Isolated and quiet in the middle of
the Li River and opposite ancient Daxu Village,
Maozhou Island has only 0.6 k?O of land to give
to her residents for dwelling and farming.
The whole island is covered by evergreen
vegetation----lovers' bamboo, pomelo and orange
trees and vegetables, with small houses merged
in between. The island dwellers eat gourd as a
gourment food, and every family grows gourd around
their houses, so it is also called the Gourd Island.
Villagers on the small island
still live a simple life by farming and fishing.
With great courtesy and hospitality, they have
special food and nice clean guest rooms to entertain
