This is the first time I have been to Wuyi Mountain. I would say this place is seperated into 3 areas
1) The attractions : This area and this is where all the mountains, rivers and local attractions. This area is closed at certain times as it is a labelled as a protected area
2) The attraction district : This is where tourist normally stay as it is nearer to the tourist attractions
3) The local town : This is where the local people stays, shop, eat etc. This is about 16km from the attraction district.
This hotel is in the attraction district. Walking distance to some of the local attractions in the attraction area but far from the local town.
In this attraction district, you will see mainly shops selling tea. At least 7 of 10 shops sells the local tea around here.
There is a bus stop in front of the hotel which you can take a local bus to the attractions or town and there is a ticket office directly behind the hotel for you to purchase the attraction tickets.
The prices of the tickets are the same everywhere unless you get the ticket from your local tour guide which might get a slightly cheaper discount. (Maybe about 50yuan off the actual ticket price)
A supermarket to the left of the hotel and a smaller convenient stall to the right of the hotel(if you exit from the back gate, if not, then it is all to the left.)
A local telcom company and a bank is to the right if you need an ATM.
To the right, there is a KFC, to the right, there is another fast food place.
At night, there is plently of food stalls to the back of the hotel if you like BBQ food. They have BBQ fish, meat, veg or fried dishes. Prices are reasonable, but you might want to check the price with them before confirming your order.
In the local town, there is some local street stalls, some clothes stalls, fast food, supermarket etc. Food is cheaper and you can get more variety here.
Taxi will cost 40yuan to the hotel. (Regardless coming or going). You can take the bus if you want, but it will take about 45 to an hour to reach the ciry from this hotel.
You can also walk to the local attraction - Yin Xiang Da Hong Pao from here. It is about 10 mins walk and along the way, there is some outdoor park with some figures which you can take a look at.
The breakfast is not too good, nothing much to chose from but it was acceptable. Coffee is 3 in 1 packs given there and hot water is from a flask so it is not piping hot.(This is very disappointing for someone who needs a cup of coffee in the morning).
When I was there the whole time, there was nobody in the resturant. I had to even take my own utensils.
Overall, hotel location is good, rooms are clean and nice. I loved the bed, it was very comfortable. Towels and amenities are available. It was worth the price.
