Beidaihe is a part of Qinhuangdao. Qinhuangdao literally means Qin Emperor's Island in Chinese language. It got its name after the first emperor of the Qin Dynasty (221-206 BC). He once came here looking for pills of longevity. The city was opened as a seaport in 1898. Today it has developed greatly, turning a small fishing village into one of the largest ports in northern China.
Beidaihe Scenic Spot
Beidaihe is a seaside resort on the Bohai Gulf, about 300km away east of Beijing. It was formerly supported by European diplomats, missionaries and businessmen in the early 19th century. After 1949, the village turned into a pleasure resort for high ranking officials and officers of China. Now it has become a popular summer resort for ordinary people coming both from home and abroad. Heidaihe has good beaches. Of the three nice beaches, Middle Beach is the most convenient and popular. At the beach's western ending is Pigeon Nest Park, a twenty-metre-high rocky named after the seagulls fond of standing here. It's a popular site for watching the sunrise.
Shanhaiguan Pass is actually a town at the northern part of the Bohai Gulf,between the mountains and the sea, formerly constructed as a fortress in the Ming dynasty. It was used as defence works at eastern end of the Great Wall. The town was first constructed to defend the most eastern tip of the Great Wall which still winds through the eastern city walls, before going south to the sea. The Eastern Gate (Zhengyuan lou) is a double storey building with double roofed tower constructed in the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644 AD) draws lots of visitors.
Laolongtou (Old Dragon's Head)
The Old Dragon Head (Laolongtou) is located 5 kilometers south of the town of Shanhaiguan. It is located in the most eastern tip of the Great Wall, where it meets the sea. its name is derived from a legendary stone-carved dragon head that used to confront the sea. Unluckily, the former wall has long been destroyed and washed away. The present wall of The Old Dragon Head today is a replica built in1980s.
