Brief

Huangshan City, formerly known as Huizhou Prefecture, also known as Xin'an in ancient times, has a long history with many celebrities.

With the prosperity of Huizhou merchants, economic and cultural schools like Xin'an Neo-Confucianism, Xin'an Medicine, Xin'an Painting, Huizhou Bonsai, Huizhou Architecture, Huizhou Cuisine, and Hui Opera, were all developed profoundly.
