  • Points of Interest

The first adventure on your DreamTrip in Fujian Province is an exciting nature tour. Get your camera ready for photos of the crystalline crater lake (Tianchi) and the idyllic grasslands of Yunding Park, as well as the park’s terraced rice fields. Enjoy a sightseeing cableway ride over the glacier gorge for an equally picturesque view of the site’s waterfall and surrounding alpine valley. Then take part in a lively treasure hunt among the QQ Egg Houses, a whimsical grouping of egg-shaped dwellings.

Venture out the next day to discover the landmarks and lore of Pingtan (also called Haitan Island). Cruise on Haitan Bay to see the geological oddity Banyangshifan Rock, an enormous stack of granite that resembles a ship sailing on the northeastern waters of the island. Back on land, head to the opposite end of Pingtan to participate in the carnival revelry at Haitan Ancient City.

Use your free time to explore Fuzhou at your own pace. Popular attractions include Sanfang Qixiang (“Three Lanes and Seven Alleys”), a neighborhood that has evolved into a living museum, and Xichan Temple, a site renowned for its historic beauty and the throng of lychee trees that were planted over 1,000 years ago.

What we love:
• Fujian bodiless lacquerware — “bodiless” from the original mold being removed at the end — is known as 1 of the 3 traditional Chinese handicrafts, and Fuzhou is famous for its skilled artisans and high-quality pieces.
• Within walking distance from your hotel is the cultural heart of Fuzhou, Wuyi Square, a bustling local meeting place.
• QQ eggs are deliciously sweet waffle cakes that are enjoyed throughout the region.

  • Destination
    Travelers who pass through Fuzhou, the capital of Fujian Province, en route to other destinations in China’s south, are missing an opportunity to discover a hidden gem. This old port city was introduced to the West by famed explorer and trader Marco Polo. His presence there was no surprise since this coastal city, facing the East China Sea and mirroring Taipei directly across the Taiwan Strait, was once the leading exporter of tea in all of China. Its cultural influence also involves music, specifically Min Opera. Still popular throughout Fujian and other Southeast Asian countries, this unique style of music is sung in the provincial dialect and accompanied by traditional instruments. And those travelers lucky enough to stop in Fuzhou will also encounter 1 of the 4 regional cuisines of the province — one marked by light, flavorful dishes that emphasize a savory umami taste and showcase the inherent flavors of the fresh local seafood and other ingredients.
  • Platinum Inclusions
    On top of other exciting excursions, Platinum Members will be treated to a half-day, per-person tour of Fuzhou on Day 4 (2:30-8:30 p.m.). Visit the Lin Zexu Memorial, the Sanfang Qixiang historical area, Zhuzi Workshop, and the former residence of the beloved writer Bingxin. Life is great when you’re a Platinum Member!
