About Chongwu Ancient City

Chongwu Ancient City is located on the southeastern coast of Hui'an County, facing the Taiwan Strait. It was built in the 20th year of the Hongwu Emperor's reign (1384). However, only one section of the ancient city wall still exists today. There are city gates on all sides, a beacon tower on the city gate, and a wall outside the south gate. To further improve the scenery, we have incorporated many iconic features from Hui'an life--stone carvings--soldiers, characters from Journey to the West etc.

    Chongwu Ancient City in Huian is a very interesting place. It was about 13 yuan by bus from the central passenger station in the city, and it could be reached in more than an hour. After getting off the bus, you can walk for a few minutes to see Chongwu Ancient City. The student card is 23 yuan and the ticket is 45. We recommend Rui Fang Fish Rolls outside the scenic spot for two people. It's delicious for five yuan a bunch. The sea water is clean, but swimming is forbidden. In ancient cities, seafood is probably the only way to eat. As the Student Party, we can only eat 15 pieces of fried noodles. It is suggested that the Student Party can bring some things to eat, because only fish rolls are cheaper. Generally speaking, it's still a good place to play.

    Wind and rain shelter in the pavilion, Cangbo City Street, Cangbo people, Luotuo Mo asked Luotuo things, a piece of Piaoping a heart. Because of the weather, I regret Chongwu Tour, but I still feel very good! Compared with Xiamen, the commercialization is very low. About an hour's drive away from Quanzhou City, you can make a running bus in Quanzhou Passenger Transport Center, 15 yuan per person. You can walk down to Chongwu Ancient City Scenic Area. The latest return time is around 6 o'clock. If you miss it, you can only take a taxi back to the city. The price will be very high. After all, Chongwu is one of the eight most beautiful coasts in China. The way to Chongwu is a small temple. At first glance, it is the first temple in the world. It is absolutely not excessive. It was the military Temple spontaneously set up by the PLA in 49 years to protect the local people in order to sacrifice. Hundreds of years ago, Qi Jiguang, the national hero of Haiboping, fought against Japanese aggressors here, and Qi's army ensured the safety of one side of the people in autumn. Perhaps the soul of the Chinese Army has been passed down from generation to generation, and the PLA has also sacrificed for the people, deserving to be the most lovely person. Whoever is a hero in the sand, why don't you laugh in a bloody uniform, even if it's only for silence? Why is the blood-stained military uniform? Only the silence is left in heaven and earth. Let the clear song move, sweep away the silence, abandon the sadness and look, the soul is long guarding the country. After seeing the sea, I remember the martyrs and settled lunch across from the Holiday Inn. Although it's a restaurant in the scenic area, it's also a price tag. It's good. Praise again! And the seafood is really fresh, 65 yuan for a kilo of skinned shrimp, which is not particularly expensive and acceptable. The more rain falls in the afternoon, the larger toll-paying scenic spots have been closed, but anyway, the point of view is not the 45 Chongwu Ancient City, which charges fees. The real tour route should be along the city wall. When you see a big banyan tree, there is a sign of Haichao Ancient Town. When you enter, you will find a primitive ecological town which does not know where Xitang is higher than Wuzhen. Without commercialization, maps are no longer able to navigate the right route, but accessible alleys and auxiliary signs will always find their way. Here you can climb the city wall to see the sea. The boundary between South Lake and East China Sea is also here, so here is the real essence. The sparrows in Haichao Abbey, mentioned above, took photos of the sparrows who came to shelter themselves from the rain. Perhaps they responded to Canon's advertisement. They were often touched or realized that all beings are equal in the face of nature. Unfortunately, the rainstorm is too big. It is very difficult and dangerous to reach the boundary marker. When a big wave strikes, we can only rush back home. At the boundary marker, there is a bus to the starting point of the Pipeline Bus. It costs one yuan, and it will be there in about 15 minutes. Ps: August is a rainy typhoon season. You must watch the weather forecast [cover your face] before you go out.

    Chongwu Ancient City is like traversing to 100 years ago. At that time, the ancient city should be the most prosperous place. The old houses inside are still well preserved and have archaeological value. Passing a family is really like the scenes in the movie. I want to go in and take pictures. Every time I want to take a step, there is a voice. I'm a little afraid. Later, I rode by a handsome man on a motorcycle and used Fujian with the owner. In southern Chinese, an old grandfather finally opened the door. I thought his door was dark red one by one. It was a window. He was very enthusiastic to let me in for photos. He was eating noodles and asked me if I wanted to eat together. Good enthusiasm!

    On the day we went to Chongwu Ancient City in Hui'an, Fujian Province, the sky was beautiful, but the sky was full of fish scale clouds. It was really the same color of the sea and sky. There were fish in the sea, and the sky showed fish scale clouds. Is it a sight? There are many stone carvings in the ancient city sightseeing area, which show the exquisite skill of Hui'an masons. In particular, a Mazu stone sculpture is at the top, looking at the sea ahead, and protecting boats and fishermen from sailing back safely.

    Mingming is a commentary on Chongwu ancient city. Most of us go to stone carving parks, which are totally modern stone carvings. What I recommend is the free ancient city, which is around Jingjiang Village, Chaola Village, on the map. Most of the ancient villages are stone buildings, and there are some guides. This is a place with a sense of history and age. It's a special reminder not to use the public toilet in this village. There will be an old lady pestering you for a dollar, and dividing people, only picking out women from other places, men and women. I dare not. It's a shame to the local people.

    How can we travel to Quanzhou without going to Chongwu Ancient City? The bus from Quanzhou Passenger Transport Center arrives at Chongwu for 15 yuan. It is about a little more than a kilometer from the next station to the scenic spot of the ancient city. Online booking in advance is 5 yuan cheaper than the market price, and the student ticket is 22.5 yuan. The area of the scenic spot is quite large, but it may be Monday's relationship, and the flow of people is scarce. There are ancient city walls built in the Ming Dynasty to resist Japanese aggressors, which are the most well-preserved T-shaped defensive stone city in China. There are also vast beaches, which have a unique flavor when watching the gulls fly low in the distance under the sea breeze. There are also different themes of Hui'an stone carvings in the scenic spot. The lifelike craftsmanship makes people linger and forget to return. As a base of patriotism education, Chongwu ancient city has its significance and value of existence, overlooking the beginning of the next 600 years in the rolling history.

    Traffic is convenient. Just take a bus directly in Quanzhou Bus Passenger Transport Center. It's about an hour on the road. Almost 10 minutes after getting off. Stone carvings and sea calculations should be the most iconic here. The day we went there was a shower. It was not hot. It was a good day to go to the seaside. The stone carvings inside the gate have their own characteristics, from the dream of the Red Chamber to the twenty-four filial piety to the cat for money. The stone carvings of various images are impressive. At the end of the journey, we can mark the meteorological boundary of the Southeast China Sea. As for the sea, it's the most amazing place. It's quiet and wide. The sand is too hard. ) When I landed on shore, I was caught in heavy rain and stopped to have a seafood meal in the cafe. It tasted great and fresh. In a word, it's not tired to walk down. It's a good place for the whole family to walk together.

    Chongwu Ancient City is the only well-preserved "Stone City of Ming Dynasty" in China. Ticket attractions are only part of the ancient city. Looking at the real vast sea and sky, clear water and white sand, along the ancient city wall, you can see the ancient city gate (there are two). It is said that the inhabitants of the city are descendants of the anti-Japanese generals of that year. The most impressive thing is that there are many ancestral temples. Perhaps they miss their families. 。
