In the west suburb of Shantou City and neighboring Jieyang City and Chaozhou City, this scenery area is the home for the symbolic tower of the Tropic of Cancer, Shantou University, Qirihong Park and Wenggong Academy. The symbolic tower of the Tropic of Cancer is 13.6 meters tall and quite unique in its design. Each year, during the summer solstice, the sun arrives at this point and begins to travel southward. Shantou University boasts elegant and balanced campus architecture. The elevated passages, graceful white buildings and campus landscape earn her the honor of China's best university architecture. Qirihong Park neighbors Shantou University and Wenggong Academy. It was built to commemorate the Seven Day revolutionary regime that was established in Chaoshan region after the Nanchang Uprising in 1927. Wenggong Academy was the place where Weng Wanda, Chief of the War Department in the Ming Dynasty, had his schooling. It is now a place for outing and sight-seeing.
