A Brief Introduction of Yantai city


In 2004, China Central Television (CCTV) recognized Yantai as the most 'Charming City of China.' The city is located in the northeast of the Shangdong Province. It is bordered by both the Yellow Sea and the Bohai Sea, and lies across from South Korea and Japan. The city includes four districts - Zhifu, Fushan, Mouping and Laishan, and Changdao County, and administers seven county-level cities - Penglai, Laiyang, Haiyang and Longkou, Laizhou, Zhaoyuan and Qixia. Of these, Zhifu is the central district. Although Yantai is not a metropolis like Beijing and Shanghai, it has its own unique charm.


Evidence suggests Yantai existed as a city as long as 10,000 years ago. It was visited three times by the first emperor of the Qin Dynasty, Qinshihuang (259BC-210BC). During the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) a fire platform, called Langyantai Platform, was constructed on the northernmost city hill, as a means of defense against pirates. General Qi Jiguang of the Ming Dynasty fought against pirates using this platform, and developed Penglai Water City, a navy base which remains well-preserved to this day.

Local food here is well-known all around China. Local cooks take advantage of area's abundant sea food, vegetables and fruits, creatively crafting tasty dishes. Yantai is also the cradle of wine production in China, housing the largest wine production base in Asia. With its high quality and more than 100-years of history, Zhangyu Red Wine produced here is a widely known brand in China and abroad. In 1987, the International Grape and Wine Bureau dubbed the city the 'International Grape and Wine City.'
