The fishermen in Putuo district, Zhoushan live a leisurely life in their stone-made houses while admiring wide stretches of sea view in the daytime and listening to sea waves in the nighttime.

Most of the fishermen in the district are native to the area. Their experience is far from the district's scenic spots and the tourists that visit, as they are busy doing fishing-related work while chitchating with each other.

Mornings and evenings are the most busiest time at the wharves in fishing villages as fishermen set off for the day's work and carry back what they have caught during the day to sell them to fishmongers or to sell them by themselves.

Wandering around a fishing village, air-dried fish hanging outside of almost every household is a common sight, while fresh seafood is also available everywhere in such a village.

So, for fans of seafood looking for a relaxing getaway, why not seize the good opportunity of visiting the fishing villages in Putuo during such good weather.
