During the Tang Dynasty (618-907) Jingzhou was China’s transportation hub, and its convenient access to various parts of the country gave it a uniquely strategic position. Today Jingzhou is crossed by national highways No. 318 and 207, and the Shanghai-Chongqing and Taiyuan-Macao expressways. The Jingzhou Yangtze River Bridge, completed in 2002, connects north-south transportation. The Jingzhou Harbor, a national category II port of entry, is o­ne of the ten modern harbors along the Yangtze River Economic Belt. It has an annual cargo handling capacity of 4 million tons, and is capable of accommodating 5,000-ton ships. Its container wharf handles more than 10,000 standard containers a year, making Jingzhou the third largest container port along the upper and middle reaches of the Yangtze River, next o­nly to Wuhan and Chongqing. Jingzhou’s national grade-II Shashi Airport accommodates Boeing 737s and now runs 15 routes to Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Xiamen, and a few other places.

Jingzhou Festivals

A major power during the Spring and Autumn and Warring States periods, the State of Chu left a rich cultural legacy. o­ne of its great poets, Qu Yuan, is celebrated as the first Chinese poet, and his Chu Ci (Chu Poems) established a literary form espoused by men of letters in the dynasties that followed. The traditional Double Fifth (or Dragon Boat) Festival, when Chinese people eat zongzi (cone-shaped steamed glutinous rice wrapped in bamboo or reed leaves) and hold dragon-boat races is dedicated to the memory of Qu Yuan.
The Three Kingdoms (220-280) was another period in Chinese history when Jingzhou was prominent. It was the setting of many of the scenarios in the classic novel Romance of the Three Kingdoms, for example “Liu Bei Borrows Jingzhou,” and “Guan Yu Loses Jingzhou through Negligence.” Eighty-two of the novel’s 120 chapters have strategically significant Jingzhou as background. During the Three Kingdoms Period, when Cao Cao, Liu Bei and Sun Quan controlled respectively the northern, southwestern and southeastern parts of China, Jingzhou was right at the juncture of the three contending domains.
