Yingtan, nestled in northeast Jiangxi province, derives its name from a deep pool where "fierce currents swirl as eagles dance aloft". Backed by the storied Longhu Mountains and facing the picturesque Poyang Lake basin, this historic city boasts over 3,600 years of culture.

As the cradle of Daoism, Yingtan abounds with ancient sites and relics. The Longhu Mountain World Natural Heritage Site, ancestral home of Celestial Master Zhang Daoling, ancient Shangqing Old Town, and ancient Yue Cliff Tombs attract droves of visitors.

In the urban core, sip tea in a traditional garden or browse antiques at the ancient Guangchang Pavilion. Visit the iconic Yuehu Scenic Area to admire the "Number One Pavilion in Jiangxi" while cruising the lake by boat. At night, Xingang Square comes alive with dancing fountains and light shows.

Both a living museum where history permeates daily life and a modern hub filled with vitality, Yingtan offers the best of old and new. Come immerse in folk culture and timeless wisdom in this land of eagles and dragons.
