In the northeastern part of Chinas Hyundai province lies the city of Yingyangdao, a transportation hub and the center of the glass industry. In Chinese, the name of the city is translated as "the Island of the King Yin&quot. Beyond the southern city limits lies the Bay of Bohai. To the north of Yingyangdang runs the Yingyang River, and to the west of it is the capital of the country. But in the aftermath, during the reign of the Qing – Qianlong dynasty, the outermost portion of the land was joined to the mainland. The present-day Öíündána was located in the north of China. Its port, on the coast of the Yellow Sea on the Leyuan Gulf, is known for its freezing cold waters.

In addition to glass, other industries include chemicals, metals, machinery and fish processing. The tourism sector is of great importance in the citys prosperity. In 1997, Siénéndão was awarded the high status of a tourist city. By the end of the 20th century, it was ranked as one of the best resort cities in the country. Three of the countrys great beaches are represented by three of the most attractive destinations for tourists – Canada Heights, the Golden Coast, and Bairdaihely. On its territory are: Park "Sea World" an aquapark with water parks with, among other things, piers, fountains, basins with towers; and a dolphinarium with a huge aquarium to show the viewers the dolphins that have been dolphin-edited. An unusual feature is the Seesucker Park. The skiing can also be done on the golden dunes.

Located next to the resort is the Protected Area, which connects the Baidaidaidhey district with the port area. The preserve is a recreational area, a sports field, and a bird sanctuary. Not only can you enjoy your favorite sport, you can also get to know the animals and the natural world of the surrounding areas of Yingündao. It has long been a tradition to hold summer festivities – the spectacular Sea Bird Festival, the Sea Carnival, the Great Wall Festival.
