Why is Yingjiang National Wetland Park So Special
Yingjiang National Wetland Park still maintains the basic appearance of the river and wetland without much artificial modification, and is full of “wild interest”. Standing in front of the empty square, overlooking the golden reeds, it is like a picture of a stretch of color. A gust of wind blows, the reeds sway in the wind, neatly fall in the same direction, a strain of reeds push each other, rushing to the distance, like rolling up thousands of waves. The scenery in front of visitors was so intoxicating that it was too late to listen to what the guide said, and everyone rushed to the reeds.
Walking into the wetlands, you can faintly find a variety of waterfowl figures, wild ducks, egrets in large groups, playing in the water, which constitutes the beautiful picture with the reeds. Being close to nature and staying away from the hustle and bustle is the deepest feeling of the Yingjiang National Wetland Park. Looking at the swaying reeds, take a deep breath, the air is filled with a touch of earthy aroma, for those who have lived in the city for a long time, this is a place where you can recover your original simplicity.
There are quite a few places where you can enjoy the sunset glow. However, in Yingjiang National Wetland Park, there is another feeling that is unique. Standing on the plank road, in the distance, the sky and the earth are connected together, the sunset glow of the sky and the sunset on the lake reflect each other; in the vicinity, the scattered ponds look like the mirrors; the bright red setting sun are placed on the water, and the villagers who wear the baskets walk through the bamboo bridge and could not see the appearance, but the figure is very clear. Such a simple life scene is picturesque in the golden sunset.
