Yellow Sea

The Yellow Sea is the northern part of the East China Sea, which in turn is a part of the Pacific Ocean. Its name comes from the sand particles that color its water, originating from the yellow river, Huang He.

The innermost bay of the Yellow Sea is called Bohai Sea (previously Pechili Bay or Zhili Bay). Into it flows both Huang He (through the Shandong province and its capital Jinan) and Hai He (through Beijing and Tianjin).
