Hangzhou Bay




Hangzhou Bay, or the Bay of Hangzhou (simplified Chinese: 杭州湾; traditional Chinese: 杭州灣; pinyin: Hángzhōu Wān; Hangzhou Wu: Han-tsei uae), is an inlet of the East China Sea bordered by the province of Zhejiang and the municipality of Shanghai. The Qiantang River flows into this bay.

It lies south of Shanghai and ends at the city of Hangzhou. Hangzhou Bay contains many small islands that are collectively called the "Zhoushan Islands."

The bay is known for hosting the world's largest tidal bore, up to 9 meters (30 ft) high, and traveling up to 40 km (25 mi) per hour.

The bay is spanned by the Hangzhou Bay Bridge, which was linked up on June 14, 2007 and opened on 1 May, 2008. The then second-longest bridge in the world, it cuts the trip between eastern Zhejiang and Shanghai from 400 to 80 kilometers (250 to 50 miles).

At less than 15 meters in depth, the entire bay area is relatively shallow.
