Get out and explore the sites. Anxi County is highly regarded for its numerous types of oolong tea. Its most famous variety is Tieguanyin, also known as “Iron Goddess.” Visit the nearby China Tea Capital, a large center dedicated to showcasing this tea. Afterwards, head to the nearby Qingshui Yan Temple. Built high on Penglai Mountain and surrounded by green pines and bamboo plants, this large Buddhist temple is a sight to behold. In addition to its natural wonders, it also houses many cultural relics including stone tablets that map out the mountain. Other scenic areas showcasing mountains, river valleys, and basins include Mounts Qingyuan, Zimao, Xiangong, and Lingxiu.
Explore the city center to see the Kaiyuan Temple, the well-preserved East and West Pagodas, Qingjing Mosque, and Guandi Temple. The Puppet Museum and the Quanzhou Maritime Museum are both also excellent. Try some of the local cuisine, with such unique dishes as fried oysters, frozen siphon worms, noodles in meat soup, and fish pellets. Quanzhou also has a long history of making traditional handicrafts. Along with being one of China’s three porcelain capitals, this is a great place to find woven paper paintings, lacquered bamboo baskets, stone carvings, and puppet heads. You can shop for these and other items on Quanzhou’s commercial streets—Houcheng, Zhuangyuan, Daxi, and Zongshan Road.
