A Brief Introduction of Hefei

Hefei is the capital city of Anhui Province in central China, north of the Yangzi River that divides the province into two parts. An important agricultural trading center and military base in early times, Hefei was made provincial capital in 1949. The famous scenic area of Mt. Huang (Yellow Mountains) in southern Anhui is across the Yangzi River and thus more easily reached from the cities of Wuhu or Hangzhou.

Hefeiís history reaches back some 2,000 years to the Western Han period, when the town was an important agricultural trading center. Hefei was an important military base during the disorders of the Three Kingdoms following the break-up of the Han Empire.

In modern times Hefei has become the industrial, cultural, and scientific center of Anhui Province, and the home of the prestigious University of Science and Technology.
