Island
Marvel at the 33 m (108 ft) gilded statue of Guanyin Goddess of Mercy and Compassion at Putuo Mountain (Putuoshan), one of the four sacred mountains in Chinese Buddhism. Part of the Zhoushan archipelago, this spectacular island-mountain is arguably the most beautiful of the 400 islands--peaks of a submerged mountain range. Take the ferry from Zhoushan to explore the mountain's three major temples, plus a cable car offering spectacular scenery. Walk along two long sandy beaches, or take a stroll in the woods and observe a 1,000-year-old camphor tree amid magnificent hornbeams. A popular tourist place and pilgrimage spot, the island also has modern facilities.
