CHONGQING (CQNEWS) -- Whenever I hear Jay Chou's song Rice Fragrance (《稻香》), I feel as if I am in the field, listening to the songs, and feeling a piece of leisure and quiet. This kind of field life can also be found in the main city of Chongqing, and it is located on Guangyang Island in Nan’an District.
On August 22, the Island whose first phase of ecological restoration work has been completed as scheduled and started the trial operation. After being built, the Island is just like a Bayu version of Dwelling in the Fuchun Mountains. There are six experience sites with their own characteristics, and each of them is worth visiting.
If you come to the Island, be sure to get off at Comprehensive Demonstration Site which is currently the most popular station for tourists. Seeing layers of terraces and golden rice ears, visitors will not forget to sigh here that “it is so beautiful, happy and comfortable to smell the rice fragrance and touch the rice ears”. Next to the rice fields, wooden huts serve as resting places for many visitors, and it is quite pleasant to lie down on a row of rocking chairs near the rice fields; and next to the pond, there is a large vegetable field.
If you want to enjoy the view of river, you can go to the mountaintop viewing platform where you can overlook the magnificent Yangtze River, have a cup of coffee, and sit on a chair which seems like a vase to feel the river wind, which will make you feel extremely relaxed. One of the most anticipated is the muhlenbergia capillaris field where is planted with the muhlenbergia capillaris covering an area of several football fields. It is now green, and it is estimated that in one month later, the muhlenbergia capillaris will be in full bloom and the site will become the next hot scenic spot for visitors. In addition, Dongdaotou with vast grasslands, and Guangyang Camp where you can watch an ecological video exhibition, are both worth visiting.
Closed on Mondays and busy bookings on weekends
Upon entering the Island, if the weather is good, you can play slowly, and even playing for a whole day is not a problem, but you have to prepare some food and water. At present, private cars are not allowed on the Island. Therefore, you can choose the rail transit and transfer bus to the Island. It is worth mentioning that the Island after being built is very popular at present, especially on weekends, and you need to get the reservation ticket in advance. The reservation ticket is free, but you can’t go to the Island until you get it. Please remember that it is not open on Monday. (Translated by Liu Hongyan, Fathom Language Limited)
