Trip Moments

Speaking of this place in Jixi County, it is estimated that many people have learned that it is the shocking news of Chinas largest high-speed railway station at the county level. In fact, Jixi County is an important county in ancient Huizhou. It is a typical garden ecological city and leisure tourism city with outstanding people and beautiful scenery. The city is full of pleasant natural scenery and antique old Huizhou architecture. There is such a park about 1 km from Jixi North Station of the high-speed railway station. It is called the West District Park. It was originally a public park in the construction of Jixi City. Later, considering the supporting facilities of the high-speed railway station, it will be The West District Park is positioned as the supporting back garden of the Jixi County High-speed Railway Hub Station, allowing passengers to come to Jixi County to experience the beautiful mountains and liveable urban environment of Jixi. At the beginning, I thought that the West End Park was a very ordinary place to rest. When I knew the park, it was still displayed on the electronic map. I was walking from the high-speed railway station along the road with curiosity. I didnt expect it. Seeing such a beautiful scenery, it is really shocking. So, Yamano-kun stopped his foot here and stayed here for a while to appreciate this beautiful scenery. West District Park is located in Yintan Road, west of Xincheng District, Jixi County. It is only one road away from Jixi County Government Affairs New District and belongs to the center of Jixi New Town. The location of this park is very good, not only close to Jixi High-speed Railway North Station, government affairs center, but also to Jixi Old Railway Station and Jixi County Economic Development Zone. This time, the West End Park, where Yamano is headed, is a superb free park that is around a few minutes around the park, so it is a small and medium-sized park. Therefore, the size of this park is not very large, but the scenery is very beautiful. It is a park worthy of appreciation. If you want to transfer to Jixi County or stop for a short time, you can take a taxi from the high-speed railway station or hike here to enjoy the scenery. The main structure of the park is based on natural landscapes, and relying on the Huizhou native Huizhou buildings, some pavilions and stone pavements have been built on the lakes and mountains of the park, giving a very fresh and elegant A sense of travel experience. Hike in almost every corner of the park, you can enjoy different scenery. The structure and architecture of this park seem simple, but it is extraordinary. The Lake Viewing Pavilion features traditional Huizhou architecture. The pavilion can admire the lake scenery in different directions around the lake. On the other hand, the scenery of the city and the landscape blends with the landscape. It is not so much that the West District Park is a supporting facility for the high-speed railway station. It is better to say that it is one of the successful examples of the construction of small towns in China. If you have ample time in Jixi County, it is worthwhile to get a look at this park. However, Yamano suggested that it is best to play between September and November in the fall. At this time, Jixi County has excellent weather, high visibility, and the scenery looks more beautiful.
