It is on Xinsha Island in the Fuchun River, 30 kilometers from urban Hangzhou. The island is 4.1 2 square kilometers in area and has a population of less than 1,000. It offers a strong local color, with birds twittering in mulberry trees, the fragrance of flowers drifting in the air, golden sand spreading on the beach, and houses of grey tiles and white-washed walls enclosed with bamboo fences. Visitors to the island will have a chance to experience the traditional way of life in areas south of the Changjiang River. They could take a bamboo raft to drift on the Fuchun River, ride an ox cart around the island, join the local residents in making paper by hand, pedaling a waterwheel, working in the fields with traditional farm tools, picking mulberry tree leaves, raising silkworms, spinning cloth, and weaving straw sandals, watching goats locked in fighting and song and dance performances as well as attending other tourist programs with an Oriental cultural flavor.
