Question: Where is Anhui? What is there to see? Visitor's Guide to Anhui Province
Answer:

Anhui Province lies directly west of Shanghai, Zhejiang Province and Jiangsu Province. It is a landlocked, rather poor, province in south-central-eastern China.

The capital of the province is Hefei.

Yellow Mountain or Huangshan (黄山) is one of the most famous scenic spots in China and is in Anhui Province. Hundreds of thousands of people visit the area during the peak season.

More about visiting Yellow Mountain:

Nearby the Yellow Mountain Scenic Area are Xidi and Hongcun, two UNESCO-listed villages famous for their special architecture.

Anhui is also home to the famous Jiuhuashan, a holy Buddhist mountain area.
