It’s a true blessing that the city planners of Fuzhou seem to consistently care about green spaces in this relatively densely populated city.  Noticeably there have been new or enlarged parks emerging on the map of Fuzhou,  but no others could tender the heart of the locals or arouse their childhood memories like Westlake (or Xihu) Lake does.   It was the go-to destination for all the school trips and family weekend get-away until 2000’s,  as well as one of the first things coming through their mind when they wanted to take their date out – in the park or out in one of the bars lining the lake front.  (more…)

the Banyan King

Fuzhou National Forest Park is one of 10 largest forest parks in China and covers an area of 860 hectares.  It’s located in the northern suburbs of the city and nestled in a valley surrounded on three sides by green hills and one side by the clear Bayi Reservoir. Although being around for almost six decades (founded in 1960) as an established research park, many special gardens in there featuring flowers (e.g. plum/peach/cherry blossoms) are actually new and there’re efforts to introduce more entertaining programs in addition to the ones already in use such as barbecue, boat rental and a kids fun fair.  The park is home to more than 2,500 species of rare plants.

Inspired by Alexandra Arch & Forest Walk in Singapore, Fuzhou government decided to build something similar, but in greater scale and length, to our dear city of banyan trees. The man-made wonder was named Fudao, meaning ‘trail of fortunes’. Legend had it that a donkey caravan, instead of all the heavy machinery, was employed to transport building materials in order to minimize the impact to the nature during its construction from 2015 to the end of 2017. Since its opening to the public, Fudao has been gaining popularity among locals and visitors alike due to its treetop experience unlike any before. (more…)
