Can you imagine collecting over 1 million seashells and decorating an entire building with them? Furnished with a huge variety of shell species, shades, sizes, and shapes, the seashell house is an incredible sight on Lingshan Island in #Qingdao!

The Qi Xing Tai (Seven Star Tower) @ #Jinan
Watching the Big Dipper hanging deep in the sky on top of Jinan City’s Seven Star Tower is a real treat especially on a clear, pleasant fall night. Gazing at stars into the infinite magically lures our eyes to the shining universe.

Yellow River Ecological Zone @ #Dongying
Dongying is the last stop before the Yellow River enters the sea. The dichotomy of sea colors at the entrance is sharp. The clear fall weather certainly adds romantic charm to the delta. Here you can see the galloping Yellow River charging into the sea, yet drawing a clear line between yellow and blue waters.

Yan Dun Jiao, #Weihai
From this mid-autumn festival day to the time deep into the winter, large flocks of wild swans will gather at Yan Dun Jiao from far away Siberia. Their arrival wakes up the deadly silent wetland and rejuvenates Dongying’s fall coastal life.

Holiday feasts in Shandong vary by the region, but a family reunion dinner is one norm that is seen everywhere. While Jinan’s meals are popular with dumplings, Jiaodong’s (East Shandong) custom is to eat steamed buns with and/or without meat inside. Then you have the Qingdao locals who love to make “Mai Jian”, a steamed pancake wrapped in stalks and bits of meat with dipping sauce. In Linyi, people roast a whole lamb at large gatherings; and in Taian, the Mid-Autumn Festival is a time for visiting the in-laws bearing good gifts.

Wonder why the second most respected festival is often marvel at and Chinese people take such pride in?

The Mid-Autumn Festival: the moon is often symbolized playing the important role in the history of this festival.

Legend has it that there is a hero by the name of Hou Yi who had bumped into Goddess Wangmu and obtained medicine of longevity. He asked his beloved wife, Chang’e to keep it but it was robbed by the thief, Pengmeng. At this dangerous moment, Chang’e swallowed the medicine but unexpectedly and helplessly flew to the moon, the nearest planet to the earth to live her life as an angel. From now on, Hou Yi could not do anything other than climbing high to gaze into the distant moon for his lovely wife Chang’e on August 15, an annual full moon day. He prepared cakes in the shape of moon to share his love with Chang’e. From then on, on August 15 (according to the Chinese Lunar Calendar), Chinese people will climb to the highest hill to watch the distant full moon. They will also eat moon cakes to share with families together or virtually. We call the Mid-Autumn Festival the date of family reunion. In Chinese, the word, “reunion” and the shape of the mooncake share the Chinese character, “Yuan”, meaning, the circle.

People usually celebrate the day by climbing to the highest point (“in hopes of reaching the moon”; metaphorically), taking a night lake cruise to enjoy the moon shining down, recite poems, or eat mooncakes with family.
