TAKE A SNAPSHOT OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL AUTUMN GINGKO LEAVES IN CHANGXING

Changxing is a small town with 1700 years of history. Its ancient roots and rustic traditions make it ideal for a quiet, peaceful lifestyle. Although Changxing exhibits different characteristics in different seasons, the peak of its beauty occurs in autumn when reinforced by the Gingko trees. As autumn progresses, the yellow gingko leaves gradually turn red. In the gentle cool breeze, their gentle flutter can easily be mistaken for dancing butterflies. If you choose to visit Changxing in late autumn, you are advised to join the locals in picnicking under the red leaves and picking chestnuts while staying in one of the local B&Bs. This is Huzhou, a typical town in Jiangnan. It is nowhere as busy as large cities, where people walk down streets with in loud, rhythmic click- claps. So take a few days off and experience life in slow motion in the rural country lands of Huzhou. From: World.nzlife.nz

TREAT YOURSELF TO A RELAXING GETAWAY IN THE MOGAN MOUNTAINS

Are you sleep deprived and energy drained from daily routines? Why not plan a relaxing holiday in the Mogan Mountains? Mogan Mountain, 60 km from Hangzhou, is 200 miles northeast of Shanghai. Surrounded by lofty bamboo trees, the central area houses stylish B&B’s which are ideal for a spring getaway. Turn off your phone and distance yourself from work and responsibilities for a little while. If you prefer a holiday rest, feel free to sit back, relax, sleep in, listen to music, read a book or clear your mind in the beautiful scenery. In September, the Mogan Mountain will become a palette of colours where a collection of red, orange and yellow leaves come together to form a vibrant, lively autumn. From: World.nzlife.nz

ANJI, SHANGRI-LA RECLUSE IN MOUNTAINS

If you are seeking for somewhere to clear your thoughts, the bamboo forest in Anji will be the perfect destination. Covering a total area of 60,000 hectares, a curtain of greenness stretches on infinitely. When you breathe in the fresh, cool breeze, you experience a soothing, purifying effect. As you venture deeper into the woods, you will hear the water currents in streams which eventually escalate and combine to form a powerful surge of waterfall. Continue the journey, and you will find yourself somewhere in Shangri-La, bewitched by nature’s charms. During sunrise, the Anji bamboo sea is concealed by light fog, appearing extraordinarily beautiful. Image Source: Google From: World.nzlife.nz
