Fujian Travel Guide
Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikivoyage or other free sources online. Once home to snake-headed barbarians and elusive immortals, Fujian is a region of steep mountains, river valleys and a lush subtropical coastline. While the coastal cities have been engaging in trade for hundreds of years, its mountainous interior remained inaccessible until as late as the 1960s, when the communists built roads through the dense jungle. Rumour has it that the legendary South China tiger still lurks in the most remote mountain regions. Fujian s rugged inland remains relatively unknown, with the exception of the tourist resort of W yí Sh n in the northwest and Taimu Mountain near the border of Zhejiang province. Both mountains offer fantastic hiking opportunities. Southwest Fujian, near Yongding, is the place to see the unique earthhouses of the Hakka people, one of Fujian s many ethnic groups. This book offers information on Fujian province in South East China and its most notable places.
