Haitan Ancient Town is a large cultural tourism complex that houses buildings modeled on ancient architectural styles, the first tourist attraction of its kind in China. It exhibits rich Fujian culture. Tourists can be immersed in the ancient Chinese architecture and courtyards of Ming and Qing dynasties, unwinding from the rich culture.

Located in the Aoqian Taiwan-themed Town of Pingtan, Cross-Straits (Pingtan) Folk Art Museum houses an extensive collection of the province's intangible cultural heritage, Pingtan's Shell Carving.

As the first national privately-owned coastal defense museum, China Haitan Museum of Coastal Defense is situated at Haitan Ancient Town.
