Nantong has one of China’s four biggest fishing grounds, Lvsi. Tourists visiting the golden beach in Qidong at the southern tip of Jiangsu province can experience a special kind of activity called “stamping on clams”, also dubbed “sea disco”, which is done barefooted. Tourists can also enjoy watching sunrises over the sea or take a boat to the spectacular converging of the waters of the Yangtze River, the Huanghai Sea and the East China Sea.
