After visiting Mei Yuan, we went to the bus station for waiting for the local traveling bus. Surprisingly,this bus comes each one hour,we need to wait next one about 40 minutes. We got on the bus at half past 12. There are a few people in the bus, so we could find two good view seats. The bus across the caves, and drove along the lakeside. Half an hour later, I saw the second tourist tour which is named NianHuaWan. Before we arrived, the staff has been waiting for us at the station. I bought the tickets the day before yesterday, we needn’t join the queue. Because the scenic spot is so large, we can’t find the room by ourselves. There are not many people was living here because of the raining day and the quiet business season. The houses are very retro in the whole scenic spot. It looks like the architecture of Tang Dynasty. After a few minutes rest, we decided to eat hot pot. A lot of restaurants in this scenic spot, for example, local refreshments bar, milk tea shops, BBQ, Korean & Japanese food, but all of them are small. The hot pot is high opinion online, I didn’t think it tastes good. We came back to the room to have a rest after lunch until 6.
