Catering the features of independent travelers, some scenic spots put on activities focused on interaction.
The TV & Film City in Xiangshan is crowed with tourists as well. With well-decorated yards, tea-houses and hotels, coupled with other settings of Song Dynasty such as ancient wedding, sugar-coated figurine and peanut cakes, the tourists can experience a real life time-travel.
Some other interesting festivals are also available. For example, the long-awaited opening ceremony of Seafood Festival in Xiangshan, the group wedding ceremony in Wulei Mountain, Cixi, and the Tofu Festival in Ninghai.
