The major tourist attractions include Xian Causeway, Huiweng Pavilion, Nine-Dragon Wall and Chaoran Pavilion. On entering the scenic spot, and the first thing that catches the eye is the long causeway called Xian causeway between two bridges. The arching willows dance in the breeze on either side of Xian causeway.

The cobbled Xian causeway is both romantic and amorous, which is the first choice for local lovers to photograph the wedding.
