Zhejiang is an eastern coastal province of the People’s Republic of China. Inland, Zhejiang consists mostly of hills, which account for about 70% of its total area. Valleys and plains are found along the coastline and rivers.

The coastline is ragged and has many bays. The three large bays visible here are Taizhou Bay, Aiwan Bay and Yueqing Bay (from top to bottom). In the fullsize orthorectified image, ships can be seen navegating the bays and rivers, and several bridges can be observed as well.

There are also over three thousand islands along the coast, in the East China Sea.To the east is the East China Sea, beyond which lie the Ryukyu Islands of Japan (upper right quadrant).
