Bijia Mountain is situated on the coast of the Bohai Sea adjacent to Jinzhou Port. Bijiashan Island and Sky Bridge are the key scenic spots in the mountain resort. The Sky Bridge is exactly a 1,620-meter-long (1772-yard-long) sand and pebble road between the island and the seashore, which dodges in and out of the water as the tide changes. The Sanqing Pavilion is a 'must go' spot in the scenic area. It is a stone, wooden-like building without a single nail standing at the top of the mountain, from which visitors can have a bird's-eye view of the beautiful, vast sea. In addition, there are forty-eight Buddhas sacrificed in the pavilion.
