Three Featured Tours in Zhejiang ProvinceYuyao in east Zhejiang Province has recently launched three featured tours: the "red" tour to Simingshan Mountain, the "green" tour to the bayberry woods, and the tour to ancient Hemudu Neolithic Ruins, according to the latest Beijing Review.
Simingshan Mountain became the hub of revolutionary activity in east Zhejiang in the 1940s. It is home to former seats of the CPC East Zhejiang Committee and its headquarters of the East Zhejiang Guerrilla Detachment of the New Fourth Army Simingshan Mountain to Revolutionary martyrs and other revolutionary sites. This is where you will hear lots of history about Chinese revolution.
Organized by Yuyao, the red trip enables tourists from all over the country to pay tribute to revolutionaries and witness heartwarming patriotic activities. Yuyao has attracted more than 30,000 tourists so far.
The bayberry is Yuyao 's oldest fruit, and is famous both in China and overseas. In ancient times it was used as a tribute to the imperial court.
Yuyao 's mountains are covered with bayberry trees. When the bayberries turn red in June that is a sure sign that they are ripe and ready to pick and eat. Tourists can spend their time wandering around the bayberry orchards, picking the luscious fruit. The output of this year's harvest reached 20,000 tons, much to the delight of the farmers, who also had the tourists and tourism companies to thank for the "green" trip that brought them there.
The Hemu Neolithic Ruins has a rich history that goes back 7,000 years. Untouched by civilization, it has a beautiful lake and 12 islands where you will find plenty of deer and hare. Attempts to conserve its ecosystem are being made.
Early this past June, the three featured tours attracted visitors, both from home and abroad. Some travel agencies from Hong Kong and Southeast Asia also came to collaborate with those in Zhejiang.
So now you know where to go if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of daily big-city life.
