Pingtan is another little fishing island on the coast. I say a little island, it is the fifth largest Island in China, and is reached through Fuqing by a bridge. It is a quaint little place, with some beautiful beaches, and due to the location in the Taiwanese Strait, has a lot of Taiwanese businesses and food there to be sampled and enjoyed.
To get to Pingtan Island from Fuzhou, you can just take a bus directly there, which makes it a lot easier, as you dont need to make any transfers. The bus takes a couple of hours, but is air conditioned, and only coat 45RMB when I left last year in July.
