NicoleenThousand Islands Lake a nice getaway for a weekend with lots of activities you can participate in. You can go hiking, take a bike ride, go on a hot air balloon or cano whatever you like to do. It's a beautiful lake with lots of scenic spots to take pictures or just to relax and breath nature in.
Schhnice 2hours walk to. enjoy the green lush forest. very good place for families. I would not recommend for old people because the first part walking up may be difficult. I was pregnant of 8 months, I could walk, but to warn that some pregnant women may also find difficult to walk up. To go down, many kids love taking this rail ride with their parents.
M48***85Walking into the Lion City feels bright, beautiful environment; the air is fresh; brings people a pleasant mood... The scenic area is very special, white walls and black tiles; very style! The shops inside are also very special; there are various studies! Summer vacation is very suitable for taking children out to experience...
Qiandao Lake Travel: Suitable, Umbrella: Not Required, UV Strength: Very Low
This was a 3 day tour group trip which I felt ended way too soon. From Shanghai by bus it took us about about 5 hours and thankfully traffic was smooth . I’m not a fan of long rides but this was a great way to make new friends !
Arrived at the lake resort hotel (beautiful ❤️) around 2pm , headed over to a lake restaurant for some delicious lunch and then went cycling . Although it was hot , I pretty much enjoyed it . There’s like a special “cycling “ path of 140 km 😀
Next day we went kayaking and rafting!! best kayaking experience ever .It’s not too crowded compared to other rafting bases , and the prices are super reasonable .The base overlooks a highway and the scene is just amazing..
Last day , we went for a short hike through a nearby mountain.
Walking along the path in the green forest filled with refreshing air just cleanses your lungs and mind. Once we reached the mountaintop, we could see the full view of Qiandao Lake.
One must see this by getting on a boat (there are plenty that offers this service, almost like a train of shuttle boats).
The rapid flow of the lake, the merging of two rivers, and then the awesome big statue.
Take it in... Make sure your memory card is enough for the videos and pix.
Bring good shoes here and bring water for a hot day. It is a fairly easy hike made slower by the crowds. A good side attraction that we would recommend that is in the same area is the Oriental Capital. This can easily be accessed if you go up the right side of giant Buddha via the boardwalk instead of left up the narrow cliffside staircase.

Beautiful hotel with great views most of the rooms have a balcony stayed in a premier suit which was excellent it has a huge amount of space with 3 divided balconies. service is at the restaurants are ok, not much english speaking people, terry li at reception was great who also spoke great english and very helpful he has indeed made our stay very comfortable, the hotel is huge lots of outdoor activities with a price of course. the hotel spa was ok very friendly and gentle but i think they can do better with there products considering the price you pay. overall stay was great and convenient for touring. you given the view of the lake, comfort, and everything needed in house will definitely visit again.
qiandao is a beautiful place as a get away very easy to get transport out of train station.... if you wanting to take a boat ride or do other activities there are ticket offices outside the train station than can assist with that if its just a boat ride to different islands you can purchase that at the docks. below are some attached pictures of the lake and islands
💡Where is it - it is located in Chunan County, around 1 hour's drive from Thousand Lake Island
💡Getting There - Recommended by car, it is a unexplored village so there is few public transportation. At the entrance of the village, there is a big public parking lot, so it is very convenient to drive there.
💡Attractions - it is a very traditional Jiangnan style village, and as it is unexplored and un-commercialized, you can experience the authentic and original atmosphere of how people live in the village.
The house 🏘 was built in typical Huizhou Architecture, with brick-wood structure, though worn-out, the mottlement on the wall shows the traces of the years, telling its descendant and guests the history it has been through.
There are also stone bridge🏞 and clear stream, every step with a change of scene.
💡Time to spend - recommend at least 1-2 hours, to enter the village you will need to pass through a long trail with greens which will take 10-20 minutes. Leave more time to take nice pictures!
When I first heard the name of the city, I didn't realize that they actually mean it. Thousand island lakes (千岛湖) is a manmade waterways that had split the city into thousand islands 🏝️ (although I didn't individually count though 😜). Our first day, was almost washed out because of heavy rain while on second day mother Nature was mercy on us and we biked our way to this hiking 🥾 point. It is actually an observatory on the top of the mountain from where you can see the lake & mountains. Sunset 🌄 is the best time to be there. It took nearly an hour to reach to the top, there are some shops on the way too where you can buy stuffs. The difficulty is easy and anyone can do this !! Next time definitely try this out folks 🤗 #thousandisland #zhejiang
Eating the fish head, was never my favorite before I came to 千岛湖(Thousand islands lake) . But every restaurant that you visit in 千岛湖 totally recommend this 胖头鱼 which literally means fat fish head. Also this dish & fish amaze me that fish head also has lot of 肉 (meat) to eat. Along with that the spicy chicken (perfectly 65 days grown) was such a delicacy. Moreover you will also learn a new skill, on how to eat out of the shell. The process is you take a toothpick, and pick the meat out haha ! These sort of dishes & experiences make me fall in love for 中餐 (Chinese cuisine) 🤤 #tripfoodie #tripfoodiezhejiang #胖头鱼
wow! took a boat along Qiandao Lake and even though it was a bit breezy and foggy- still enjoyed the glorious day in it! visited three islands, saw monkeys , plenty of birds (although not the happiest ones being showcased on bird island) and gorgeous views of hundreds of islands! will def go back! whole day from 9-4!
