Xixi – Unique and Peaceful Scenery 2018-11-16
There is a saying in China that says deep mountains don’t necessarily promise one a carefree life, while true secluded life is actually found in a bustling urban city where only the true hermit can achieve peace in his mind and heart. Xixi National Wetland Park in Hangzhou, the only urban wetland in China, is that kind of place where people can achieve their peace. The place is like a true hermit, which locates itself in the prosperous downtown Hangzhou and is still able to give people the ability to achieve peace in their minds and hearts.

If you want something peaceful, then head to Xixi National Wetland Park where there are all kinds of entertainment facilities to free you from your fast-pace urban life.
