Dongshan, a treasure trove of sea culture

Located in Zhangzhou city, Dongshan is the sixth largest island county in China. Its azure skies, blue water, majestic bays, white sands, lush forests and scattered islands form a picturesque landscape.

Famous tourist destinations in Dongshan include the iconic Wind-moving Stone, the Nanmen Bay and the Guandi Temple which worships Guan Yu, an ancient general from the late Eastern Han Dynasty (25-220) known for his courage and faith. The worship of Guan Yu is still prevalent throughout China today.

Recalling her visit to Dongshan, Tunisian journalist Derouiche Asma said: "I like it so much. It reminds me of my hometown, with blue beaches, bird songs and vast blue skies. It took me back to the times with my family on vacation."

"The island is shaped like a butterfly," she added.
