Bamboo Raft Trips
Enjoy the majestic scenery of the mountains and gorge on a Bamboo raft trip. Marvel at the scenery on your hour long down stream journey.
Mount Longjing is located on the southeast of Mount Wuyi. It enjoys a pleasant climate, warm in summer and cool in winter. Here you will find a good number of rare wild animals living on the land and plentiful supply of vegetation covering the fertile earth. All year round, wild flowers bloom and trees thrive. Here you will find the Qiyu Hall. Since the Song Dynasty (960 - 1279), the Qiyu Hall has been a place where people prayed for rain and other blessings from the gods. When there was a drought, the local people from some distance around would travel to the hall and pray for rain. Thanks to the serene environment, Mount Longjing is an ideal place for relaxation and outdoors activities.
Wuyi Canyon is a good place to kick back and simply drift along in the water. The Wuyi Canyon is 14 kilometres long and has a drop of about 150 meters along its length. This stretch of water belongs to the Tongmu Brook, which is one of the sources of the Nine Bends Brook which meanders between rocks and gorges. When drifting gently with the water's flow, you can appreciate the lush trees on spectacular mountains as well as the fish swimming in the brook. A refreshing cool breeze brushes past you as you feel the splash of water upon your face where the water rushes through the narrows between high cliffs. Altogether an exciting adventure in awe-inspiring surroundings.
Xiamei Folk Buildings
Located about 12 kilometres southeast of Wuyishan City you will find the ancient Xiamei Village. Walking in the Xiamei Village with its profound culture and rich history, it carries you back in time to the Ming (1368 - 1644) and the Qing (1644 - 1911) Dynasties. Even today many of its buildings are still very well preserved. Xiamei village is also a major distribution centre for tea produced in Mount Wuyi. Tea merchants constructed more than 70 houses in this village. There are also many other well-designed senior officials' and Confucian scholars' houses. Tea is wonderfully refreshing when taking a rest in a local teahouse. Chinese tea is a kind of culture all of its own. When you drink tea for the first time, you will be impressed by its flavour and fragrance. The Bohea and the Oolong Tea are grown locally in the Mount Wuyi area. Bohea is the variety of tea that grows on the mist-covered Mount Wuyi. The Oolong is another variety of tea with relatively strong flavour.
