HANGZHOU, China, Sept. 30, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- On the morning of September 28th, Beijing time, the Hangzhou Asian Games Organizing Committee extended invitations to both domestic and international media teams. Their destination was the Yanguan Tidal Viewing Area, nestled in the heart of Jiaxing City, Zhejiang Province. There, they would bear witness to the renowned 'Qiantang River Tidal Bore,' often hailed as the 'Premier Tidal Bore Worldwide.' As the Mid-Autumn Festival drew near, journalists from across the globe conveyed their best wishes to Chinese people.


The Qiantang River tidal bore stands among the planet's three foremost tidal bores, sharing this distinction with the Amazon Tidal Bore in South America and the Ganges Tidal Bore in India. The prime vantage point for observing the Qiantang River tidal bore resides in Yanguan, Haining City, with the ideal viewing window coinciding with the annual Mid-Autumn Festival.
