Jiujiang is a prefecture-level city located on the southern shores of the Yangtze River in northwest Jiangxi Province. It is the second-largest prefecture-level city in Jiangxi province, after the provincial capital Nanchang. Jiujiang literally means "nine rivers".
Because of its proximity to the Yangtze River and Poyang Lake, Jiujiang is blessed with a uniquely attractive natural landscape. It is a major port on the Yangtze and is known as the gateway to Jiangxi Province. It is also a major tourist mecca with over 400 attractions located around the city.
Poyang Lake, the largest fresh-water lake in China, is inlaid on the vast land of South China like a resplendent pearl nurturing the people of Jiangxi. With picturesque scenery, they are well worth visiting. The Lake-View Pavilion, made of wood, is just located on the shore of the lake.
