Fujian province is very different from northern China. The climate is warm and mediterranean to sub-tropical, the landscape is dominated by banana and ltichi plantations, rice fields and flower plantations. The province lives of agriculture and indutry. Seafood like shrimp, crab, shells and clams define the local kitchen. The food is more spicy than in the North and probably more similar to European style food. I was in this province for a conference on beautiful Gulang Yu Island. From Xiamen City it is only a two hour flight to Hong Kong.
"Fujian's mild, humid, subtropical and marine climate is especially conducive to crop production. Of Fujian's 1.24 million hectares of cultivated land, 1 million hectares are rice fields. Rice, wheat, sweet potatoes, soybeans and peanuts are Fujian's major cash crops while sugarcane, tea, fruit, tobacco, rubber, jute and bluish dogbane are Fujian's important industrial crops.
Industry in Fujian is of considerable dimensions. There are 14,000 village and township enterprises, of which 250 are large and medium-sized key enterprises. The major industrial product groups are building materials, forest products, light industrial products, electronic products, chemical products, machinery products, metallurgical products and energy products." from http://www.fzu.edu.cn/fzu/f2_0.html
