beach, invigorating the new city of Yintan, according to the People's 
Government of Rushan.
 
On the evening of October 2, the opening ceremony was held in the plaza of the 
Rushan Yintan Tourist Resort. During the event, several activities were held 
under the Wind from the Sea tourist banner, creating new hot spots for 
holidaying in Yintan, such as the Globe of Death, the Super Oyster Feast, and 
Beach Motorcycling. For each of three consecutive days, 500 kilograms of 
steaming oysters were on offer, ensuring that tourists would remember the 
delicacy of Rushan oysters, and also encouraging many more tourists to visit
