Welcome to the online exhibition of Lianyungang, a city nestled in China’s central coastal area at the northeast end of Jiangsu Province. Lianyungang boasts a rich cultural heritage and abundant tourism resources, making it a captivating destination for travelers worldwide.

Lianyungang has the 10,000-year-old Jiangjun Cliff Petroglyphs, oldest of its kind in China, known as the “Oriental Book of Heaven”. It also has the prehistoric site of Tenghualuo with a history of 4,600 years, and cliff carvings on Kongwang Mountain which were nearly 300 years earlier than the Mogao Grottoes in Dunhuang. Confucius climbed the mountain and watched the sea from here; Emperor Qin Shi Huang came here on his east tour and erected the stone “East Gate of Qin”; and Xu Fu sailed to Japan and Korea from here. Wu Cheng En, inspired by the scenic beauty of mountains and seas and by myths and legends, wrote Journey to the West; Li Ruzhen created The Marriage of Flowers in the Mirror when he lived in Banpu.

Lianyungang isn’t just steeped in history, it also offers breathtaking natural beauty. Explore Mount Huaguo, the fabled birthplace of Monkey King, and the pristine Liandao Island ranked among China’s top 10 beautiful islands. Experience the tranquil Yuntai Sea Mountain, rejuvenate at Donghai Hot Spring Town, and visit the world’s largest crystal market.
