Zhoushan's fine reputation makes local people say, "Once you have visited Zhoushan, you will never again feel the need to visit another island". It is China’s largest archipelago, made up of around 400 islands. Tourists can appreciate the sand sculpture at Zhujiajian Island or go to swimming on one of the beaches of the Shengshi Islands. From Dongji (Farthest East) Island where the first rays of sunlight every day, every year and every century first hit the Chinese mainland, all the way to Qingbang (Green Waters) Island where you can see the “Potala Palace of the Sea”, the whole archipelago is full of amazing sites. Furthermore, the archipelago's Putuo Mountain has been known since antiquity as the "Ocean Kingdom of Buddhism" and the "Holy Land of the South China Sea". It is one of Chinese Buddhism's Four Great Mountains. Of course, if you come here in the Autumn, you can also can taste all kinds of affordable and delicious seafood.
_We***00Pure information: From shanghai south railway station you can take a bus to putuo (zhoushan) for 150 RMB at zhoushan you grab a ferry ticket for 30 RMB and a ticket to enter the island at 160 RMB (passports required also). once you're on the island there are no didi's but the island itself is small enough to walk to the north in around 2 hours and there are shuttle busses, though i didnt use them. you'll need to buy a return ferry ticket to zhoushan for your trip back on the bus.there is also a direct ferry from shanghai to putuoshan and from putuoshan to shanghai once per day but this will take you 12 hours compared to the 4 hours or so on the bus. as a final piece of infornation, yes you are actually allowed to swim in the sea here. i went around 30 meteres out having a bit of a play and a swim, this was at baibusha (hundred step beach) with lifeguards on jetskis for safety. i hope this helps you plan your trip as i had to do my own research and if you dont speak any chinese im sure it could be a challenge!very much worth it howevet,
dlu808The trees in Daqingshan are not very thick and tall. It may be because of the perennial sea breeze and heavy rain that need to grasp the ground to survive. Many trees grow strangely and twisted, and they are also covered with vines, which fully interprets a cruel drama of survival and strangulation in nature...
南无楞严经A very solemn monastery. I looked at the sign at the door. It is said that the monks started their morning classes at 3 o'clock in the morning, and they can participate if they wish. As the main temple of Mount Putuo, visiting Putuo Mountain is a must. If you can take a morning class, of course it would be better. Opposite the Daxiong Hall, there is a row of chairs for visitors to rest. If you can, you can sit on them for a while and practice meditation. The whole world will be quiet. There is vegetarian food in the temple, less than ten yuan per person, it is said to be very delicious. The French logistics center in the temple provides good sandalwood for the public. The quality is very good and the price is very cheap, only 90 yuan for 100 grams. If you don’t burn incense at home, you can buy a bag of three sticks for one dollar for Buddha. The security of Mount Putuo is really good! Nanma Great Compassion Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva praises all merits

This is putuo mountain in zhoushan where you can see a golden budha statue rise above the ground. It is quite a spiritual place, if you enjoy chinese archeology, you can definetely enjoy the history value of this place. #wintergetaway
