  • From Shanghai you can arrive in the island by public transport, metro, bus, ferry and bus. A real adventure for a few Kwai! By bus it is about 3.5 hours of Shanghai. It is necessary to buy a ticket to zhoushan, which will allow you to access the island by boat and visit count the day where you can walk between gardens and Buddhist temples.

  • The legend is the South China Sea sound of the road, want to be the peak of the incense, over the years, the visitors to scare, the island's connected car waiting for a long time to spend. I feel that the island has been too light, from the connected car, should be like the Jiuzhai of the ticket levy, to facilitate everyone on the island to come to the scenery points, after all, the old people in the holy still many. Because of the crowd, the staff 揹 a tube of incense, but the quality of incense is not too good, so often close to the stove when, will always be a large number of burning of the inferior flavor, feel the breathing is not smooth. The advice will not be effective when the Bureau can reduce the amount of incense. In addition to the number of visitors, it slowly walks and visits each temple to the Holy Land, the entire magnetic field and atmosphere makes people feel very comfortable and smooth. Purification of the mind. It's better to be able to respond to a sound and a green mother.
