Yantai Mountain Scenic Spot
Yantai in the eastern part of Shandong Peninsula is a beautiful coastal city. Although the city is not as big as Qingdao, its opening is earlier than Qingdao. In the Yantaishan Park on the seashore of the city center, there are still many sites of consulates in the country, witnessing all this. Yantai Mountain is a hill with an elevation of only 42.5 meters, just by the sea. In the 31st year of Ming Hongwu (1398), in order to prevent flooding, a wolf-burning pier was built on this mountain, also known as a beacon tower. So the people who built the beacon tower were called "Yantai Mountain", Yantai. The city is named after Yantai Mountain. 1861, according to the "Tianjin Treaty", Yantai was turned into a trading port, becoming one of the earliest cities in northern China and the earliest trading port in Shandong Province. 17 countries including the United Kingdom, the United States, France, Germany, and Japan have established consulates, foreign banks and other offices in and around Yantai Mountain. These small buildings are scattered in the green trees, which is the former site of the consulate. . Yantai Mountain Scenic Area is the largest modern consulate complex in Asia. The buildings are of different architectural styles, with rich atmosphere and well-preserved, which is a treasure house of modern architecture. Some consulates have been converted into museums to showcase the city's modern development. A white lighthouse on the top of the is particularly eye-catching. In July 1905, the British built a lighthouse on the site of the Beacon Tower, which has been in use for more than 80 years.
Dongpaotai Haibin Sceneic Area
From Yantai downtown along the coastline to the Moon Bay, today is a romantic seaside park, and in the Qing Dynasty more than a hundred years ago, it is a strategic location, the main battlefield of Haiphong. There is a fort on the hill called the East Fort to distinguish another Western Fort. The East Fort is a rare and well-preserved coastal defense facility in northern China. More than a hundred years ago, Beiyang Minister Li Hongzhang discovered that it was a rare sea defense site, so he asked Guangxu to build a fort here, and asked German technicians to supervise and install the most technologically advanced Krupp cannon. The hill where the cannon was installed is called Lushan. The fort was built in the late Qing Dynasty in 1894. It has a history of 123 years. At that time, it cost 1 million yuan. It is one of the most complete sea defense facilities in China. Li Hongzhang said that "the general trend of the Bohai Sea, the capital of Beijing as the gateway, with Lushun and Yantai as the key", and said that the Shandong coastal repairing platform, especially Yantai is the most important. The Krupp cannon in Germany was the most advanced rear cannon at that time. The appearance was very powerful. The gun body can be rotated 360 degrees. The barrel can be tilted 30 degrees and the range is 20 miles. The outside of the city wall is the vast sea. The sea here is crystal clear and has a faint blue color. There is a seal bay next to it, and there are more than 100 sea animals such as breeding seals and sea lions.
