The best time to visit Xiapu

The best time to visit Xiapu is from April through November, with May and October being the busiest months when numerous Chinese photographers gather in one location. 

During April and October, the locals harvest seaweed, providing opportunities for photographing the local farmer work scenes.

May and October are incredibly busy months in Xiapu, attracting hundreds of Chinese photographers who come to capture the same scenes. To avoid the crowds of tourists, we typically arrange photography workshops in June and September.

In April 2019, I captured this captivating scene at a location in Xiapu.
