The East Sea separates Taiwan from Quanzhou, making it the second largest port in the world after Hong Kong. The Jin and Luo rivers flow from the Taiwan Strait into Qu Tanzhou Bay, and from this eastern city, the "East Sea" separates Taiwan from Quanzhuang, the largest city in China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region. In the east of the cities there are two major rivers: the Jin and the Luo, both flowing across the road to Quzanhou in the Bay of Taiwan.
The east of the city borders the East Sea, which separates Taiwan from Quanzhou, making it the second largest port in the world after Hong Kong. The region of the southern coast of Fujian Province consists of Xiamen and Zhangzhou in the south and Putian in the north. This makes it one of the largest cities in the Chinese autonomous region of Guangxi Zhuang with a population of 1.5 million.
This city in southeastern Fujian is known as the largest port in Asia and is the place where China sees the most locals. During the Song and Yuan Dynasty, the port of Citong reached its peak and was called the "Great Port of the Orient" by Marco Polo. It exudes a charming historical charm and is one of China's most popular tourist attractions and a popular destination for tourists.
Marco Polo Ibn Battuta, who visited him and was praised by travellers, and Marco Polo and his fellow travellers in the Middle East and North Africa praised him as "the great port of the East." Marco Polo Ibn battuta visited the port of Citong in the southeastern province of Fujian, China, during the Song and Yuan dynasty and after his visit to the city of Dongguan in southern China in 1468. Marco Polo Ibn battuta visited the ports of Cixi in the eastern province of Fujianshui and the eastern province of Guangdong in the Chinese province of Fujianshui as part of his Asia travels between 1469 and 1480.
The port of Cixi in the eastern province of Fujianshui and the city of Dongguan in southern China have been named by Nat Geo as one of the best coasts in China.
Quanzhou Jinjiang International Airport supports flights to and from Beijing, Shanghai, Guangdong, Hong Kong and other major cities in China. Nearby Xiamen has a long history of international trade with the US and Europe, including the World Trade Center in New York City and the Statue of Liberty in Washington, D.C. To get there, numerous airlines operate from the city's airport, with flights from China Airlines, Air China, China Eastern Airlines and China Southern Airlines.
In the future (2012) you can go all the way south to Shenzhen and beyond, and trains will go further north to Wenzhou, Hangzhou and Shanghai. There are many fairly slow trains that connect Quanzhou to Shanghai by train from Fuzhou (see High Speed Trains in China for details). However, they stop at the city's main railway station, which means they will be connected to the train in Fizhou.
I have visited Quanzhou for the past three years, and last year the vibrant street food scene caught the attention of a number of film directors, writers and actors who wanted to film the city. Kinmen Island, which is controlled by Taiwan, has a small island with a population of about 1.5 million people. It also houses some of the world's most popular restaurants, such as the famous Bao'an (also in the Y = 300 area) and the popular Huanghua (y = 500 area).
Many monks fled to the south after one of the many wars in China and founded the southern Shaolin, which began at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th century with the construction of the Great Temple of Laojun (Y = 500 area). The Twin Towers of Taobao Temple (y = 300 square meters) are one of the oldest Buddhist temples in China, while the statue of La Mojun in Henan (Henan) illustrates the presence of Taoism.
The sandbanks the river created near the city largely paralyzed the port during World War I, but large "Chinese scrap yards" still use the river to trade tea, sugar, tobacco, porcelain, and nanquim. Be sure your students understand that China is the world's largest exporter of trade and is not isolated from foreign trade, even though most Chinese officials have low opinions of traders. The silk trade by sea brought the South Indians to China via the Chinese and South Indian ports. China had a significant influence in South India, and it is highly likely that the Indians brought back to India knowledge of silk cultivation and Chinese fabrics. Chinese trade is still called the "Silk Trade" or "Silk Road" (Y = 1,000 square meters).
