T he provincial capital is Hefei. Anhui belonged to Jiangnan Province at the beginning of the Qing Dynasty. In the 6th year during the reign of Emperor Kangxi (AD 1667), Jiangnan Province was split apart as two separate provinces, Jiangsu Province (including Shanghai Municipality) and Anhui Province. The name “Anhui” comes from the combination of the first character of two prefectures’ names at that time: Anqing and Huizhou. The abbreviation for Anhui is called “Wan” for short, since the capital Anqing was the State of Wan in ancient times and there were Mount Wan and Wan River within the territory. With the Yangtze River as the boundary, Anhui is split into two regions: Wanbei (North Anhui) and Wannan (South Anhui). Hefei, Suzhou, Huaibei, Bozhou, Fuyang, Huainan, Bengbu, Chuzhou, Chaohu, Lu’an and Anqing fall into the jurisdiction of Wanbei while Huangshan, Chizhou, Tongling, Xuancheng, Wuhu and Ma’anshan belong to Wannan. Anhui has splendid scenery and rich cultural relics.
