Weizhou Island [Beijing Review]

With a sub-tropical maritime monsoon climate, the average temperature in Beihai remains at 22.6 degrees Celsius, never rising more than 33 degrees Celsius, which makes the city boast a pleasant climate both in winter and summer.

Beihai is known as the Biggest Oxygen Bar of all Chinese cities, given its clean air. Since green trees, fragrant flowers and sweet fruits are available year-round, Beihai is considered a top holiday destination and is widely regarded as one of the most livable cities in China.

Surrounded by the sea in three directions, the city is blessed with picturesque seaside scenery, which is shown off by its fabulous seawater, beach and sunshine. With diversified tourist resources, there are many enchanting and fascinating places to visit, namely Beihai Silver Beach, Weizhou Island and Mangrove Forest, among others.

Moreover, Beihai owns the only international cruiser line between China and ASEAN countries, departing from Beihai to Ha Long, Viet Nam.

According to the 2011-15 ASEAN Tourism Strategic Plan, Beihai will develop its culture industry and strengthen cooperation with neighboring areas and countries.

With a range of infrastructure, Beihai is the only city in west China that has deep-water ports, an airport, railways and an expressway. It also has a sophisticated network of roads, water supplies, electricity, communications and areas zoned off for environmental protection.

Beihai is a city possessing abundant natural resources. It is rich in fresh water, land and marine and aquatic products.

The sea area here is an important fishing base in China, and the Tieshan Port is also an ideal place along the coast in west China for developing large-scale coastal industries.

The city's offshore area teems with quality pearls, also known as the South Pearl.
