Details

It is easy to have a quick look at China's past and present, but it takes time to gain a panoramic knowledge of China. The "Panoramic China" series is meant to assist readers, especially those overseas, in this respect. Each volume in the series focuses on a province, municipality or autonomous region, describing, with illustrations, the outstanding characteristics of each area from different perspectives.   

Fujian: Mountain and Maritime Cultures

Fujian, lying between mountains and sea, is a beautiful, indeed a uniquely favored place. The verdant Wuyi Mountain rising in the north of Fujian, has the steepness and grandeur of Mount Huangshan, plus the prettiness and elegance of Guilin's mountains and waters, it is the most magnificent in Southeast China. In particular, Xiamen, a garden city located at the southern extremity of Fujian, poised between blue sky and green sea, and its famous Gulangyu Islet with its rare flowers, winds and sea waves, together witnessed the humiliations of modern China's history.
