The campsite is adjacent to a spacious avenue, and the "small train" in the scenic area carrying tourists is slowly moving. The renovated "car style café" in the carriage sends out fragrant smell. Ms. Xu, a nearby villager, informed us that this is the only perennial clear water area in the coastal waters of the East China Sea. The landscape there is like a "wallpaper".
