Anhui

Anhui, “Wan” for short, is an inland province of China, and is geographically part of the East China region. Located across the basins of the Yangtze River and Huai River, it borders several other provinces.  The name “Anhui” comes from a combination of the first characters of two prefectures’ names at the time: Anqing and Huizhou. And the abbreviation for Anhui, “Wan” comes from the fact that Anqing was the capital of the state of Wan in ancient times.  Today, Hefei is Anhui’s provincial capital and the region economically belongs to the central China economic zone. 

Anhui’s landscape is dominated by plains, hills and low mountains. The regional cultures of Anhui are mainly divided into Hui, Jianghuai, and around the Huai River. It is one of the provinces with the most abundant natural tourism resources in China. Five key national scenic spots are located in Anhui, including the striking Mount Huangshan, which is the model for Anhui’s landscape and Lake Chao, which is one of the five largest freshwater lakes in China.
