Underwater Ancient City Reappears 2017-06-27
The Thousand-islet Lake is the largest man-made lake in eastern China and where the lake is now there used to dwell a city called Shi Cheng (Lion City). After the construction of the huge dam of Xin’an River Hydropower Station the former city was flooded and residents were evacuated. The site of the city still rests underwater and is well-preserved and referred to as Shi Cheng Underwater Ancient City.

Shi Cheng Underwater Ancient City has existed for 1339 years and was the political, financial, cultural and transportation center of Sui'an County.

2017 Qiantang River Tidal Bore Watching Guideline2017-09-22
Qiantang River is the largest river in Zhejiang Province and empties itself into the Eastern China sea through Hangzhou Bay. The Qiangtang River tidal bore is a world-renowned spectacle and is reputed as the "No. 1 Tidal Bore in the World". The Qiantang River tidal bore, often reaching heights of three meters, results from the gravitational forces and the rotation of the earth, and the fact that Hangzhou Bay is shaped like a trumpet.
