The International Tide Watching Festival
Millions of tourists from China and overseas are drawn to the city of Haining in Zhejiang province every year to witness one of China's most unusual and spectacular sights - the amazing surging tides of the Qiantang River. Running from the west to the Hangzhou Bay, the river is known for its tidal bore, caused by the tide rushing into the river from the bay.
The bore creates a marvelous spectacle. Annually, lots of people watch this natural wonder, and in Hangzhou, citizens living aroud the Qiantang River hold various activities to celebrate the International Tide Watching Festival.The Presurfer
