Caishi Island and Swan Lake Tours

A "T" shaped sea gulf, the Swan Lake originally named Rongcheng Cove is located one kilometer east of Chengshanwei and covers a dozen square kilometers. It is not too cold in winter with the lowest temperature at 1(C below zero. To the east of the lake is flat sandy beach with sea weed, a good place for swans to winter. From November to March, swans come from northern areas to winter here for dozens of years. The number has increased year by year, reaching 10,000 at the most.

At 4 pm the sun set and the day was fine. We went to the eastern side of the lake. A landscape of lakes and mountains and the beautiful sunset glow form a delightful contrast. Swans, wild ducks and other birds cry and play with each other on the others fly high in the sky. What a beautiful and harmonious picture!

After visiting Swan Lake, you should go to Chengshantou because of its special geographical position and natural landscape. It is more than ten kilometers from Swan Lake. Weihai-Rongcheng mini-bus goes all the time.

Chengshantou is on the eastern tip of the Jiaodong Peninsula and also is the easternmost point of China's coastline. It is surrounded on three sides by sea are reefs and the current rushes and circles around. Even if it there is no wind the sea waves can be dangerous. A local proverb says that nine out of ten sailors worry about passing Chengshantou,
Terrifying waves crashing upon the bank.

According to historical records, in 219 B.C. and 210 B.C. Qinshihuang visited Chengshan twice. To its south there are four huge strangely shaped rocks, that are splashed by the ebb and flow of the tide. People called it Qinrenqiao. It was built to honor Qinshihuang's search for the God of the Sea. After the 14th century, Chengshantou became a strategic area and the Yellow-Sea Battle during the Sino-Japanese War of 1894-1895 took place in nearby waters.

Chengshantou, now a famous national scenic are, is also called the "end of the world." It is known as China's Cape of Good Hope, with its green hills,blue sea, precipitous cliffs and momentous waves.
