Zhoushan is a popular tourist destination in China, with beautiful scenery at all seasons, including variable seascapes, lush woods, golden beaches, sheer rock cliffs and hidden wooden huts. It also boasts wonderful seafood and fanciful fishes.
In spring, you may go and visit the Taohua Island, or Peach Blossom Island. Interestingly, the island got its name not from real peach trees but from naturally formed black patterns on local stones that resemble branches of peach blossoms.
In summer, Zhujiajian Island will be a choice for relaxation and romance. Four beaches stretch along the southeast coast. One of them is the venue for the annual Zhoushan International Sand Sculpture Festival.
When autumn comes, you will enjoy all kinds of delicious seafood here, such as the freshest sea fish, crab, shrimp and shellfish, some just caught in coastal areas in the afternoon and displayed for your selection.
In winter, you may go and visit Mount Putuo, one of China's four sacred mountains and pilgrimage sites, to pray for blessings from Guan Yin, the Goddess of Mercy worshipped by millions of Chinese people.
