Best Sites to Watch Qiantang River Tidal Bore

Haining City, about 50 kilometers from Hangzhou, is the most recommended city to watch Qiantang River autumn tide. There are three best locations in Haining – Haitang, Babao and Laoyanchang.

The first location is Haitang, located in the southeast of Yanguan Town. The tide features “Silver Lined Tide” (一线潮) with pageantry spectacularity. When it begins to arise far away, it appears in a silver thread, but as it gradually approaches, it becomes a wall of jade, a snow-laden ridge, bordering the sky on its way. Its gigantic roar is like thunder as it convulses, shakes, dashes and shoots forth, swallowing up the sky and inundating the sun, for its force is supremely vigorous.

The second location is Babao, about 8 kilometers east of Yanguan Town. Travelers can see two kinds of tidal waves striking each other violently. For the different terrain, the south bank tide is quicker than the north bank tide. The south tide is striking the north tide at the right time, plumes of water flew into the air and splashed up to a height of several meters with huge sound.

The third location is Laoyancang, about 12 kilometers west of Yanguan Town. The tide features “Returning Tide” (返头潮). Here, travelers can usually watch the tidal waves at 9 meters and 650-meter in length which seems like a huge arm making vigorous effort to turn the situation. When the tide rushing to “Dingzi Dam”, it suddenly becomes a lion springing, caused numerous of waves. At the same time, the tide turns its direction running to the bank with an extraordinary roar of anger, making views run away from the bank.

Besides the above three locations, there are many other locations to watch tidal bores, like Liuhe Pagoda, Jiuxi, Nanxing Bridge, City Urban Balcony, Sanbao, Qibao, Xiasha Bridge, Xiaoshan Tide Watching Town in Hangzhou.
