Cicheng is very quiet, there are no murmurs of noise, no sound of wheels running across the road, quietly hearing his own breath and his own heartbeat.
In the breath, the whole city is full of camphor flowers, there are camphor trees lingering, there are really camphor flowers, it is the season when camphor flowers bloom, the city is full of fragrance, tall and green camphor trees fall everywhere.
It's not just Cicheng with camphor flowers, but Ningbo Mancheng with camphor flowers. From this it can be inferred that camphor is a Ningbo tree. Cinnamomum camphor represents Ningbo, while Fenghuang wood represents Xiamen. Is it because of the spirituality of the camphor and Fenghuang wood or their adaptability? In the late spring and early summer, the fragrance of millet-like yellow laurels and the mid-summer festival's fiery red phoenix emperor, which is more poetic? Some people joked about the special characteristics of Xiamen Special Economic Zone. The city flower is not called flower called plum (bougainvillea), the city bird is not called bird called heron (egret), and the city tree is not called tree called wood (fenghuang wood). SAR. Since May, Heron and Mu became representatives of Xiamen, they have not seen the "flooding" of these three specialities in Xiamen. The camphor tree in Ningbo is a dark day, but its emerald green, its thick shade, and its aroma have a faint meaning, so that no other sidewalk trees on the road can be seen. It is said that because there are many lines on the camphor wood, it seems to have a lot of meaning. Therefore, the word "chapter" is added next to the wooden word, and because of its unique aroma of the tree body and flowers, "camphor" is used as the tree name. Cinnamomum camphora is an evergreen tree. Its evergreen is not deciduous, but after the new leaves grow in spring, the old leaves of last year began to fall off, so it is green all year round.

It is the only handmade DIY creative park built in Chenghuang Temple in China. This is a pioneering work of developing tourism in Cicheng Ancient Town. Although locals are complaining that the speed of Cicheng development and restoration is too slow, it delays the golden opportunity for the development of ancient towns. When ancient towns such as Fenghuang, Lijiang, Wuzhen became popular At that time, Cicheng was still so silent that he still kept his heart.
Cicheng Ancient Town has abandoned the traditional and exaggerated business model of Chinese ancient towns, and implanted the soul of Chinese handicrafts in an attempt to revitalize the entire ancient town with good taste craftsmanship. And this mode of thinking and development about the ancient town is unique in the whole country and even the world. In the ancient county town pattern rarely seen in the south, Cicheng's commercial taste is still not strong, and various folk and folk activities and hand-made on holidays are very suitable for adjusting the floating ecology.
Therefore, from the aspect of mind-building, for a traveler, for whatever reason, Cicheng, the first ancient county in the south of the river located at 30 degrees north latitude, is a place worth visiting, and Ningbo is also worth a walk. local.
