Eastern Yunnan

The City of Qujing

Qujing City is located to the east of Yunnan province and is bordered by Guizhou and Guangxi provinces. The city of Qujing, the location of the provinces administrative offices, has been a strategic location in Yunnan since ancient times. It is often referred to as the key to entering Yunnan. From the ShuHan Kingdom (AD221--263) to the early Tang Dynasty, it was the political, economic, and cultural center of the province and the earliest capital of old Yunnan (which included South Sichuan and West Guizhou) for 500 years. Today it is the second largest city in Yunnan, and is located only 157 km from Kunming. Its railways and highways radiate in all directions making transportation to and communications with other areas very convenient.
