"Welcome to the Third Island of China" Chongming Dao by gaolei

Chongming Dao Travel Guide: 2 reviews and 1 photos

This island in the Yangtse River near Shanghai is Chong Ming Dao (Island). When you arrive by ferry, there is a sign that says welcome to the third Island of China. When I asked Chinese friend to explain he said it is the third largest island of China. There is Hainan, Taiwan and Chongming. I disputed Taiwan as a Chinese island, but he was quite resolute in his belief that Taiwan belonged to China.

The island is only 15 miles from Shanghai, but they have a local dialect that the Shanghainese cannot understand.

    I couldn't squeeze Chongming Dao into my travel plan when I was there in Dec 08. So sad! Wish you could add some photos of it.
