"The natural landscapes and ecological environment of Nanwan Lake have left a deep impression on me. I have been to many places in China and have observed that China is paying more and more attention to environmental protection. Many regions have proposed initiatives and policies to protect the environment based on their resource-related advantages. I believe that Nanwan Lake serves as a valuable example in terms of protecting the ecological environment and developing tourism based on natural advantages," said Mohammad Saiyedul Islam, a student from Bangladesh.
