Three cities in China named after fruits sound sweeter than others. How many were you?
In everyday life, I don't know if you will sometimes find magical and interesting things around you that others easily overlook. There are many around me. I remember once, when I was sitting in a room with friends, suddenly thought flashed through my head: "Is there a city named after us?"
Moved by curiosity, two of them took out their mobile phones, entered their names on mobile phone map, and were surprised to find that city named after us was actually in use. At time we were both surprised and wonderful. I believe that everyone will come across such wonderful and interesting things in their daily life.
When it comes to cities named after themselves, I think about immensity of our country. If you watch carefully, you will find that there are cities named after fruits. What is origin of these cities? Is it because people who live here are too fond of eating a certain fruit, or is it named after a certain fruit that is abundant here?
What's going on? Next, let's get to know some cities named after fruits in our country to find out what their names mean.
The first city we'll talk about is Meizhou. When I mentioned city of Meizhou, Hakka dialect came to mind. The Hakka dialect is really pleasing to ear. Personally, I like this language style. I do not understand, but I feel that distance between them has decreased. as soon as I speak. At same time, Hakka dialect is also one of seven main dialects in my country.
Meizhou is located in northeast of Guangdong Province, bordering Jiangxi Province. The main terrain of Meizhou city is mountains with endless scenery. This is a tourist attraction. Thousands of tourists come here every year. Tourists should pay attention to sun. protection .
Meizhou City used to be called Jingzhou. In past, people did not use surname, name and character of members of royal family. Plum trees were planted everywhere, so city was renamed Meizhou.
Presently, plum blossoms have become city flower of Meizhou. Plum blossoms are sent for spring due to cold winter. Therefore, people think plum blossoms are a symbol of auspiciousness. And plum blossoms persist through changing seasons. The produced plums can satisfy people's hunger and thirst, reflecting hard work and perseverance of precious spirit of Meizhou people, so Meizhou is also famous for it.
The second wonderful city is Zaozhuang. When it comes to Zaozhuang, mind is full of marmalade, and these are candied dates. I feel that whole city is full of sweetness. I don't know if you feel same way as me.
Zaozhuang, called Yi, is located in Shandong Province, near hometown of Confucius and Mencius. At same time, Zaozhuang is also a famous coal town with many coal mining development zones. Zaozhuang has a long history and has been established since the Xia, Shang and Zhou dynasties.
Even during Xia, Shang and Zhou dynasties, Zaozhuang was full of jujube trees and locals lived on it, so they called it "Zaozhuang". Later, with change of name of dynasties, Zaozhuang was discovered , more and more foreigners came here, they began to develop coal mines and created many coal mine areas.
We began to cut down and throw away a large number of marmalade trees. Gradually, jujube trees became fewer and fewer, and they were almost cut down. To perpetuate history, locals always used name of place "Zaozhuang",Zaozhuang has always been located on this patch of land of Qilu's descendants, Fuying.
Third is Xiantao City. Every time I mention Xiantao City, I think of queen mother's flat peaches. Xiantao City, located in Hubei Province, is famous hometown of champions in my country. Xiantao City has flat terrain and beautiful scenery. This is "city on water south of Yangtze River" in my country. The water and soil here are especially nutritious, suitable for retirement and climate is also good. The climate is mild and rains are wet, which is suitable for taking care of sky of Year.
Why is Xiantao City called Xiantao? Is it called Xiantao because it is rich in peaches? There are different opinions about origin of Xiantao. According to historical records, it is said that in early years, Jinduan and Han rivers flowed through this place, forming a gabled jetty, so people called this place "Jiandaozui".
During Ming Dynasty, later generations considered this name unfortunate, therefore, depending on terrain, it was renamed "Xiantaodu". It was named "Xiantao City".
Xiantao has a long history, more than a thousand years ago, with a rich historical and cultural heritage and rapid economic development. It has become a city with investment potential. It can be seen how hard local people study and how well culture is transmitted.
By way, I'm wondering if you have any idea about aforementioned cities named after fruits, and have you broken stereotype about certain cities? When it comes to fruits, you should be more familiar with tropical fruits, and then you should think about cities rich in tropical fruits, such as Sanya, Xishuangbanna and other cities. Today I deciphered these cities named after fruits. I believe that when you mention fruits in future, you will think not only of cities that produce fruits, but also cities named after fruits. I wonder if you know any other cities in my country named after fruits?
