Picking mulberries, tasting Fushan steamed buns, listening to the sounds of nature...On the morning of May 21, the Yantai Experience of Foreign Friends was held at the Yusheng mulberry garden at Dongting Sub-district of Fushan District, Yantai.

They posed for photos in excitement. While tasting the fresh mulberries, Vivi, an overseas student from Indonesia studying in Shandong Technology and Business University thumbed up and said, "The mulberries here are so sweet. It's the first time I taste the fruit. I will come here again next time."
