Ligulangyu is not big, sitting on the ferry and looking at the small island opposite the sea, I even thought: does this small island really have a beautiful view of the sea garden, does it really have the singing of the piano island?
After getting off the boat, there were tourists coming and going around, and they quickly joined them. Follow the local guide to walk in the direction of Haoyueyuan Scenic Area, and the trees will be lined along the way. The sound of the peacock is very strange and interesting to us. When we saw the peacock on the wall, we took out cameras to take pictures.
The tour guide said that there are almost no cars on the island. At night, except for the sound of birds and music, it is very quiet. It can be imagined how comfortable it is to live on an island without the whistle. When it s okay, you can walk on the beach alone, listen to the sound of the waves, smell the breath of the sea, oh, it has really become a modern paradise.
On the beach of Haoyueyuan, there are already tourists playing, facing the temptation of the sea, can t help but be excited, take off their shoes and rush to the beach. However, the sand is not very small, and occasionally step on a few stones So I didn t dare to run wild, huh, after I went home, I told my family about the beach there, and then compared with Zhujiajian s beach, I always felt comfortable without Zhujiajian s beach.The family said that maybe Gulangyu is a small island. The land is near, and the sand is not completely subdivided. Think about it, it may be true. However, blowing the sea breeze and walking on the edge of the waves are already very relaxing, and I want to sing aloud.
There are many scenic spots on Lugulangyu Island, and I don t remember it well. There are many birds in the 100-bird circle, and I lost it with my colleagues there, so I still write there, huh, leave a trace. 🙂
While visiting the 100 Bird Park, because I concentrated on feeding the pigeons, I turned around and found that my colleagues who came with me were gone. Xiaowan was a road blind, but fortunately, I finally remembered the way when I came, so I went all the way Back. The alley was long and quiet. When I came here, I walked with my colleagues and talked to each other. I didn t think the alley was very quiet, but I went down alone, except for the sound of footsteps. Any noisy sounds. You long alley, green trees reflection, walking quietly, it feels really good. Tired, you can sit on the stone bench on the side, but unfortunately, because you are afraid of being lost, I can only come here again next time.
When I walked to the entrance of the concert hall, there was no quiet alley in the street. Tourists were like weaving. I took my mobile phone to contact my colleagues, but I couldn t reach it. Finally, my mobile phone was out of power. On the steps of the hall, watching people coming and going, oh, maybe this experience can make me remember Gulangyu more clearly.
After browsing Gulangyu Island at about 4.30pm, the ferry left again. I saw some netizens saying that not living on Gulangyu Island is a big loss, I think so too. Because I have not heard of Gulangyu Island yet. The sound of the piano , a bit sorry.
