Jianglang Mountain of Jiangshan

Reviewed By Chris P - Shanghai, China

Wow! what a wonderful experience. Our first attempt at climbing the mountain was postponed due to high winds. The next day we ascended to the top, climbing thousands of stairs in the process, with a VERY sturdy hand rail for protection and safety. I was a bit cautious because of the height, but I never felt insecure at any stage. I would like to go back and try a different path. Pity about the pollution, which made things a bit hazy.

A nice retreat on the lake, with a calm and relativelly clean environment. For food enjoy the fish of the Reservoir. The food is spicy and tasty.

去婺源的路上途径衢州,遂来龙门峡谷看看,这里山势险峻,连绵不绝,记忆最深刻的便是那长长的吊桥,当好些人在上面一起走的时候,晃荡的厉害,非常刺激。

Fangmen Walking Street

Reviewed By Raymond W - Chengdu, China

This pedestrian street is one of those identikit, faux-old walking streets that the Chinese build in so many cities. The shape of the buildings may be inspired by traditional Chinese houses but they are made of concrete and are all exactly the same, creating a Disneyland imitation of old China. Rip up the cobblestones and pour the cement. It's a real shame because this street is right up against the South Gate of the ancient city wall, so real old house were probably torn down to build this concrete facsimile. If you want to go clothes shopping, this place is a viable option, but mostly tourists will just pass straight through on their way to see the old city gate.

Lanke Mountain Scenic

Reviewed By VuattouxR - Shanghai, China

A nice little walk not far from Quzhou. It's not a hard climb, nor very long, but will kill a few hours. The few times I have been there, it has always been almost empty. This is supposedly a historical site in China.
There is a good place to eat fish at the bottom of the mountain, with several restaurants.

INTRODUCTION:
Quzhou is a prefecture-level city in western Zhejiang province, People's Republic of China. Sitting on the upper course of the Qiantang River, it borders Hangzhou to the north, Jinhua to the east, Lishui to the southeast, and the provinces of Fujian, Jiangxi and Anhui to the south, southwest and northwest respectively.
In early European sources, based on accounts by French missionaries, the name of Quzhou (Fu) was transcribed in the contemporary French manner, as Kyu-tcheou-fou or Kiu-tcheou-fou.
During the Southern Song dynasty the descendant of Confucius at Qufu, the Duke Yansheng Kong Duanyou fled south with the Song Emperor to Quzhou, while the new-ly established Jin dynasty (1115–1234) in the north appointed Kong Duanyou's brother Kong Duancao who remained in Qufu as Duke Yansheng. From that time up until the Yuan dynasty, there were two Duke Yanshengs, once in the north in Qufu and the other in the south at Quzhou. An invitation to come back to Qufu was extended to the southern Duke Yansheng Kong Zhu by the Yuan dynasty Emperor Kublai Khan. The title was taken away from the southern branch after Kong Zhu rejected the invitation, so the northern branch of the family kept the title of Duke Yansheng. The southern branch still remained in Quzhou where they lived to this day. Confucius's descend-ants in Quzhou alone number 30,000. The Hanlin Academy rank of Wujing boshi 五經博士 was awarded to the southern branch at Quzhou by a Ming Emperor while the northern branch at Qufu held the title Duke Yansheng. Kong Ruogu 孔若古 aka Kong Chuan(孔傳) 47th generation was claimed to be the ancestor of the Southern branch after Kong Zhu died by Northern branch member Kong Guanghuang. The leader of the southern branch is 孔祥楷 Kong Xiangkai.

OPINION BY SERGIO BAO GARCÍA:
After living almost 2 years in China, I thought that I have seen many great places, but with no doubt, Quzhou has been the best experience ever!
Everything was magical! From the first moment, I stepped in. It is completely different from what I have seen before in China. Its people, its nice weather…It has every-thing!
Walking through its streets and of course around its great Mountains it is just some-thing that you have to live for yourself. It is a city really easy to walk and get to know soon, which it is perfect; because it does allow you to see each part of it in details.
You can breathe the tranquility and serenity right away...You feel so great, that it is impossible to define it with words.
The top views that you have from its great mountain near the born river guide us through an amazing a completely new experience and the amazing surrounding were breathtaking.
The sound of the birds, river... Everything is in the right place!
Then, its fantastic hotels leave you speechless, truly amazing!! The fresh water of the bath is exactly what you need to just enjoy yourself, relax and jut forget about the rest of the world.
Then, last but not least, the food! Delicious “Food” all the way! Never tasted some-thing like this before!
No words left to say: If you want to see it and feel it; you have to come!
You can have my word that you will not regret it!
