10 Chinese Cities' and Provinces' 'Business Cards' may just Inspire a Trip

Shi Changhong, a designer from southern China’s Guizhou province, recently became an Internet icon. Shi spent two years sketching “business cards” for 34 cities and provinces in China. His illustrations incorporate each province’s name and most representative spots to create a design that the artist hopes can be appreciated by even those with no formal background in art. Chinese netizens have praised his work, remarking that people could learn a lot about China just by looking through the cards.

Anhui province

Shi depicts the most distinctive features of traditional Anhui-style architecture – unusually high “firewalls” (intended to prevent fires) – in the card design. Hongcun Village, a 900-year-old settlement located at the foot of Mount Huangshan, boasts such typical residences, in addition to carvings that are said to be among the best preserved in China. The village became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2000.
