Yangshan Deep Water Port – Part II

I am attending a meeting at Yangshan Island. Here are some photos of the Donghai Bridge, and the Yangshan Deep Water Port. This is a meeting with government. I just found out that Yangshan is a great place to host a meeting – it takes about 2.5 hours to get there, including 0.5-1 hour to reach the A2, and 30 minutes on the A2 to Donghai Bridge, and 30 minutes on the bridge (at 80 km/hour), and 30 minutes on the boat from Xiao Yangshan to Da Yangshan. Here are some photos I took on the way there.

Where is Yangshan Port?

Google earth just specially updated the Yangshan Port area. On the satellite image below, you can see part of the bridge, and the part on the mainland is not updated – you should see a huge lake there in the current sea area.

It seems the recent updated Google Image has much higher resolution than before. Look at this one:

The bus stops at the Emergency Area, so we can take some photos of the port.

The water of the East China Sea is highly polluted, and it is all yellow.

This is the view from the harbor of Da Yanshan Island, looking at the Xiao Yangshan (where the port is located). The fast ferry only takes 15 minutes to get to the other side.

This is the temple fishers go to before they sail into the sea.
