Xiapu is the most picturesque coast in China with the green sea, pebble beaches, and charming fishing boats. Against the background of numerous islands, here you can make beautiful multidimensional photos. In Spring in Xiapu begins the season of collecting seaweed. This is the best time for a photo tour.

We are planning to visit several fishing villages and take photos of scenes from the life of fishermen. Here, as hundreds of years ago, Chinese girls mend nets, sitting on the threshold of an ancient temple in the rays of the setting sun, and peasants take their oxen to plow small plots.

Dawn, Yangjiaxi village and fishing nets.

Early in the morning, we are going to the high shore overlooking the ocean and small islands, where we can make beautiful landscape pictures.

Return to the hotel for rest.

In the evening we will take photos of landscapes with intricate S-shaped figures formed of bamboo poles with nets for catching crabs. In the season of collecting seaweed, we can make lots of interesting pictures here.

We'll be here at high tide. Good pictures can only be taken at this time.
Day 3 (June 1)

Dawn, Bailu village and Mudflats.

At dawn, we are taking photos at the Mantou Hill. At high tide, when the water floods bamboo poles with seaweed, the landscape changes every minute.

Later we will take photos of local farmers from the Bailu village at work, who harvest and dry seaweed.

In the afternoon we will take photos of floating fishing nets in shallow water. Fishermen in boats on the background of shrimp catching nets will be a great topic for a photography session.

Circle nets and portraits of fishermen.

Before dawn, we are going to the XIAQINGSHAN bridge. We will be taking pictures of scenes from the lives of local fishermen who take out the nets set in the evening.

In the afternoon we will take portraits of peasants in their traditional dwellings.
