Baishitan Square is an emblematic landscape of Tide Bore Watching Park in Haining. It used to be the place for Emperor Qianlong to watch the tides. Baishitan Square was rebuilt in the year 2002. After the renovation, Baishitan Square integrates large-scale festive events, touring and sightseeing, artistic performances, entertainment and leisure. Both the annual International Qiantang River Tidal Bore Watching Festival and the grand Haining Tide Music Festival are held there, drawing an increasing number of tourists every year.
The whole Baishitan Square is made of white marbles and there are flower beds and a pool. The flowers are breathing out fragrance and the water of the pool is so clear that the pebbles at the bottom of the pool are plainly visible. In such a beautiful environment, numerous tourists flock there to watch the wonder of the world, the spectacular Qiantang Tide and enjoy the musical feast.
