Drum Hill 

The most popular attraction in Fuzhou is indisputably Gushan - the Drum Hill, resting on the northern shores of Minjiang River. A massive natural rock formation in the shape of a drum is perched at the hilltop, where it simulates the percussion effect during a downpour.

Visitors can hike up the mountain, absorbing the stunning scenery and pristine natural landscape surrounding the 1,800-meter long trail.

With a history of more than 1,700 years, West Lake Park has three islets namely Yao Jiao Island, Xie Ping Island and Kaihua Island. Walkways of the park are straddled by peach trees wrapped with blossoms in all sorts of pink hues. There are many willow trees and they also adorn the entrance of the West Lake Park.

Another attraction is the stretches of alluring tulip gardens filled with bright crimson, yellow and pink tulips in full bloom.
