When visitors come to Hengyang, they mostly choose bars or cafes to spend their nightlife. When you wander on the streets at night, you can find that many shops are still at work: restaurants, roadside eating stalls, bars, cafes and places for entertainment and dining.

But there are many activities tourists can take part in during the day. They are suggested to make accommodations near Mt. Hengshan Scenic Spot in order to experience a Buddhist life in the temples situated in Mt. Hengshan Scenic Area. They will also learn about the various kinds of Buddhism etiquette. This may be regarded as exceptional activity for entertainment. But indeed it is an interesting and meaningful activity. When you sit in meditation in the temple hearing rooster crow in the morning and a remote bell ring, you will forget all the worries in sub-celestial life. This is an effective method to search for inner serenity and can help us to better concentrate in later work and study.
