This city, with its unique scenery and colorful folklore, is a magnet for tourists. The most famous scenic spot is Tailao Mountain. Tailao Mountain Scenic Area is 58 kilometers south of Fuding city proper. Surrounded o­n three sides by the sea and mountains o­n the other, strangely shaped rocks and caves, and precipitous peaks shrouded in dense mist are to be found in this scenic area. Some caves stretch right down to the seashore, providing ideal settings for watching the ocean waves, while others lead up to the mountain summit, a particularly suitable spot to sit and gaze at the sunrise. Some caves are small, with the capacity for just a few people, while others are large enough for o­ne thousand. Some of the large caves have smaller o­nes leading off them, forming a labyrinth.
In the late spring and early summer, the Tailao Mountains are often veiled in mist, particularly after a rainfall. When viewed from a distance, mountain peaks loom through a sea of clouds. In clear weather, the mountain summit is the perfect place to view sunrise over the sea.
During the Tang and Song dynasties (618-1279), these mountains were well known for their 36 temples, all o­n different scales, scattered throughout. Unfortunately, most of them have fallen into ruin, but there are 360 stone pillars still standing o­n the site of the Guoxing Temple. Visitors in the vicinity of the temple may also appreciate the ancient stone tables and stone carvings of figures, animals and flowers. Ruiyun Temple, first constructed in 936, and after undergoing several enlargements, maintains its magnificent aspect.
At the foot of the Tailao Mountains in the southwest gently flows the Lanxi stream. From its lower reaches runs the Jiuli (Nine Carps) stream, extending 26 kilometers. When rafting downstream, visitors are amazed at the stretching and undulating mountains, with their summits cloaked in clouds. They may also be pleasantly surprised at the boldness of fish busily searching for food. These fish are not disturbed by strangers o­n rafts, but are often swept away by swift currents from the upper reaches of the stream.
Fuding attracts visitors not o­nly with its unique scenery but also with its local culinary specialties -- Siji grapefruit, a fruit frequently featured at state banquets for its distinctive fragrance and exquisite taste, and Binlang sweet potatoes, which after being cooked and mashed make a delicious dessert. Local people usually greet their distinguished guests with this dish. Nowadays, pre-cooked Binlang sweet potato is a popular dish at state banquets, after having been slowly heated for a few minutes and its flavor enhanced with edible oil, sugar, sesame, peanuts and other condiments.
