Xinxiang City
 
introduction
 

Xinxiang, located to the north of the Yellow River and to the south of the Taihang Mountain, is one of the cradles of the Chinese civilization. The Battle of Muye (1046 B.C. at the turn of the Shang and Zhou Dynasties), was a famous battle in history, took place on this land. The continental climate of the North Temperate Zone here is characterized by four distinct seasons, with a cold winter and a hot summer besides a comparatively moderate spring and autumn. The annual average temperature here is 14.6℃ and the annual precipitation is 573.4 mm.
Xinxiang is an environment-friendly city. The south part of Taihang Mountains, which presents a natural picture of verdant woods, running waterfalls, flowing streams, perilous peaks and gorgeous rocks, expands for thousands of square kilometers. The Yellow River winds through Xinxiang, extending about 170 kilometers, and all the year round its banks are lined with green grass and shadowy forests. The ancient course of Yellow River, which was formed as the result of the repeated bursts and diversions of Yellow River, preserves numerous lakes, bogs and marshes. Xinxiang is dressed in green with verdant woods, flourishing grass and the vast expanse of waters.
Xinxiang is a city with many different colorful cultures. Traces of people have been found here that date back to as early as 8000 years ago. First named, Yong State in ancient times over 1400 years ago, Xinxiang was under the administration of two kingdoms during the Spring and Autumn Period, and the Warring States Period. In the Han Dynasty, it was renamed Huojia State which remained until the year A.D.586 of the Sui Dynasty when Xinxiang was set up as a county. In the long river of history, Xinxiang witnessed such great events as: Muye Battle (the war at the end of Shang dynasty BC1600—1046, which compelled King Zhou to set fire to himself), and the wars during the Warring States period and the Han Dynasty.  Many historical celebrities or hermits were either born here or had visited here, leaving many anecdotes and excellent literary works, including the statesmen such as, Jiang Shang ( the minister of King Wu of Zhou Dynasty) and Bi Gan ( the minister of King Zhou of Shang Dynasty ); litterateurs or poets such as Li Bai,(618 A.D.—907A.D. of the Tang Dynasty), Su Shi, (1127 A.D.—1279 A.D. of the Southern Song Dynasty), Yue Fei: the famous general from the Southern Song Dynasty, the Qianlong Emperor: a famous Emperor from the Qing Dynasty (618 A.D.—907A.D.), Yuan Shikai: the first President of Republic of China ( 1911 A.D.—1949 A.D.), Xu Shichang: the fifth President of Republic of China, as well as many other notable people from Chinese history.
Xinxiang is an ideal choice for tourism. You will feel relaxed and happy here with several choices of scenery available: a visit in the mountains, a rest in the cottage; tasting Henan food, watching the Henan Opera, or immersing yourself in the picturesque and natural scenery, as well as enjoying the simple and traditional customs here.
