Wangchun Prison in Ningbong, eastern China's Zhejiang province, is a large-scale prison mainly for male offenders who are sentenced fixed-term imprisonment of less than five years.
Life of the inmates is normal. They spend five days in learning skills, one day in study and have one day off every week. They also accept ideological education every night. They can do a wide variety of activities in spare time, including reading, playing basketball and watching TV.
The daily meals are cooked in the canteen and samples will be set aside for the police on duty to foretaste and keep.
Once the prisoners fell ill, the jail police will send them to health clinic in the prison; if the situation is serious, they will be sent to hospital immediately.
Maybe it is the happiest time for them to meet with their family members.
