Scenery of Pingtan Island in Fujian

Floating on the East China Sea, Pingtan Island enjoys a growing reputation as a rustic getaway. It is the largest island in Fujian Province and the closest place from the Chinese mainland to Taiwan.

Embraced by the sea, Pingtan sees roaring waves and strong sea winds year round. Villagers use the granite boulders found throughout the island t o build their houses and roads. Their stone houses are sturdy enough to withstand violent storms and high waters while, but they are also comfortable in all seasons. This unique architectural style has become part of the cultural landscape of Pingtan.
