Jiangxi Province

Jiangxi Province

Jiangxi province is located on the southern banks of the middle and lower reaches of the Yangtze River. It played an important role in Chinese revolutionary history and has outstanding natural scenery.

To people in China, Jiangxi is a ‘red’ province, synonymous with heroic feats and revolutionary spirit. Its provincial capital Nanchang is known as the ‘cradle of the people’s army’, Jinggang Mountain is called the ‘cradle of the Chinese revolution’ and Ruijin lays claim to the moniker ‘cradle of the People’s Republic’. The events that took place in the mountains and forests of this province during the tumultuous first half of the 20th century ultimately shaped the destiny of modern China.

Visitors today will have a far more peaceful experience of Jiangxi, which is also a ‘green’ province. It offers a wonderful natural ecological environment with picturesque mountains, including Lushan Mountain, Jinggang Mountain, Sanqing Mountain, Longhu Mountain and Mingyue Mountain, and clear lakes, such as Poyang Lake, Tuolin Lake and Fairy Lake.

The rich culture of Jiangxi is exemplified in Jingdezhen, known as the world’s capital of porcelain. Porcelain-making was elevated to a prestigious art form in Jingdezhen over the course of more than a thousand years. Here, you can see the world’s best representation of this beautiful Chinese craft.

Jinggang Mountain
In the west of the province, Jinggang Mountain mixes natural beauty with revolutionary history. The area’s historical importance and scenic grandeur earned it a depiction on China’s 100-yuan note.

Sanqing Mountain
The three main peaks of Sanqing Mountain are said to represent three of the most important deities of Taoism. The striking granite landscape, diverse forest, and concentration of strange-shaped pillars and peaks combine to form a fantastical landscape, especially when it’s shrouded in mist.

Lushan Mountain
Lushan Mountain is located where the majestic Yangtze River meets the vast Poyang Lake. It has a marvellous landscape and is famous for its waterfall and springs, the former of which is highly regarded in China.
