Peaceful & lovely

All sites were lovely - attendance as an observer at a temple service was moving & inspiring. Walks in natural settings were relaxing

The name that Trip Advisor provides this tourist attraction is a bit deceiving. Putuoshanzhen is one of the islands near Zhoushan. On the island there are a wide variety of things to do. You can catch a ferry to the island from Zhujiajianzhen. There isn't a bridge out to it. While my friends and I were there, we went to... More

on the island we visited 3 places: Puji Temple, Nanhai Guanyin Statue and the Buddhist Temple in the Purple Bamboo Forest and had lunch at Xilei Xiaozhuang Hotel. The Puji Temple was an amazing place with 9 magnificent Halls, 12 Pavilions, an 18m Multi-treasure Pagoda, covering an area of 14,000 sq m and fronted by the large Haijin Pool with... More

Never go there during any holidays. It is a very popular place in the area and there is a lot of people. It is difficult to come back.

We recently went to Zhoushan from Shanghai over a long weekend and made the mistake to only go for a day. The bus ride from Shanghai to Zhoushan took around 4 hours and was around 130RMB, departing from the long distance bus station. The bus dropped us off at the bus station terminal on Zhoushan but there was a shuttle... More

The mountain is dedicated to Guanyin, a goddess of mercy. Many of spiritual seekers come to visit this island. I was amazed to see a lot of Chinese oldies go there for spiritual retreat. Most are uphill, so prepare your stamina and comfort shoes before visit this.

Joined a group tour, as I found it difficult to navigate on our own. Lots of mini buses that tour groups use but hard for those who don't speak good Mandarin-- thats my observation. Might be easier for some. Enjoyed our time with early morning mass, vegetarian meals and some souvenir shopping. Tip: You need to purchase lighter within the... More
