JiuZhou: Part 1


A small town called JiuZhou in Huangping county, Guizhou province is not a typical Chinese tourist town; busy and commercial. The town has witnessed historical events in its own significance. During World War II – the American Air base was just outside of this town. And during the Red Army’s long march, Gen. Zhou Enlai, Chaiman Mao Zedong and many other leaders met up in this town.
