands of piles of snow are rolled up by the turbulent waves”, accompanied by the sea breeze blowing on your face, you will feel refreshed.
A small fishing village surrounded by mountains and facing the sea has been developed very well, but it is still quiet and lazy, with a very Taiwanese style.
The houses in Beigang Village are very distinctive. They are all made of stones. They are suitable for taking some retro literary photos. Especially on sunny days, the output rate is very high.
Beigang Village is a place suitable for slowing down and staying for a few days. “I have a house facing the sea, and the spring is warm and the flowers are blooming.” This is probably what I said.
The first episode of the fifth season of “Where Are We Going, Dad” is shot here. The leisurely island life in the village is everywhere you like.
On one side is the translucent blue water, and on the other side is a patchwork of ancient stone houses. Dongxiang Island surrounded by the sea is tightly embraced by the breeze from the Pacific Ocean.
Just sit in a daze by the beach, listen to the sea breeze, look at Taiwan, don’t have to think about anything, just enjoy the moment.
On the way to the windmill field, you will pass the most beautiful road around the island on Pingtan Island. On one side is the blue sea and waves, and on the other side are colorful stone houses, which are arranged in a patchwork at the foot of Junshan Mountain.
Unknowingly, a large windmill field appeared in front of my eyes, and there was an endless blue sky and a vast ocean. The picture composed of blue sky, white clouds, blue sea, and windmills is like being in a fairy tale fairyland~
