Yandunjiao, a picturesque fishing village nearby mountains and sea in Rongcheng, East China's Shandong province, is a perfect destination to appreciate the beautiful and graceful swans during winter.
Every November, thousands of swans migrate to Yandunjiao from Siberia, the Inner Mongolia autonomous region and the Chinese northeastern regions to live through the winter and then fly back north the following March.
Every winter the swans attract hordes of visitors, amateur shutterbugs and professional photographers from home and abroad to the remote village, bringing boundless vitality and vigor to the local tourism industry.
