Located in northern Jiangsu Province, Xuzhou is a classic modern Chinese city. Its history dates back over the past two millennium, and is physically evident throughout with a large number of cultural relics dating as far back as the Han Dynasty scattered about the city and local countryside.

The annual average temperature is 13 to 16 degrees Celsius with dry winters dropping below freezing at night. Summers are hot and wet with frequent thunderstorms. Spring and autumn are short, but very pleasant, sunny, and dry.

Xuzhou cuisine is delicious and is influenced predominantly by Shandong to the north. The Yangtze region to the south also leaves its mark with an abundance of seafood, sweet and sour flavors, soup dishes, and chilies. There is enormous opportunity to wander the traditional marketplaces and sample this fine food in atmospheric surroundings. Everything from enjoying dumplings and draft beer on a stool by the roadside to dining on elegant seafood in style in world-class restaurants awaits the epicurean.
