About Gouqi Island:
Gouqi Island is famous for its well-preserved fishing villages and cultures, the largest aquatic farm in China and the Mountain and Sea Wonders (山海奇观) rock that was believed to be left by General Hou Jigao of Ming Dynasty, who defended the south-eastern coast against the raids from wokou. Gouqi Island incorporates nearly 400 islands known as Shengsi Archipelago, which is purported to be the largest archipelago of China. Being part of the municipal area of Zhoushan city, the tourism and service industry of Gouqi Island has generated considerable economic values for this rural region. Due to the rapid advances of its diversifying industries, many fishing villages of Zhoushan have been abandoned today. Some of the best preserved villages are located in Gouqi Island.
The guest house is located in the most developed area of Gouqi Island. Meanwhile, it is only a stone’s throw away from the King Beach, the largest and most beautiful beach of Gouqi Island. The rural inn is a satisfactory place to live in compared with other guesthouses on this island. It is furnished with LCD television, AC and a toilet. Free Wi-Fi is also available. As for meals, the enthusiastic and hospital A-yi with culinary proficiency will treat you with authentic local special dishes like extensive fresh seafood.
