Why Study in SWUT


Our City

Rizhao, lying in the southeast of Shandong Province, gets its name because it is known as “the first city to embrace the sunrise in the morning”. The land area is 5371 square meters and population is 2.96 million. With neither a severely cold winter nor a scorching summer, Rizhao is described as having a “blue sky, blue sea and golden beach”. Along its 168.5 kilometers of coastline, there are over 50 kilometers of high-quality beach that greets the first sunshine in the morning. Rizhao enjoys beautiful scenery with both mountains and sea.
