By Ding Xin / hicn.cn / Updated: 17:15,17-May-2021

The fishing port of Tanmen in the Qionghai area of Hainan is a picturesque destination with its blue sea and clean silver beach. The largest fishing port in Hainan, it has a 1,000-year-old history and the China (Hainan) Museum of the South China Sea in the neighborhood chronicles a vast range of stories about the South China Sea. An element of modernity in the ancient fishing port is the long Tanmen Bridge, which runs from the north to the south like a long-tailed sea dragon, and links the area to the town of Boao. The bridge is a key element in the economic and social development of the area. (Photo: Lin Xiaoyi)
