Meizhou Island is the birthplace of Mazu and the birthplace of Mazu culture. Mazuzu Temple - "Mazu was worshipped as a sea god, and the emperors of all dynasties also awarded her the honorary titles of "Heavenly Princess", "Heavenly Queen", "Heavenly Virgin Mother" and so on. The Mazu Temple on Meizhou Island is the ancestral temple of more than 3,000 Mazu temples in the world today. It is a common place of worship for Mazu believers at home and abroad. Every year, Mazu's birthday (March 23) and ascension day (September 9) are celebrated here with a grand pilgrimage ceremony. The ancestral temple was built in the Song Dynasty and has undergone renovation and expansion for generations. Now it is very magnificent and has the reputation of "the Potala Palace on the Sea". The main hall "Tianhou Palace" has a gold body of Mazu Zhangmu for thousands of years. The inscription "Shenzhaohai Table" hanging on it is the imperial pen of Emperor Yongzheng of the Qing Dynasty. Tianfei's hometown - "is a museum, with three floors, about six or seven pavilions, mainly introducing Mazu's life, as well as the seal of successive dynasties, cultural relics, picture exhibitions and so on. Golden Beach - "Beach scenery is general, the sea water is not very clear, compared with other islands, there is no special. After visiting the Mazu Temple on Meizhou Island, it is still very pleasant to come here and see the sea and blow the sea breeze. Traffic - "Take a car to the dock, then take a speedboat or ferry to the island, the journey is about 15 minutes. The shuttle fare is 105 yuan and the ferry fare is 85 yuan. The Mazu Temple and the Tianfei Museum on the island no longer buy tickets. The Mazu Cultural Park costs 30 yuan. Purchase of tickets is a real-name system, which requires identity cards. If there is no ID card, the tickets can only be purchased by issuing identity certificates at the nearby police station. After purchasing tickets, I. D. check tickets directly and enter the waiting hall at 7:30, 8:30... every hour. When the ship arrives at the shore, there will be one way exit and two buses. The routes are : Meizhou Wharf-Mazuzu Temple-**********-Golden Beach-********-Goosetail Shrine Garden. The whole journey is two yuan per ticket. Few people go on New Year's Day. According to local people, except March 23 and September 9 of the lunar calendar every year, summer vacation and Spring Festival are the peak seasons, and the rest are the off-season.
When we arrived at Putian, we did not catch up with the ferry on Meizhou Island. We lived near Wanda Square. The next day, we went to the ferry terminal by car and took a speedboat. The development of Meizhou Island was getting better and better. It was just a little cold, windy and the special tourist line. Mazu Film and TV Cultural Park, the scenic spots inside were very interesting, the Dragon Palace was very interesting, the ocean hall and all the scenic spots were very characteristic. Golden beach, walk along the beach, watch the waves rush to the beach, because it is cold, can not go to play with water, pick up seaweed with friends on the beach, very leisurely stroll, go to a relaxed and simple city to experience a simple little life! __________
Meizhou Island has a good scenery. I like Goosetail Stone Garden best. It feels great to walk among the stones on the cliffs by the sea. Golden beach has fine sand and wide beach. The Mazuzu Temple and the cultural park behind it are also very beautiful. But it's not good to charge another fee for the individual scenic spots on the island after the 65 yuan ferry charged for going to and from the island for 20 yuan. The area of Meizhou Island and Putuoshan Island in Zhejiang Province is not good, and the shape of the island is somewhat similar. The island has convenient transportation, including buses and sightseeing bottle cars. There are hotels and restaurants on the island, but they are a little expensive. If you have time, you can stay for one night, and a day trip from the city to the island is entirely within reach, but you must go to the bus earlier in the morning.
Meizhou Island tickets are not expensive, 65 yuan into the island, 20 boats to and fro, 40 boats, Mazu Temple is worth visiting, Mazu culture is very strong, can not be described in words, you have to go to personally feel, because this time into the island, time is limited, only to the Shiyuan and Mazu Temple, other places have no time to go, unfortunately. In a word, the island has beautiful scenery and the Mazu culture is very shocking! ___________
Valentine's Day rose overnight to go to Meizhou Island, when it was still dark, I wanted to see the sunrise, but it turned out to be cloudy. In the morning, a long line of people arrived at Meizhou Island by ferry. It was disappointing. The Mazu culture was shocking. The Mazu statues inside were too many to see. The Golden Coast over there was also good.
Meizhou Island is the source of Mazu culture. The 200 million people around the world show the importance of Mazu culture in the minds of Chinese people. The island is well-equipped, the price is a little expensive, the attractions are good, if you want to take a passenger ship, remember to book early, of course, the speedboat is not necessary, but it has to queue for a long time.
Located 42 kilometers southeast of Putian City, Fujian Province, Meizhou Island is the second largest island in Putian City and the birthplace of Mazu. Meizhou Island is known as "Penglai of the Southern Country" and has more than 30 scenic spots such as the exciting Meiyu tidal sound, "Hawaii of the East" Jiubaolan Golden Beach, "Little Stone Forest" Goosetail Stone, and more than 200 million Mazu temples believed by Mazu followers.
Meizhou Island is a beautiful tourist attraction, especially the golden beach. The waves are beautiful one after another. The whole person standing there is refreshed by the sea breeze. When he arrives at Meizhou Island, he wants to make a sightseeing bus. Then he will take you to all places to play, as well as the movie and television city. In a word, it's very good, very happy and a trip.
We went to Mazu Temple and Golden Beach on Meizhou Island. Mazu Temple has a free and toll-free part. Golden Beach is very good and free. We can rent motorcycles and swim on the beach. In addition, the recommendation of rental electric car travel, self-driving is really cool, the owner is very good, send maps will also recommend hotels, conscientious stores. Attached are some photos.
