Welcome to Fujian

The character "Fu" in "Fujian" means "Good Fortune" in Chinese, and this province is surely worthy of the name. Not only is the land here endowed with a subtropical climate, that gives it temperate winters and comfortable summers, but it is also dominated by a natural and often rugged beauty, and is a focal point for many interesting periods of China's history. The province currently has a population of around 33 million, with an area of 120,000 square kilometers, and a province wide local dialect, Minnan hua that is a close cousin of the Taiwanese local language.

History

Fujian, known in English as Fukien of Hokkien, has been part of the Chinese empire since the Qin dynasty (221-207 BC). In 1087, with the establishment of Fujian City's Office for Oceangoing Ships in the costal city of Quanzhou, overseas communications and foreign trade became prosperous. Silk, textiles, precious stones, porcelain and other Chinese products traveled from here along the maritime Silk to all over the world. When Marco Polo visited the area in late 13th century, he called Quanzhou “ one of the two ports in the world with the biggest flow of merchangdise.” In Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), Xiamen, with its excellent harbor and convenient maritime transportation gradually took the place of Quanzhou port. Huge number and became the stepping stone for Chinese people heading to Taiwan and South East Asia. Now most Taiwanese and many Chinese in South East Asia still consider Fujian to be their ancestral home.
