How did the yellow sea get its name?

    The name comes from the sand particles that color its water, originating from the yellow river, Huang He.
    The Yellow Sea (in North and South Korea, it is also called the West Sea) is the northern part of the East China Sea, which in turn is a part of the Pacific Ocean. It is located between Mainland China and the Korean peninsula. 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). The Korea Bay, between the Chinese Liaoning province and northwestern North Korea is also part of the Yellow Sea.
