Anhui Province Comes to U.S. plus New Flights

The Anhui province in China offers many beautiful scenic areas, from Mount Huangshan, a UNIESCO World Heritage Site, to Lake Chao, one of the five largest freshwater lakes in China. In an effort to introduce the world to Anhui and promote the area, Chen Li, deputy director general of the Anhui Visitors Bureau, recently visited Los Angeles. During his time in LA, Mr. Li revealed that China Eastern Airlines will be launching a direct flight from LA to Hefei, the capital of Anhui province, in the future.

Anhui, located in southeast China, has a population of more than 59 million people and many cultural and natural wonders. The Huangshan mountain range is known for its uniquely shaped granite peaks and has served as the inspiration for many artistic works, for instance, and the Huangmei Opera, also located in Anhui, is one of the oldest operas in China.

While the launch date for the China Eastern Airlines route from LA to Hefei has not been officially announced, Anhui can be reached by various methods currently: visitors can fly from Beijing to Huangshan, take a high-speed train from Shanghai to Hangzhou and then a bus to Huangshan, or take a ferry from Chongqing to Huangshan.
