What happens when the tilt-shift photography effect is applied to Yazhou landmarks? They look like they have been miniaturized or built from Lego blocks! Let's take a look at the adorable tiny city.

Yazhou, also known as Yazhou Ancient City, is located in Sanya city, Hainan province. For nearly 2,000 years, it was the political, economic, and cultural center of southern Hainan. These days, many ancient and traditional buildings can still be seen here, attracting architecture, history, and photography enthusiasts alike.

Yazhou district has a tropical climate, with an annual average temperature of 25.4 C. With excellent environmental conditions and abundant natural resources, Yazhou has become a tropical fruit-producing area and one of the largest Nanfan (southern agricultural) breeding bases in China.

Yazhou Bay Science and Technology City is one of the key scientific and technological innovation parks of the Hainan Free Trade Port. The park mainly focuses on two sections: the Nanfan scientific research, which is the main center of China's seed industry; and the deep ocean science and technology area, which serves as the main center for the country's innovative deep ocean technologies.

The beautiful scenery of Yazhou makes it the perfect place to stop and snap a few photos. Ancient buildings that have stood the test of time contrast beautifully with the modern high-rises, creating visually arresting images. With a tilt-shift lens, these familiar scenes turn into adorable miniatures, giving viewers a new perspective on these old city streets.
