East China ports

Currently, there are two cruise ports in Zhejiang province, including Wenzhou International Cruise Port and Zhoushan Archipelago International Cruise Port.

Wenzhou, close to Shanghai, aims to develop itself to be a major cruise port in the East China region as part of its short-term development plan.
