Zhang Jiahao, the secretary of Zhuangwei Township Office, mentioned that “the sightseeing circle in the northeast corner actually covers a variety of cultures, and the most famous one in Zhuangwei is the “Guishan Chaori” landscape, which can be seen from Zhuangwei. The shape of Guishan Island is the most complete. You can see the trajectory of the sunrise with the seasons.
