* <see name="Changdao County/the Long Island" alt="" address="" directions="" phone="" url="" hours="" price="" lat="" long="" email="" fax="">Both Changdao National Forest Park and Changdao National Nature Reserve are on the islands, which are on a cross-Bohai Sea flyway.  The islands are often referred to as the Temple Islands (Chinese: Miaodao Qundao) because of the large number of temples that were built there. Xianying Palace is a temple that was built during the Northern Song Dynasty, starting in 1122. It was originally a Taoist temple to the sea goddess Matsu, but became Buddhist later. At the present time the local government has restored the temple to its Ming Dynasty appearance, although many additions had been made during the Qing.  The Changdao Islands are now open to non-Chinese nationals. Avoid during Chinese holidays, or make sure you get to the ferry at 6am, as it will become impossibly crowded later.</see>
