Qianduo (Raised Wetland Fields) Scenic Area

According to legend, the Qianduo Scenic Area represents the mysterious and powerful military formation created by General Yue Fei in the 12th century. Here, farmers’ fields of all different sizes rise up out of the wetland, disconnected from each other. Crisscrossed and surrounded by waterways, they are unreachable except by boat. Each separate field is like an island floating on the surface of the water. Every year around the time of the Qingming Festival (early April), the canola flowers bloom. The “golden islands” create a stunning sight with their explosions of yellow under the blue sky, outlined and crossed through by the clear, blue water.

Zheng Banqiao, a painter and writer of the Qing Dynasty, a writer of Xinghua, Jiangsu. Kangxi Xiucai, Yongzheng ten years of people, Qianlong first year of scholars. The county magistrate of Minxian County has a remarkable political performance. After living in Yangzhou, he made a living by selling paintings and was an important representative of the Eight Monsters of Yangzhou. Zheng Banqiao's former residence, located in the east of Xinghua City, Jiangsu Province, is a very small attraction, so there are not many people. The courtyard is not very large, but it is very delicate, the building is simple, the wall is covered with tiles, and it is a quiet place. Visiting Zheng Banqiao's former residence focuses on the culture. From the gardens and buildings, you can feel the cultural heritage here. Although the courtyard is not as good as Su Xichang, you can imagine how Zheng Banqiao smelled the chickens and danced poetry books here. Going further, it is a slightly larger courtyard. The green bamboo in the courtyard is in a hurry and warm. There is a bamboo forest behind the house. The back garden has flower windows and waters, and the scenery is pleasant. There are celebrity inscriptions on the back garden promenade. This is the "Ya room" written by Zheng Banqiao in "The room is not big, the flowers are not much". It is said to be a former residence, more like a small garden, the room is a study, by the window, you can see the bamboo shadows in the garden. There are pavilions and lotus gardens in the garden, which are elegant and quiet. I also met the old gentleman who plays Zheng Banqiao. It looks a bit far from it. This is also a must-see for Xinghua Old Town. If you don't have time to visit other places, at least check it out.

Jiangsu farmers started planting trees, and after 30 years, thousands of acres of forests became national 4A scenic spots Jinghua City, Jiangsu Province. Although located in Jiangbei, it is also a water town, and the most famous one in the territory is Putian. The most famous in spring is the rape blossoms in the Millennium Scenic Area. Not far from the rapeseed field, there is also a water forest park, which is also worth visiting. Lizhong Water Forest Park, this scenic area covers an area of about 2,000 acres, including 1050 acres of forest area and 950 acres of water area. This scenic spot can be said to have been built inadvertently. As early as the early 1980s, local people planted tree species such as cedar and metasequoia for the development of wasteland resources. After more than 30 years, it has become a dense forest, and it has also attracted tens of thousands of birds to settle in. Many tourists regard this as a paradise in East China. There are more than 100,000 cedar trees in the forest of Lizhong Water Forest. The forest grows tall and dense. The forest uses the common style of Putian in Xinghua. Trees and canals are connected, and visitors can also visit the forest park by boat. In 2014, Lizhong Water Forest Park was rated as a national 4A-level tourist attraction, which is also the first 4A scenic spot in Xinghua City. There are perfect wooden plank roads in the scenic spot, visitors can go deep into the forest and watch birds. There are more than 60,000 birds in the forest at most, and there are more than 30,000 in the forest. The main ones are owls, wild ducks, egrets, black rhododendrons, grass parrots, and mountains. The scene of birds returning at dusk is very spectacular. The locals still retain the traditional skills of fishing with ospreys, and now they have become performances in the scenic area. This forest park is the largest constructed wetland ecological forest in Jiangsu Province, forming a water town landscape with water in the forest and birds in the forest. In the spring, together with the rapeseed in the Millennium Scenic Area, it constitutes the most beautiful scenery in Xinghua.
