Weihai, although young but senior enough.

This place has been regarded as the residence of the sun god since the Qin and Han dynasties. It is the end of the sky for Qin Shi Huang’s winter tour, the secret realm where the emperors of all dynasties searched for immortals and asked for medicine, and also a natural monument for the unification of the world.

The buildings in the city are of moderate height, which do not cover the mountains and the sea, and are harmoniously embedded in the green mountains and blue seas. between.

Weihai’s greenery is one of the best in the country. Walking into Weihai, looking around, the city is full of flowers and green mountains, walking on the street, as if you can smell the refreshing smell of sea salt soda in the air.
