At the golden waterway of Shanxi Brook, Xikou Drift serves a 60-minute journey for the whole distance of 4.5 kilometers, and visitors should go ashore at Wuling Park. The newly developed Xikou Drift by Xikou Tourism Group has stroke out in new directions. It gives the priority to “drift” and set up a series of featured recreational items at the starting point of the drift site. No wonder that experiences are diversified and joys are distinctive.
