Wuyi Shan, also called Mount Wuyi or Mt.Wuyishan, was honorably placed in the list of the top 10 happiest places onearth by Lonely Planet, the world's largest travel guide book and traveler's onlinecommunity, digital media publisher as well.
Wuyi Shan shares the honor with other 9 places, including beautiful Pacific island Vanuatu, hilarious Montreal of Canda, self-claimed "town without a frown" Happy of Texas in USA, the on-land paradize Bhutan, tropic Coloumbia, the "warm heart of Africa" Malawi, Andorra, the northern European highlands Denmark and Hidakagwa of Japan.
In the appreciative comment of Wuyi Shan,Lonely Planet says as follows.
Despite its winsome name, Tian Xin Yong Le(the Ever-Happy Temple) is surrounded by drink sellers and an unromantic carpark. Still, it's no surprise that the building is perpetually cheerful. Thetemple in Fujian Province's rugged north sits in a realm of secret valleyssplashed with waterfalls and pocked with mysterious caves. Use hewn rock stepsto explore, skirting tea bushes and bamboo groves to access Water Curtain Caveand Heavenly Tour Peak. Or take to the water - simple rafts topped with rattanchairs will float you down Nine Twists River, while guides point out the4000-year-old niches carved in the cliff faces above. (Quote from LonelyPlanet)
