Photographer's Note

The people on Gexian Island (Gexian Dao/格仙岛) live from the sea and tourism.

While the men go out fishing, the women are repairing the fishing nets. When the weather is too bad for fishing, the men repair their boats.

Some families have accommodation for tourists. The accommodation is very basic. Don't expect a 5 star hotel. But for the ones who like to eat fresch seafood it's a must.

I have stayed their in the summer of 2009, with a very friendly family. The man took me out for fishing. When I left the island he brought me to the ferry with his boat. The price was 120RMB/day (bed + 3 meals daily).
