Fuzhou Travel Guide, China

The city of Fuzhou is a prefecture level city for People’s Republic of China. It is part of Province of Fujian and is also the capital for Fujian Province. The city of Fuzhou has huge amounts of banyan trees in and around the city and hence it is called as the city of Banyan Trees (also known as Rongcheng in Chinese language).

For better administration the city of Fuzhou was divided into 13 sections which contained 5 districts (namely Cangshan, Taijiang, Gulou, Jin'an, and Mawei), six counties (namely Pingtan, Minhou, Yongtai, Minqing, Luoyuan, and Lianjiang), and two cities of county level (namely Changle and Fuquing).

Unfortunately the city of Fuzhou has faced many wars against Taiwan and due to this Fuzhou could never grow as recognized city for People’s Republic of China. Fuzhou used to be recognized as the least developed capital for any provincial state in the country of China. In last few years the local government of Fuzhou has recognized the city as an important hub for growth and development. This made them invest into the city of Fuzhou and it has helped the city become an important trading center for People’s Republic of China.

Although the city of Fuzhou isn’t that rich in terms of Chinese culture, it has a couple of historical monuments and sights that help the tourism industry. Education has grown considerably in the city of Fuzhou in last few years and government has taken serious interest in improving the quality of education in the city of Fuzhou. As of today, there are seven government financed universities in the city of Fuzhou that regularly attract those who love to gain knowledge.

The city of Fuzhou boasts of multiple food processing industries, chemical industries, engineering industries, timber working companies, printing services, paper making organizations, and many textile industries. All these have played a major role in enhancing the industrial importance of the city on the national level. The city also boasts of a small steel plant which has been running continuously since 1958.

In the year 1984 the city of Fuzhou was listed under open cities which means that foreign industries can set up their factories in the city. As a result, Nike has its factory in Fuzhou and Adidas, Reebok stuffs are also being manufactured regularly under a Taiwanese firm which has four factories in the city for the same purpose.
