[photopress:wenzhou.jpg,full,alignright]As a tourist destination Wenzhou has all of the natural assets but not enough of the tourist infrastructure. This will change. Wenzhou is a coastal city with 339 km of coastline with beautiful islands offshore. Dongtou, one of the counties in Wenzhou, is also called the ‘County of one hundred islands’.
Wenzhou also boasts wonderful landscapes with rugged mountains and tranquil waters, including three state-level scenic spots, namely the Yandang Mountain, the Nanxi River and the Baizhangji Fall-Feiyun Lake, and two national nature reserves, namely the Wuyanling Ridge and the Nanji Islands, among which Yandang Mountain has been named as World Geopark, while Nanji Islands listed as UNESCO’s Marine Nature Reserve of World Biosphere Reserves.
Wenzhou has a population of 873,000 and lies in southeastern Zhejiang. It borders Lishui to the west, Taizhou to the north, and looks out to the East China Sea to the east. It has a history as a foreign treaty port and its traditional economic role has been as a port giving access to the mountainous interior of southern Zhejiang Province.
It has, indeed, all of the natural assets. Now one of its hotels has been upgraded to reflect that.
Wenzhou Overseas Chinese Hotel (Huaqiao fandian) is a five star with all of the expected facilities for business people — meeting rooms, business center, international long-distance access, complimentary broadband access and all the other facilities travelling business people expect.
This is the first five star hotel in Wenzhou. Now expect more.
