Quanzhou was the starting point of the Silk Road on the sea, which deserves the pride of Quanzhou people. Our ancestors had amazing skills in shipbuilding and navigation. The fact that the bottom cabins were closed independently made us admire them. The ancient coins and pottery and other cultural relics salvaged along with the boat also left a deep impression on Bu.

It is located on the east side of Kaiyuan Temple in Quanzhou City, Fujian Province. It was founded on July 15, 1959. The Song boat unearthed in 1974 in Houzhu Port is 24.2 meters long and 9.15 meters wide. It is divided into 13 watertight silos, which is one of the most important discoveries in the history of Natural Science in China.

This is a very worthwhile exhibition hall for ancient boats, mainly excavated around Quanzhou. An ancient boat was built. There are also excavated remains of Nanhai No. 1 in Guangzhou. This ship is still quite large, the center of the whole exhibition hall is placed this ship, surrounded by two floors on both sides are about the development of shipping history in Quanzhou City, it is indeed the starting point of the Silk Road. This place can absorb a lot of historical knowledge, as well as some of the advantages of shipping manufacturing. And it's free of charge. It's cost-effective.
It covers a small area, divided into two layers, recommended. One is the display of the lower half of the ship, the second is the upper half, so the analogy is a bit far-fetched. Photography is a good choice, while understanding the development of ship culture in southern Fujian. During the tour, there are broadcasting cycles. The bottom of Chinese boats is separated and the foreign boats are hollow. So the foreign man-made boats do not move their brains. Ha-ha. That huge picture is very beautiful. Besides visiting it, there are three special fragrance machines for experiencing it. Thank you very much.
