China - July 25th, 2011

This wide-swath ASAR image shows the Qiongzhou Strait, also called the Hainan Strait, is a body of water that separates the Leizhou Peninsula in Guangdong, southern China, to the north from Hainan Island to its south. The strait connects the Gulf of Tonkin in the west to the James Shoal on the eastern edge of the South China Sea.

Mountains can be observed in the upper left corner, near the border with Vietnam, and in the southern half of Hainan Island. Wuzhi Mountain is the highest peak in Hainan, towering 1,840 m above the center of the island.
