Introducing Fúzhōu

Fúzhōu, capital of Fújiàn, is a prosperous modern city that attracts a significant amount of Taiwanese investment, reflected in innumerable shopping centres and expensive restaurants. Unless you’re here on business the city holds very little interest, except as a launching pad for visiting Wǔyí Shān or Taimu Mountain.

The city dates back to the 3rd century AD, and over the years became an important trading centre for tea. Marco Polo described the city as a ‘veritable marvel’, perhaps as applicable then as it is today, considering the scope of recent development.
