Find the Charisma of China's Wetland in Red Beach
PANJIN, China, Sept. 26, 2017 /Xinhua-AsiaNet/ --

Red Beach, the world's top marshland by area, has entered its best season. The 
seepweed growing along its shoreline has taken on a crimson red hue while 
flocks of birds hover above the water, chirping between the reeds. This 
landscape in Panjin City of Liaoning Province is one of the earliest exemplary 
destinations in China for wetland tourism and boasts a distinctive beauty that 
can be found nowhere else across the world.

The red color of the marshland is very rare as the seepweed common to coastal 
areas is green. A recreational wooden path, possibly the most fabulous one of 
its kind in China, has been built for tourists to mingle with waterfowls, enjoy 
the fantastic wetland views and experience rich and profound local culture.

In this land of fish and rice, an exclusive culinary culture has been developed 
over the years. A spectacular winter fishing event is held every year in nearby 
Wolong Lake. For local residents, the event is more of a pray to the nature and 
an expression of their attachment to the river water.

The wetland provides a superior environment for rice to grow. With mitten crabs 
dwelling in the paddy fields, the single-season rice there has a growing period 
of 186 days. This rice was designated as the official rice of the 2008 Beijing 
Olympics Games.

Cattail bamboo shoots or pusun in Chinese, is a plant native to the lower 
reaches of the Liaohe River. Pusun is very sensitive to its environment, it can 
only grow wild and has a very low yield. The nutrient-rich food is enjoyed by 
many people.  

Red Beach sees the perfect blend of natural scenery and industrial development. 
Panjin is a famous oil city. In the vicinity of the scenic spot, there are rows 
of derricks and extraction equipment. Thanks to strict clean production 
practice, no oil stain can be found on the production platforms.  

It is a fantastic getaway where vacationers can do more than sightseeing. They 
can experience ecological agriculture, going to paddy fields to see cute crop 
pictures and even having their own customized croplands. Specializing in the 
use of bio-energy, the resort offers a splendid environment-friendly rural 
scenery.
