Zhanjiang, located on the Leizhou Peninsula in southwestern Guangdong province, thrives by the sea and prospers from it.

The South China Sea brings this coastal city not only an endless supply of fish, but also the stunning ‘snowfields’. During high tide, pure seawater flows through the long, hot sandy beaches into the Leizhou Peninsula, creating a natural salt field.

Generations of hardworking people have made a living here by sun-drying sea salt, a tradition that continues to this day.

Come see fields like mirrors and salt as white as snow!
