At night Xinghua city, the county-level city administered by Taizhou city in East China's Jiangsu province, is dressed to impress – decorated by a raft of lanterns and other lighting that extends from city to countryside.
Recently some of the entries from a photo contest, organized by the Jiangsu Province Photographers Association and the publicty department of the CPC Xinghua Municipal Committee, were displayed to show just how splendid Xinghua is at night.
