Putuo Mountain Buddhist Temples

A July 2005 trip to Zhejiang by Pat travel

Quote: This is a beautiful mountain island off the coast of China, near Ningbo. It is full of temples and monks.

Putuo Mountain Buddhist Temples

Overview

Quote:
It was very interesting to see the temples and monks practicing Buddhism. The temples are very beautiful, with lots of Buddha statues. You can enter the temples even if you aren't Buddhist.

Quick Tips:

It is an island, so it is more expensive than other parts of China. Go with a group. Don't forget your swimsuit, because there are some beaches that are nice.

Best Way To Get Around:

You can walk around the island and see all of it by foot. Also, you can pay and ride in buses from certain places to another.

Thousand Step Beach

Attraction

Quote:
It was unlike any other beach I have been to, because, in the background, there were temples in the hills. The water was nice and there is a big swimming area. It is kinda cool as a Westerner to stand on the other side of the Pacific Ocean.
