Pirate Village in Shepan Island
61 Reviews
Rural Area
Pirate Village in Shepan Island is located in Sanmeng, Zhejiang and castle-like wall formed Pirate Village's entrance gate, with characters of "Pirate Village" very conspicuous in wall's iron anchor. The anchor shaft’s apical ring has corroded and damaged, seeming like a incomplete claw stretching out to the sky to tell the memorable years and warfare at the time. A group of rock carvings stand right ahead of the tourist attraction and they are Sun En, Lu Xun, Fang Guozhen, Wang Zhi and Zheng Zhilong, all of which were important pirates in China's history.

Hot Spring
The Ninghai Forest Hot Spring is commonly known as the Tianming Mountain Nanxi Hot Spring, and is a famous forest hot spring in Eastern China. It is nestled in the Tianming valley in Shenzhen Town, located in the northwest of Ninghai Municipality. It mainly consists of a residential district and a hot spring district, with a shuttlebus service that runs in between the two districts. Especially in winter, it's extremely enjoyable to come and soak in a hot spring. There are two types of hot spring pools, indoor and outdoor. All of the outdoor pools are built on a hillside and are at one with nature. Other than being known for hot springs, the scenery here is also stunningly beautiful, and the green hills and clear water form a giant natural "source of oxygen." After bathing in the water, visitors can explore and take a leisurely tour of the area.
