Updated : 2018-12-15 (ezhejiang.gov.cn)

As a beautiful island city in East China's Zhejiang province, Zhoushan boasts clear water, sandy beaches, delicious seafood, Buddhist culture and clean air, and has ranked among the top three of 74 major cities around China for its good air quality for many years.

It has improved the local infrastructure, public services and city environment in recent years, with parks and gardens seen ubiquitously, schools and hospitals greatly renovated, and civil activities enriched, making itself a better place to live in.

Putuo district in Zhoushan was selected as one of the ten happiest county-level cities in China in 2018 by Oriental Outlook magazine's annual ranking.

Founded in 1958, Zhejiang Ocean University (ZJOU) is situated in the urban area of Zhoushan Archipelago New Area which is the first State-level new area with the marine economy as a focal point. For about sixty years, following the principle of "Embracing Diversity and Pursuing Excellence", ZJOU has become a leading provincial institution of higher learning specializing in ocean science studies.
