Nothing special about this place besides some photos with the ocean in the background. You can go on your way to nearby attractions. It's an old peer built in Qing some hundred years ago but experienced many reconstructions over the years.

If you've been to Brighton or Blackpool you've definitely seen a better pier. The views around the pier are decent. If you want to chill out and maybe read a book, I'd say this was a really really good location. I can't remember the time now, but when I was there, there were some loud noises coming from the battleships.... More

Very crowded and lots of people trying to take sneaky pictures of my fiancé! It seems to be the thing to do though, walk to the end of the pier and back.

I insisted on going even though my driver laughed when I said I wanted to come here (because it's in all the tour guides). There's absolutley nothing wrong with it, a nice walk along the pier to the pagoda, taking in the views of European style rooftops.

As it was a Sunday when we took a walk on the pier to get to the pagoda at the end, we had to jostle with the huge crowd already there at 10am. Along the way, people were stopping here and there to get a snapshot of the pagoda. People were also stopping to have a look or buy the... More

An interesting walk to a pagoda on the end of this landmark pier. A nice stroll just to say you have been there. The day we went was extremely hot and severely overcrowded, a walk became an uncomfortable shuffle. As a foreigner you WILL be stared at, get used to it. My wife and I had mixed views. I felt...

This seems to be the place where Chinese tourists are flocking to. We visited during a very misty morning and it was ultimately crowded and busy since the tourist groups are on a "schedule" and need to enter, take dozens of picture and exit rapidly. The guides needed to be very noisy to flock their heard in and out. Better... More

I read about this popular site and had the impression it is a must see. This pier has an interesting history and designed in the shape of an anchor from an aerial view. As I was staying in the area, I had a view of this scene in the early morning mist and in the evening with the lights. It... More
