Qionghai Lake, Sichuan Province

Located about 5 kilometers from Xichang, Qionghai is the second-largest freshwater lake in Sichuan Province. Covering 31 square kilometers, it's blessed with crystal-clear water that reflects the magnificent mountains nearby to form a charming scenic spot.

Going for a float in a battery boat and tasting some barbecue on the lake would be a great way to enjoy Qionghai’s pleasant environment. One battery boat can hold four people and costs about 20 yuan (US$3.15) per hour to rent.

Once you're far from the shore, turn off the boat's battery and just drift. Local women sell roasted fish from small wooden boats, offering a delicious snack.

Biking is another great way to absorb the magnificent landscape around Qionghai Lake. Bikes can be rented lakeside.

Other attractions in the area include Qionghai Park, New Beach Fishing Village, Lotus Lake, Moon Bay, Sunshine Resort and Qinglong Temple.

Transport: Fly to Chengdu from Shenzhen International Airport and get to Xichang by train or coach. Take a bus or taxi to Qionghai Lake.

Delicacies: Shrimps, crabs, roasted and fresh fish, fish balls, fish-head soup, and vegetables.
