A captivating blood red ocean flows as far as the eye can see.
Every September, the largest wetland and reed marsh in the world flames violent red. The alkaline flatlands along China’s coast of Panjin are the sole territory of the Suaedea salsa plant; no other species can survive the harsh conditions here.
Walk over the labyrinth of wooden platforms that crisscross the sprawling expanse of red to get the best view – and with the polarizing filter in your Ray-Ban Chromance lenses, the boundless red marsh stands out even redder against the ribbons of blue water.
