The best romantic places for lovers to visit in China

1. Old Town of Lijiang, Yunnan

Lijiang is full of romantic encounters and love stories, and the air here smells sweet and ambiguous. At night, the ancient town is even more dreamy, with resident singers playing guitars and singing ballads outside bistros and people clinking glasses and singing merrily in bars. Couples snuggle on the terraces of the small hotels and walk hand in hand in the sun - this is the life of the gods! Every autumn, legend has it that you can have beautiful love under a metre of sunshine in Lijiang. Couples can also enjoy the blue sky and the scent of nature's flowers on the nearby snow-capped mountains, as well as horseback riding and boating.


2. Hangzhou West Lake

There is a Chinese saying that there is a paradise above and Suzhou and Hangzhou below. For the sake of love, the ancient Chinese mythological legend of the White Snake, Bai Suzhen, was willingly crushed under the Leifeng Pagoda for 20 years. The West Lake in Hangzhou tells the story of this popular romantic love story, as well as the love story of Liang Shanbo and Zhu Yingtai. Hangzhou is also known as the capital of romance, with the West Lake Bridge where Bai Suzhen and Xu Xian met, the Wan Song Academy where Liang Shanbo and Zhu Yingtai studied together, and the romantic West Lake where couples can hold hands and take a night tour beside the romantic West Lake to experience the Chinese culture of love.


3. Yading, Tao Cheng, Sichuan

This is a less popular destination compared to the first two, having been the site of a video shoot for the famous Chinese pop star Jay Chou. Known as the last pure land on the blue planet, couples can come here to experience the purity of extinction, pristine nature, holy snow-capped mountains and flowers everywhere, making it a must-see destination for lovers.

It is a fairy tale, beautiful all year round, best in autumn when the red and yellow foliage and alpine meadows blend with the rivers and glaciers like a wonderland on earth.


4. Sanya, Hainan

Sanya, Hainan has many romantic places for couples to visit and is known as the "Hawaii of the East", a romantic and warm tourist destination. With its warm climate, sandy beaches and sea, you can experience the meaning of "the sea withering away". From the Lovers' Bridge, you can look out over the sea and sky and make a vow to each other at the end of the earth. Sanya has the Phoenix Ridge Rocks, the Tianya Cape, the Lovers' Bridge on Wuzhizhou Island, the Coconut Dream Promenade at Sanya Bay and the Li's Love White Deer Sculpture at Luhuitou Hilltop Park. On the Lovers' Bridge, you can see the beautiful picture of the sea and sky meeting, the end of the world and the vows of the sea. The film "Do Not Disturb 2" was filmed in Yalong Bay Tropical Paradise Forest Park, on the "Dragon Bridge" and "Yatang", with a wedding trial room and a glass walkway to witness romantic love.
