About Pingtan: Pingtan is located in the southern tip of Fuzhou City, Fujian Province, just across the straight from Taiwan. On the Mainland, it is the closest place to Taiwan. Pingtan has a long history but development started fairly late, therefore there are still quite a number of original buildings on the island; the island attracts many visitors every summer. Pingtan is known as the “Island of Thousand Reefs." The county has 126 islands with names and 702 reefs. The wide sea area is connected to the outer ocean, and many islands and reefs are dotted in between; this makes the seas in Pingtan very beautiful.
