Beautiful sacred Buddhist island
paź 2020 • Znajomi
Beautiful bouddhist temples, beautiful scenery, pleasant strolls along paths on the mountain and along the road boarding the sea. Fresh air and refreshing sights of mountains, islets and sea.Recommend to visit Foding peak, Huiji temple, Fayu temple, Puji temple and Nanhai Guyin. Difficult to avoid the crowd of tourists and the faithful during high seasons.

Great Bhuddism Park
gru 2019 • Znajomi
Heard of this island for long, finally came for a visit! So they said, one day isn’t enough, yes, at least two! We quickly select four of the same halls since we have only one short day!
Do plan for at least two if you want to see a bit more, or go as early to have at least major four halls!
It is great for me, a bit rush!

Point of a Different Culture
paź 2019 • Wyjazd w pojedynkę
This place is very imposing. I suggest a visit for sure. The view is magnificent and the whole route until the big statue is amazing.
Also, the cost for the whole visit including the ferry from Zhoushan is about 250 CNY.

P.S.
from ferry terminal to statue is about 2 km (20-30min walk)
From statue to the main temple Is about 1,2 km (10-15min walk)
From ferry to main temple is about 1,5 km
(15-20 min walk)

There are local buses for these routes but you have to wait in the queue about 10-15 minutes.

Wonderful Weekend Trip: Temples & Beaches
lip 2019 • Wyjazd w pojedynkę
I think I was the only foreigner on the island, which was quite surprising. One reason for this is probably that there's very little English information out there on it, so hopefully I can leave some info here that can help the next person! While it's by no means a destination that should land on foreign tourists' itineraries, expats living in nearby cities should definitely consider it for a weekend trip. Anyone who likes a mixture of culture and nature should check it out; the temples were lovely, and the beaches were very nice (especially by Chinese standards haha).

I took a 4.5 hour bus from Shanghai South Station to Shinjiamen, Zhoushan on a Friday night, spending the night at a hotel only 10 minutes from the ferry dock. Ferries don't run very late into the night, so an overnight in town is probably necessary for most weekend trippers. One way is 140 RMB, there's one rest stop in the middle, and few quick stops along Zhoushan Island on your way in/out, and it was quite comfortable. You need your passport to get a ticket/board the bus. Foreigners aren't able to order online, so showing up in person to buy is unfortunately a must, though tickets likely don't need to be purchased in advance.

The ferry there is 30 RMB and about 15-20 minutes. A one time fee of 160 RMB is required upon arrival to the island.

Accommodation can be on the pricey end, especially on weekends, because of how popular the island is with Chinese tourists. I didn't book in advance and just showed up looking around Longwan Village where there are a number of cheaper guesthouses, but still was only able to negotiate down to 240 RMB for a very basic room. Online (ctrip,com) you'll see options for between 300-1000 RMB per night, depending on what you're looking for. This village area is where you'll find the most reasonably priced dinner options as well - outside of this area you'll be stuck at your hotel restaurant most likely.

There are cheap tourist buses connecting the different temples and beaches around the island, but if you came to be outside, some long walks around the island can be quite nice. Most temples are 5 or 6 kuai max, and the beaches are free. Download maps.me for a more accurate map of the island (and no need for a VPN).

Highlights:
-Puji temple
-Fayu temple (near where the hike up the mountain starts, but honestly the path is not very scenic and a LOT of steps in the heat, so maybe walk down instead of up haha and use the cable car instead - 40 RMB one way, 70 RMB two ways, pretty good views)
-Huiji temple (serves a 10 RMB vegetarian lunch from 11-12, and the viewpoint at the exit is nice)
-Guanyin Statue
-**Baotuo temple** (I didn't see this anywhere on the internet before I went, and for me it was the highlight of all the temples there - it's a massive and very beautiful complex, free to enter, and barely anyoneee there (the others will be crazy crowded!), right by the cable car station!)
-Wanfo pagoda (I honestly was too lazy and templed out to walk all the way up, but it looks nice haha)
-100 Step beach (has showers/lockers for a fee and some small restaurants/snack shacks, and a designated swimming area (CLEAN!), but will have plenty of people on it of course)
-1000 Step beach (no facilities, but totally empty! Swimming is at own risk)

Follow some walking paths around and you're sure to find lots of little monasteries or good views of the coast.

Ferries off the island go until 10 pm I was told, but the last bus to Shanghai Sunday night is at 6:10 pm.

Hope this is helpful to someone!

a must visit place
cze 2019 • Znajomi
visited this beautifully protected and environment friendly island with my friends. we have to walk a lot but it is a good exercise and worth. at times it is tiring but don't give up hope. of course you can sit and rest when ever you want. temple and site is beautiful and every one who visit Zhoushan must visit this place. you need a day to be made free for this tour. good restaurants are available in the island. I like the preservation of nature and hope they will maintain this island as it is.

Not worth the haul from Hangzhou
lut 2019 • Wyjazd w pojedynkę
Made a day trip visit from Hangzhou, it was a bit of a rush as it was about 4 hours each way. The temple and sights were OK, honestly Lin Ying Temple in Hangzhou was more interesting. Didn't really feel too holy with all the tourists, seafood restaurants, and a few of the monks were smoking. Lost a camera there and no one bothered to return it.

Wonderful Island to visit
gru 2017
There was a beautiful sea scenery to visit, and friendly people that warmly welcome us to their hostel. Don't forget to visit the biggest buddhist temple there (Puji Temple) and South Sea Guanyin statue (Nanhai Guanyin) to make your journey more interesting.

beautiful but crowded
maj 2018 • Wyjazd w pojedynkę
I stayed in ZhouShan for three days and spent one day for Putuo Mountain (on a Wednesday in May). One day is a bit tight for this beautiful holy mountain. I was fortunate to get advice from a local friend. So my visit covered four main locations from 10am to 6pm: spending the morning for giant GuanYing statue and surrounding scenes, then visiting three major temples in the afternoon. I took the cable cart to climb the mountain and walked down the hills to visit the three major temples. You should find plenty of scenery photos online of this place, so here I attached one photo of the crowds. I was told that it would be more people in the summer time. Please be prepared for noise and a lot of people. Many people burn a LOT of incense, which is bad for the environment. In ZhouShan, the city requires her citizen to only burn three incenses (packed in one paper box) per person (costs 1 Chinese Yuan = roughly 20 US cents) for a better environment. Also, no private vehicles are allowed on the island. However, local mini-van buses are convenient. Each bus ride costs 5-10 CNY. Moreover, each scenery location requires a small entry fee—usually 5 CNY, in addition to the main entry fee 160 CNY. So please bring plenty of cash. Please note all entry fees goes to the local government. If you want to donate money to the Buddhist temples, please put your cash into those wooden boxes, which you will see in every temple where people donates. Hope you enjoy the beauty of Putuo regardless the crowds and many fees!

Beautiful temples& scenery on this scared mountain-island
kwi 2018 • Znajomi
Putuo Mountain is one of the four holy Buddhist mountains in China and a national scenic spot. It is one island among 1390 islands of Zhoushan archipelagos. Mt. Putuo is home to temples (including Puji Temple (being the most famous of the temples), Huiji Temple and Fayu Temple), nunneries, monasteries, beautiful scenery, great fresh air, and more.

For part of our visit there were strong winds and rough waters. Our ferry ride was very bumpy.

Travel tip: Before I commence my trips, I take a photo of my destination names in both English and Chinese. Then enroute, I’ll ask for directions whenever I am concerned that I might not be going the right way.
