Tourism day, established in April 2011, falls on May 19 each year, the date when Xu Xiake, dubbed the "Saint of Travel" in the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), began his 30 years of travel through the country and penned his masterpiece.
Ningde borders Fuzhou to the south, Wenzhou City and Zhejiang province to the north, and Nanping City to the west.
Like the rest of Fujian province, Ningde sits in a mountainous region but it also enjoys 878km of coastline facing the Taiwan Straits and East China Sea.
It is subjected to a humid subtropical climate, with occasional typhoons. The mean annual temperature ranges from 13.4 to 20.2 C, while mean annual rainfall ranges from 1,250 to 2,350 millimeters. SOURCE:China Daily
