Dongshuang Island: Half precipice, half meadow



If you are an avid lover of the game "The Legend of Zelda," you can't miss this enchanting island nestled in the eastern waters of Xiapu County, southeast China's Fujian Province. You'll be surprised to find that scenes in the game come into reality on Dongshuang Island.

As one of the 17 islands of the Sishuang Archipelago, Dongshuang Island is endowed with a unique landscape of "half precipice, half meadow." The native goats are the island's sole inhabitants. They swiftly walk among the towering cliffs to look for fresh grass to eat. Sometimes, they overlook the sea on the mountaintop as if they are the king of the island.
