Queshi AAAA Scenery Area (Queshi Mountain Scenery, one of Shantou's Eight Sights)
Date: 2010/1/14    Editor: ellen76    View: 8645

As the first of Shantou's Eight Sights, Queshi Scenery Area is one of the tourist resorts first listed as provincial tourist resorts in Guangdong and first ranked as national AAAA attractions in Chaoshan region. Queshi Scenery Area is located between the south and north sections of urban Shantou, leaning against the south section and separated from the north section by the sea.

The word Que is defined in Cihai (the Grand Dictionary of Chinese Language) and Kangxi Dictionary as the sound that the wind or water makes over the rock or a mountain with a lot of boulders. The definition shows Que is in the form of a huge rock and rings with the sound of the rushing tides over the rocks. And Queshi has got its name from its proximity to the sea and its mountains with many rocks.

In Queshi Scenery Area, you will find marvelous views with green hills and unique rocks, simple local residences and western style villas left over from the colonial era, and subtropical vegetation in the coastal area. You will also appreciate the grandness, uniqueness, grace and tranquility in the sea, the hills, the rocks and the caves in the natural and cultural sights.

Grandness: In this scenery area, Mount Tashan, Mount Yanfeng, Mount Bijia and Mount Xianglu stand side by side under the blue sky and by the vast sea, a spectacular sight where the wind blows from a thousand miles away and the rolling cloud piles up in tiers. The cliff inscriptions In Mount Tashan, e.g., "the spring tides roll 800 miles in front of the first prefecture in the south", "absorbing all sources from across the world and exerting an influence over the Cantonese region", "crossroad in the cloud and street in the sky", and "a century old trade port that welcomes merchants boats from all countries" depict vividly the overwhelming Queshi.

Uniqueness: The rocks in this scenery area are basically of the granite. The spherical weathering carves the rocks into all kinds of unusual shapes, figures, holes and caves. The marvelous scene can be described as "the views are wonderful with the rocks but the most unique are with the caves".

Grace: The subtropical scenery in this area is incredibly beautiful with the green hills, clear water, floating clouds, rushing seas, chirping birds and blooming flowers. In Taohua Jian (the Peach Ravine), the winding brook threads peacefully under small bridges and through bamboos and flowers, typical of southern water scenery and in particular of the Chaoshan tradition.

Tranquility: In Queshi Scenery Area, all the caves, rocks and steps are quiet and peaceful, and in the Rainbow Cave of Mount Tashan and the Pine Valley of Mount Yanfeng, you can best savor the quietness.

礐石风景名胜区 AAAA (汕头八景之“礐石山光”)
日期: 2010/1/14    上传者: ellen76    阅读数: 8645

  礐石风景名胜区是广东省第一批省级风景名胜区,潮汕地区首批国家AAAA级旅游区,汕头八景之首。位于汕头市南、北市区之间,背靠南市区、与北市区隔海相望。
  礐,音确(què)。可于《辞海》或《康熙字典》查到此字的二个析义:一是风或水击石成声,为象声词;一是山多大石。以此解释,“礐”字不仅有巍峨巨石之形,且有海浪击石之声。礐石因濒临大海,山多巨石而得名。
  礐石风景名胜区是风景绮丽、丘峦簇拥、怪石奇峭,古朴的民居与殖民地洋楼并存,海湾环抱的亚热带植物为特色的滨海自然风景名胜区。以“海”、“山”、“石”、“洞”为景观构成要素,具有“雄”、“奇”、“秀”、“幽”特点的自然和人文景观。
  雄——礐石风景区内塔山、焰峰、笔架山、香炉山层峦迭嶂,海阔天空,磅礴苍溟,气象不凡,构成了“云翻峻阁千层浪,袖拂兰台万里风”的雄伟壮观场面。塔山的摩崖石刻“春潮八百里,南国第一州”、“海纳三江,气吞百粤”、“云衢天街”、“百载商埠,楼船万国”,形象的表述了礐石气魄雄浑的特征。
  奇——礐石的石景以其独有的花岗岩地质地貌为基础,球状风化使岩石形态各异,或洞、或穴,鬼斧神工,雕镂百态,出奇制胜,可用“山岩多胜景,洞府独称奇”来赞美这奇妙绝伦的景观效果。
  秀——礐石的风景山清水秀、云影海涛、鸟语花香,秀丽的亚热带风光,景色非常迷人。如桃花涧水波不兴,曲折深邃,小桥流水,修篁异卉,有江南水乡之秀美,更多潮汕风情之隽秀,令人回味无穷。
  幽——礐石的风景洞穴幽奥,山岩幽境,石阶通幽,层次幽远,清静幽然,都突出“幽”字。塔山的垂虹洞、焰峰的幽谷松涛,均是品“幽”的绝佳所在。
