In this scenic area there is a man-made lake. It is called "Moon Sea" because of the moon-shaped appearance. The terrain of Haita looks like a huge ship. In order to prevent the ship from drifting away, people built a white tower with hexagonal eaves to tie the huge ship to. The Moon Sea and the white tower echo each other.
