Quanzhou, located in the southeast of Fujian province, is a famous historical and cultural city and the starting point of the ancient Maritime SilkRoad.

With profound cultural accumulation and a long history, its economic development began as early as the Zhou Dynasty (c.11th century-256 BC).

Renowned cultural relics include the oldest existing mosque in China, the thousand-year-old Kaiyuan Temple and the oldest existing cross-sea girder bridge in China, Luoyang Bridge.
