In addition, local international landmarks such as Bohai Eye Ferris Wheel and Ark Hotel were in Mr. Mo Yan’s two-day visiting schedule. Mr. Mo Yan looked from the railing at the Happy Sea International Yacht Club, watching the cruise ships sailing, and sincerely praised, "After seeing a lot of landscapes along the way, I felt that it was a completely new look, a new vision and a new pattern. The desolate beach in the past has become a hot land full of vigor and vitality, and it is beyond imagination to erect such an international style building. It can be foreseen that this land will have a very beautiful future and a very broad developed prospect."
