The mighty Yangtze River, 416 kilometers across Anhui, is known as 800-mile Wanjiang River. String up a rich city and big port, create a different attitude of mountains and rivers. Approaching the mountains along the Anhui River, enjoy the boundless scenery.
In today’s cities along the Yangtze River in Anhui Province, the rivers reflect beautiful scenery and the traffic is crisscrossed. The four seasons here are distinct and the scenery is different. Together with the Yangtze River, it moistens the poetic atmosphere of misty clouds.
Anhui plays an important role in the development of Chinese culture. Thousands of years ago, Li Bai loved Anhui. He climbed famous mountains, enjoyed beautiful waters, visited old rain and made new acquaintance. He left behind many popular stories and wrote poems passing down through the ages. Down the river, from Anqing, where the Huangmei Opera is sung everywhere, to Chizhou, the “land of thousands of poets”, from Tongling, the “ancient bronze capital of China”, to Wuhu, the “City of Jiangdong”, and Ma’anshan, the “city of Chinese poetry”, peach blossoms are still smiling in the spring breeze. The 800-mile Wanjiang River shows the unique temperament of traditional culture and modern civilization.
