Hefei and Huangshan are two cities located in Anhui Province in Eastern China. Hefei was named one of the three national garden cities , and it enjoys the reputation of “the Green City.” The Feishui River runs through it and it is surrounded by lush trees and fragrant flowers all the year around. The layout of the city proper features”Gardens in the City, and the City in Gardens.” Huangshan means Yellow Mountain in Chinese and the city is named after the famously scenic Yellow Mountains which cover much of the city’s vast geographic expanse. The city’s current jurisdiction covers much of the historical and cultural region of Huizhou, which together with Anqing formed the name of Anhui Province. Huangshan is home to two UNESCO World Heritage Sites, Mount Huangshan and Hongcun and Xidi, the ancient villages of southern Anhui. It is a leading tourist destination in China.
