Fuyang is situated in the northwest of Anhui Province, neighboring Bozhou and Huainan to the east and separated from Lu'an by the Huaihe River. It is also bordered on the north and west with Henan Province. Decorated with exquisite brick carvings, Wenfeng Pagoda is the landmark in Fuyang which carried the ancient people's wish that more students would win official ranks. The West Lake of Yingzhou, once as famous as  West Lake in Hangzhou embraces stunning views and ancient buildings. Tourists can also appreciate Fuyang paper cutting, Yingshang flower drum lamp and Jieshou colored pottery.


Wenfeng Pagoda is a landmark structure standing on Yingzhou Lu, the central artery of downtown. It was built in 1796 during the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911). Like the Kuixing (the god of literature) Tower at the southeast corner of the city wall of old city zone, Wenfeng Pagoda is also a Fengshui (Geomantic) tower. It is said that in order to reverse the weakening of the development of literature and the lack of famous literati and officials, these two brick towers were built in southeastern part of the city. The land is low-lying there which would prevent spiritual forces from overflowing outwardly from the ground. Kuixing Tower was first constructed in 1574 of the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). Wenfeng Pagoda was built later because locals determined that Kuixing Tower was not high enough. 

The West Lake of Yingzhou which is 15 kilometers (9 miles) west of the city proper is becoming a top attraction for a Fuyang Travel. The scenic area contains a stele forest, old style buildings, and garden buildings, all of which blend perfectly with the surrounding natural scenery. 

Other Scenic Spots: Bali River Scenic Area, Nanhu Park, Zhangzhuang Park

Historically, Yingzhou and Bozhou are interrelated, but relatively independent. The domains of the two places were first unified during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). It was not until the early Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) that the name Yingzhou was changed to the present one.
