Haizhou Mine is one of Asia's largest open cast mines, 4km long, 2km wide and 700m deep. The mine was started during the 1940 under the Japanese occupation and was exhausted and closed in 2005. The mine is now reopened as a show mine, with a viewing platform for visitors. Numerous huge machines are on display around the mine, including huge dredges built in the Soviet Union. But the work is not complete, the government plans a tourist complex with hotels, restaurants, a golf course and a park. A steam train museum is also under construction.
