Cover Story: The “UnAkari” Jiangxi, China
Jiangxi (“xi” means west) got its name as it is located west of Jiangnan. Although often jokingly deemed as “China’s least noticed province” or called “Akari* Province”, Jiangxi owns magnificent mountains, beautiful rivers, charming ancient villages, as well as profound cultural and historical heritage. Lushan Global Geopark, Mount Sanqingshan, Wuyuan’s rapeseed flower field, “Porcelain Capital” Jingdezhen, Taoxichuan Ceramic Art Avenue, Wuyuan’s carving crafts and other intangible cultural heritage…these are all fascinating natural scenery and cultural attractions in Jiangxi. A place like this shouldn’t be “Akari” at all!
