  旁白: 秦皇岛是中国惟一一座

  Qinhuangdao is the only city

  in China

  以帝王的名称命名的城市。

  that was named after an emperor.

  既然名为秦皇,

  Since it's called Qinhuangdao,

  那么跟中国的第一位皇帝——秦始皇

  it must have had an inseparable relationship

  自然有着密不可分的关系。

  with China's first emperor, Qin Shihuang.

  传说,

  It is said

  这里就是秦始皇拜海求仙的地方

  here's the place where Emperor

  Qin Shihuang

  拜海求仙,

  paid homage to the sea and

  sought a magic drug.

  有点儿神秘是吧?

  Does this sound a bit mysterious?
