Walk into a beautiful wood land, decorated with cheap plastic birds. Then walk on to the sun and moon pool, which do look beautiful, but why is the water a chemical blue colour? Up to tiger spring, Most of the small spring is covered by a giant plastic tiger!! Then to the statue of the dreaming tigers constructed in 1983,... More

Hupao Spring is an interesting place to visit. Small waterfalls can be seen. It was fascinating to see the local people carrying Jerry cans to fill it up with a piped water spring. We were told that an excellent beverage was Hupao spring water with Longjing Tea, they go hand in hand. Enjoyed our walk along the footpaths of Hupao.

It has a natural water spring (not hot spring), and is named as the 3rd best natural water spring in the world (in China, they meant). Get in, walk up the path, bring with you an empty... More

This was a pretty spot to view. We weren't able to drink from the spring, but the area was just beautiful and worth seeing.
