“Beautiful meditation retreat”

Yaoxi Scenic Resort of Wenzhou
Reviewed 30 June 2014

My bestfriend who is a local resident of Wenzhou suggested I visit this hidden oasis. We took a half hr cab from our International Hotel for 70rmb. Worth every penny! As soon as we arrive we saw the beautiful clear aqua blue lake which looks untouched. The air was fresh and crisp. On our way to the to hike up the mountains we met a nice farmer working on his potatoe farm. He looked strong and perhaps utmost 60 yrs old. Told us a brief history of the place and himself. Turns out he was 81! Must be the fresh air and simple life I'm guessing. My bestfriend and I did a 3 hrs hike total. There were very little travelers as it was a mid week but we enjoyed it very much. Be prepared for thousands of little steps which can add to a nice cardio work out. The scenic view was pretty all throughout. As you climb higher it gets prettier and absolute silence. Very therapeutic and mediating. There's only 1 little snack shop throughout the hike so bring snacks and water if you plan to stay longer. We saw a girl hiking with high heel boots, totally not recommended as she was clinging on to her boyfriend. Bring hat and sunglasses if you're hiking midday. Enjoy the hidden oasis in bustling Wenzhou!
