Pingtan received a total of 103,280 tourists, with an average of 34,400 tourists per day and tourism revenues of approximately 65.53 million yuan during the just-concluded Mid-Autumn Festival holiday, according to the Tourism, Culture, and Sports Bureau of Pingtan, an island off E China’s Fujian province and a rising international tourism island.
Pingtan is popular with self-driving tourists. On September 10, the reporters from Pingtan CMC visited the Tannan Bay scenic area and saw that the parking lot was orderly packed with vehicles from across the country, and tourists were having a great time on the sandy beach. Wooden chalets, canopies, and swings were among some newly added popular tourist amenities.
At 5 am on September 11, Longwangtou Bathing Beach was streaming with tourists waiting to catch a beautiful island sunrise. "We drove all the way here from downtown Fuzhou early this morning. When we cast eyes on the rising sun over the horizon, everything became worthwhile," said tourist Wu Weirong.
Pingtan also hosted an array of themed activities to spice up the festivity. Reveling in the brilliant sunset by cruise ship “Haitan No.1,” immersed in a magic show at Pingtan International Performing Arts Center, and having fun experiencing marine sports like kitesurfing.
"Usually, I would stick around the beach. This is my first time on a sea cruise. It was an amazing experience aboard "Haitan No.1," Su Jie, a tourist from northwest China's Gansu province, snapped the beautiful moment with his camera.
