Jiangnan Great Wall

Reviewed By Raymond W - Chengdu, China

Mention 'The Great Wall' and most people will think about the famous structure near Beijing. However, there is another Great Wall, often known as the 'Jiangnan Great Wall', which is located on a ridge near the town of Linhai in Zhejiang province. Intriguingly, this one can claim to be the original as the hollow block towers on the wall here were the model and template for the famous Great Wall when it was upgraded from an earthen into a stone wall during the Ming Dynasty.
This Great Wall is little known and we only passed less than a dozen other visitors in walking its entire length. Highlights include a steep section called Baibujun, an ancient camphor tree, a sacrificial altar, a plum garden, a rustic Chinese temple and several hollow towers, all of which can be visited along the length of the wall. You need to be in reasonable good health to make it up all the stairs. The experience is definitely worth the effort. You will need 2 to 3 hours to see it all at a leisurely pace.

A small lake in the middle of Old Town Linhai. Not a great path around it, but, some lovely old structures.

Ziyang Old Street

Reviewed By Raymond W - Chengdu, China

We really enjoyed walking down this old street with its timber facades, cobblestone paving and old wells and walls. There are many places to try local Linhai food specialties including a kind of delicious nougat. This old street has not been overly modernized and commercialized: these are local businesses serving local people. Linhai tourism is not very developed overall. The old time atmosphere is very strong here, with a truly authentic flavour.

Kuocang Mountain

冬天的括苍山是最美的,因为不光可以看见云海,日出,星空,还可以看见雾凇,我们人品超级好,什么都看到了。山上很冷,建议带个睡袋,住宿的房间内提供电热毯,晚上温度很低,水缸的水厚厚一层冰。山上冬天没有自来水,都冻住了,不过日出超级美,风车发电很壮观。

桃渚海滨公园是个不错的旅游地方。
早上8点左右到达,赤脚走在沙滩上的感觉很舒服,海风吹过脸庞,温暖舒适。
中午,涨潮。
在沙滩上捡捡小贝壳,与朋友一起追逐打闹,是件很快乐的事情。
旁边有很多卖螺丝的小摊,不贵,能吃到新鲜的螺丝,那个螺丝和我们平时吃的不一样,长得长长的。
路上还有卖贝壳饰品的小店,很多精致的饰品可以留做纪念。
下午,退潮时,赤脚赶潮,和朋友一起追逐打闹。
傍晚,可以在里面租一个烧烤架,几人一起吃个烧烤,喝个啤酒,晚上还可以组个帐篷,在沙滩上举行篝火晚会。
记得一定要带上拖鞋和换洗的衣服。

Guohua Abacus Museum

Reviewed By OzChina - Perth, Australia

My late father-in-law was an expert with the abacus so when my wife suggested we take him to see the Abacus Museum while we were living in Linhai I quickly agreed but had Reservations. How interesting could an abacus museum be? And wasn't I wrong. It's a fascinating place. The owner used to work in an abacus factory and began collecting old and unusual versions of this ancient calculator. The museum has an abacus used by China's great statesman, Zhou En Lai, a very old porcelain one dug up while excavating foundations for a new sky-scraper in Shanghai, and others ranging from the very small to the biggest functioning abacus in the world. There are some awesome examples of old Chinese craftsmanship, interesting historical notes, and even a round abacus or two. Well worth a visit.
