Sixi(Si Stream in English), a famous scenic area in Zigui (A county of Yichang city), is called “a natural oxygen bar” by tourists. It is 12 kilometers away from the Three Gorges Dam. “Wanmuzhuhai” (a huge garden  in which ten thousand mu of bamboos are growing) is the first wonderful sight here and it’s also the second biggest bamboo garden in China. There are more than 300 sorts of bamboos. You can walk through the bamboo garden, take a rest in the bamboo hut, lie on the bamboo bed, swim and raft on the lake;you can also appreciate the local Tujia songs and dance shows.

Here, vegetation is very rich and many rare trees are growing well. Take the “Money Tree” as an example, the fruit of money tree is very extraordinary. It’s round and it has a diameter of three centimeters; there is a little hole in the middle of it and it looks like Chinese ancient coin. When you shake the tree,the “money” falls down. This is why people call it Money Tree.
  
 The Sixi area is well preserved both naturally and historically then you can also find some rare animals living here, such as leopard cat, macaque and wild goat.
