Trip Moments

Posted: Oct 4, 2019
Finally finally entered Songcheng, and posted notices and wanted orders on both sides. After entering the city, there were bursts of fragrance everywhere, there were food everywhere, and there was always the one you liked. There are endless tourists on the road, and there are endless foods on both sides. You must go to taste it when you pass by. When I first entered the city, I met a happy event. At noon, Wang Jia, a foreigner of the Wang family, wanted to throw a hydrangea, and the Princess Wang Jia on the stage was very shy. The audience was full of people, and everyone was excited to wait for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. I saw that Hydrangea was robbed by a 22-year-old boy on the stage. I was very excited. I put on the groom's outfit and said hello to everyone. I went back to the Great Song and met Meng. Open the folding fan and take a photo with the beauty. Walking on the street, crossing the characters to swim in the streets, I feel that I have passed through from time to time, you can take the initiative to take photos with them. After all, they are so high that they will not refuse. The real vocals of the outdoor play facilities are deafening, and everyone is having fun, and they clap their hands. I also show my hands, playing this must be fast, steady. The four beautiful women who passed together sat on the sedan chair, and they swayed to the home of Ruyi Langjun, and they were happy. This is the experience of sitting on the sedan chair, the front of the sedan chair is a big drum, the cymbals and other musical instruments composed of joy bands playing the joy, the four bearers wearing festive costumes, the lifted sedan chair screaming leisurely. Knocking on the drums, that is called a lively, must feel a feeling, just in the six room square. Dressed in costumes, it is also a simple mirror, no smile in front of the camera.

Xixi, taste the wetland slow life
Xixi wetland is known as "the kidney of Hangzhou", and the West Lake, Xiqiao and Hangzhou "three West", is currently the first and only domestic wetland, agricultural wetlands, culture Wetlands are integrated into the National Wetland Park. Compared with the West District, the Eastern District wins with natural landscapes. The representative landscapes of Xixi Wetlandwater ponds, greenery, reeds, cruise ships, and bluestone roadscan be seen and experienced here.
Xixi Wetland is very large, you need to leave it for a whole day, and plan the day's route, it is also necessary to buy a ticket. The battery boat is ring-shaped, and it stops at four terminals in Zhoujia Village, Yanshui Fishing Village, Shentankou and Hulu Grange in order. (The starting point is the end point, and it is back in a circle, there is no turning back), each terminal All are free to go up and down, free to move, the dock has a disembarkation dock and a dock.
Break in, the banks are lush, the bay turns, and the village is quiet. The idyllic wildness of Xixi, the literati of the dynasties left a lot of fuss, and there were many ancient temples. There are three scenes in Xixi worth seeing: Qiulufei snow, fire persimmon wave, Qushui plum. Autumn and early spring are the best seasons in Xixi.
Xixi is undoubtedly a good place, so it should be a few more days to take a look. Those who know how to stay in Xixi are those who really know how to enjoy life. Some people have said that if the paradise really exists, it may be Xixi. Xixi, who first met, is the best state. The wilderness is light and the waterfowl is flying. You can find dreams and release your body and mind. And when you want to really read Xixi, then "left" is the best.
