Best Time of Year:

May to Oct.

Since ancient times, Yiyang has been famous as a land of fish and rice. Located where the Zijiang River empties into Dongting Lake, the area has a temperate climate.The city’s landscape consists of vast Dong Ting Lake contrasted with various snow-capped peaks; here you will find one half of the city is taken by mountains and the other by waters.

In the land of bamboo in Taohuajiang, you may enjoy a cup of tea in a farmer's house, watch a dance show and drink some of the local wine. Be careful, it’s rather easy to get lost in Yiyang’s vast sea of flowers. Heshan District owns many large fishing grounds with a total area of over 7,000 hectares, where tourists may go fishing and taste the delicious fish prepared by local fishermen.

The city is categorized as having a “subtropical humid monsoon climate,” meaning the annual average temperature is a bit higher than its neighborhood regions. Comparatively, it has cooler summers and warmer winters.

Some historical sites of interest include  the Bamboo Sea, Anhua Ancient Tea-horse Road Scenic Spot, Taohuajiang Forest Park and Yiyang Olympic Park.
