Attractions

Wenfeng Pagoda is a landmark structure standing on Yingzhou Lu, the central artery of downtown. It was built in 1796 during the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911). Like the Kuixing (the god of literature) Tower at the southeast corner of the city wall of old city zone, Wenfeng Pagoda is also a Fengshui (Geomantic) tower. It is said that in order to reverse the weakening of the development of literature and the lack of famous literati and officials, these two brick towers were built in southeastern part of the city. The land is low-lying there which would prevent spiritual forces from overflowing outwardly from the ground. Kuixing Tower was first constructed in 1574 of the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). Wenfeng Pagoda was built later because locals determined that Kuixing Tower was not high enough. 

The West Lake of Yingzhou which is 15 kilometers (9 miles) west of the city proper is becoming a top attraction for a Fuyang Travel. The scenic area contains a stele forest, old style buildings, and garden buildings, all of which blend perfectly with the surrounding natural scenery. 

Other Scenic Spots: Bali River Scenic Area, Nanhu Park, Zhangzhuang Park

Fuyang Travel Tips

 History: Centered by Yingzhou (present city proper), its southern area was exploited first, while the northern region was changed later along with the ups and downs of Bozhou. Historically, Yingzhou and Bozhou are interrelated, but relatively independent. The domains of the two places were first unified during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). It was not until the early Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) that the name Yingzhou was changed to the present one.       
 
 Physical Features: It stands in a flat and vast fluvial plain region. Its terrain slopes gently downward from the northwest to the southeast. Huaihe River and its branches flow through the city.

There is no direct train service between the two. You may take bus Hang-Fu Commercial Line from Fuyang Bus Station to the terminus. Then, take a taxi to Hangzhou Railway Station for CNY 11. After that, catch a train to FY, Anhui Province (about 9 to 12 hours). :)
