The east beach of Chongming is also a necessary passage for the annual river tracing and river descending migration of various organisms.

Main development
In 1992, Chongming Dongtan was listed as a priority conservation sequence in China's biodiversity conservation action plan, which belongs to the wetland ecosystem type of international significance. In 1999, Chongming Dongtan was admitted as a member of "East Asia Australia Wade reserve network" by wetland International Asia Pacific Organization. In January 2002, Chongming Dongtan was designated as an important international wetland by the Secretariat of the Convention on wetlands. On September 14, 2002, Dongtan tourism was officially launched. The long dike is erected with boulders to commemorate, the trestle is built to get close to the wetland, the bamboo tower is built to overlook the East China Sea, and the post station is built for tourists to relax. The East Beach lifts the mysterious veil. Dongtan migratory bird protection will be the focus of Chongming tourism development. According to the development layout of the master plan, wetland park will be developed, Dongtan sunrise will be observed, watchtower, birdwatching platform and bird museum will be built, participatory amusement projects will be developed, and "farmhouse Tour" will be developed. At that time, it will become a tourist attraction integrating leisure, sightseeing and amusement.

Best time for bird watching
The best time for bird watching in the East China Sea is in the morning, because the sunrise in the East China Sea is a natural attraction of Chongming. The east beach of Chongming is at the forefront of the East China Sea. It's killing two birds with one stone to be able to watch both birds and sunrise in the morning.
