I want to visit Wuyi Mountain. Do you have any recommendation of it?

Name:Re:Wuyi Tour

First of all, thanks for your asking. Wuyi Mountain is famous for its Dahongpao tea. There is a tea tree on the mountain but can only grow a little tea, therefore, Dahongpao tea is very expensive. And thanks to the abundant sunshine and high rainfall, Wuyi Mountain is heavily forested with a variety of flowers and trees. So you will be allured by the fresh air to take deep breathes. It ‘s a perfect place for being a immortal by tasting tea and breathing fresh air here every day.
