I arrived at Xuwen County, Leizhou Peninsula in the evening of January 25. After finished settling down, I strolled into a dark snack street, looking for food one by one, only to find almost neon signs are related to geese, so it seemed I had come to the “goose city”.

Pass through a crowded tree-lined trail in the city
Take a look at street
The buses sent to the county outside, most people dressed in new clothes,
Along the way to Jiaoweijiao, I met many villagers going home from the market, with chickens, fish and vegetables on the motorcycle.
Arrived at the empty Jiaoweijiao, I was standing on the southernmost tip of mainland China.
There are three plates on the Jiaoweijiao.
According to the inscription described by the tower in the picture, it is the place to command the liberation of Hainan Island.
Take a short walk along the beach
The dividing line pointed at the Shizilang. The left is the Qiongzhou Strait, there was vast and heavy fog in the front, the right is the vast northern Bay.
I stayed about 20 minutes at the beach, few visitors, and finally left.
