China Travel Guide: Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province
Xixi Wetland Park in Hangzhou


Xixi Wetland Park, Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province

Unlike Hangzhou's West Lake which has an enduring reputation among international travelers, the Xixi wetland is young but rose to fame rapidly. Eight years ago, the region was nothing but fish ponds and farmlands connected by crisscrossing waterways. Then the wetland enjoyed a sudden boom after being chosen as one of the background settings for veteran Chinese director Feng Xiaogang's romance film "If You Are the One" in 2008.

Within five miles of West Lake, the park is a large natural wetland situated inside the densely populated city. It is nicknamed "kidney of Hangzhou" for its pristine air and extensive green vegetation. The wetland reduces the temperature of its surrounding 15-square-kilometer premises by more than a degree, a considerable contribution to the city's eco environment.

Another reason the wetlands have been promoted is that the local service sector has improved considerably.

For the past two years, the park's administrative office has implemented a series of modifications such as the introduction of hot water to its public toilets to larger constructions like the expansion of a theme village where tourists can relax in a café or visit art exhibits.

During Spring Festival season, a series of celebrations will be held in the wetland park to attract visitors including a lantern fair, an opera performance and a night market.
