Longchuan Bay, Part II


Transporting to another area along the Bay, where the young people used to come here and get their “re-education” (high-school-age youth sent to the countryside to work along with the local farmers) during the cultural revolution.


We made pit stop at a 3-D animation trail.

Coming back to Shicheng, we found the Shicheng (Lion City) Tourist Information/museum. A model of the old town, now flooded underwater (Thousand Island Lake is a man-made lake from a dam), showed the old city walls and buildings.
