After some two hours of metro + commuter train ride, you knew you were there when you saw the ocean.

The shopping streeting is actually renovated, even a bit touristy.

They are still making newer shops.

Looked like a bunch of restaurant tables but they actually belonged to a pottery shop.

Fresh seafood market right next to the main road. Many Shanghaiese would drop by during the weekend, get some countryside tranquility and fresh seafood from the market.

The other side of the street dotted with seafood restaurants here and there.

Why fish? They just wash up with the tide.

Grandpa picking up some water for a little fish he just taught for his little grandson.

Petroleum refinery not far from here, part of the reason why most of fishing villages disappeared.  This village stayed because it made some money from the tourism.
