Zhaoqing is a famous cultural city with a history of more than 2,200 years. The name Duanzhou, which was the earliest name of Zhaoqing, originated in the 9th year of Sui Dynasty (589 A.D.). In Song Dynasty it was changed to Zhaoqing, which means bringing in the fortune and happiness from then on.

Zhaoqing was the political, economical and cultural center of Xijiang River region and military town. It is the cradle of Lingnan Culture as well as the earliest crossroads between Western civilization and traditional Chinese culture.
