Boao Jade Belt Beach

Reviewed By Batikh - Shenzhen, China

Filled with hawkers and people exploiting and abusing Sea Turtles. You can hold one and take a photo but these animals are being abused and held captive until they die. This is blatantly illegal as they are a protected species and are endangered. Take a pass on this one.
You take a boat taxi there and are immediately set upon by the hawkers. The locals don't care that they are exploiting the turtles and even offered to let us "set it free" for $300. It would likely be caught again and re-sold. The tourists are ignorant of the issue and feed into the practice. Shameful.

Venue of Asian Forum For Qionghai Bo'ao

Reviewed By SingaporeViews - Singapore

This is the Venue where, annually, Heads of State, captains of commerce and industry, top brain academics of all fields converge to discuss, debate and decide on matters that has wide reaching implications on the world we live in.
Apart from the picturesque photo-taking site, there isn't much really.
The elevated Fountain spew jets of water upwards. The falling sprays then flows down steps that surrounds the Fountain. The entire Fountain is fringed with plants. On each side of the Fountain flutters flags of participating countries on flagpoles. In pride of place is, of course, one's national flag... whichever country we belong to.
This is the only place on earth where the national flag of Israel is hoisted just next to the national flag of Indonesia (the largest muslim country in the world).
Behind the Fountain is a raised metallic orb featuring the relief of the map of the world.
For our photo-shoot, step-platforms are provided - just in front the scene. Cool.
Although rather simple and man-made, the aura of power pervades the senses. It brings feel-good vibes knowing this is the centre of gravity of governments in the area. It brings a calming sense of satisfaction just being there.

be wary of taking young children as it gets pretty steep in places and the steps can be narrow and uneven. view from the top is nothing special and couldnt see very far anyway due to the ever-present gray haze

东屿島有几十个温泉,有面向大海的、有玖瑰花的、柠檬的、芦荟的,小鱼儿的,柠檬的等等。在面向大海的温泉中看着蔚蓝的大海,好爽啊,玖瑰花温泉泡完后身上散发着淡淡的玖瑰花香,小鱼儿温泉中有几十到上百条小鱼在脚边叮着,帮你大扫除呢。这里是我泡过最好的温泉。

A nice, unrealistic village, done up for tourists, plenty of restaurants but not much else, owes it's fame to a visit by the Presidents wife.

山不怎么高,景点也不大,但是很有特色,游客也很多,60元的门票,刚进景区就能看到很多种类的仙人掌,在往里走则是各种各样的木雕,很有意思的,火山口则是一个下陷的大坑,下去之后相对炎热的天气,会让你一下子感觉特别的凉快。

若不是女娲补天的传说,很难想象这几块石头有什么起眼的,或者特殊的含义。不过,对于略显枯燥的海面而言,有这几块石头,倒显得整个大海,包括玉带滩的沙滩都变得灵动起来了。不巧的是,去的那天天刚停止下雨,有些阴沉,阴沉照出来的画面也略有些沉闷。站在沙滩上,与圣公石遥遥相望,总觉得那石头是一种守望。

Wanquan Lake

Reviewed By Pat D - Dalian, China

Beautiful area, though hard to find with poor access roads.
On arrival at the lakeside there is little parking, not really a problem as there were no people.
There is a small viewing area with some pleasure boats, which had definitely seen better days, but no crew or notices saying if and when the boats operated.
There was no way of getting around the lake that we could find, no paths at all, not even rough paths. There were some good views back along the road woth taking photographs. Overall not worth the effort

Don't waste your time to come to this attraction, completely boring & nothing really to see other than some statutes of some famous female soldiers in Chinese history...
