The Yellow Sea is the northern part of the East China Sea, which in turn is a marginal sea of the Pacific Ocean. It is located between Mainland China and the Korean peninsula. Its name comes from the sand particles that color its water, originating from the Yellow River.

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

Korea Bay, between the Chinese Liaoning province and northwestern North Korea is also part of the Yellow Sea.

Bohai Sea and Korea Bay are separated by Liaodong Peninsula, with Dalian at its southernmost point.
