We traveled from Shanghai by car, and the road trip took around 3 hours. We arrived at night and checked into the motel. In the morning, we travelled to the Yandang mountain attraction and passed by the town center. The town is really small, not commercialized for tourists just yet. Surrounding the town would be all the mountains and scenery which is just beautiful! The town itself is considered developed, with short buildings here and there, not the village kind of feel.
Yandang mountains is part of Wenzhou county in China, and it's specialty is seafood as they sit between the sea and a river. There is a kind of crab there which sometimes pops into the sea for a little, then goes into the river for a little, which makes it a seafood specialty! Definitely a must-try! Go during the autumn months October-November as I heard those are the seafood months :)
I would suggest to rent a mini-bus or car if you are on a free-and-easy trip as it makes moving around a lot more convenient as the attractions are quite some distance away from the town center.
