Guiyang
Guiyang
was a 7th-century military outpost under the Sui and Tang, when the area around it was known as Juzhou (矩州).[3] It grew into a city named Shunyuan (順元) under the Mongolian Yuan dynasty sometime between their 1279 southwestern campaigns and 1283. By the time Guizhou
Guizhou
became a full province in 1413, its capital at Guiyang was also known as Guizhou.[4] It became a prefectural seat under the Ming and Qing.[5] Guiyang
Guiyang
grew rapidly during the development of the southwest that occurred after the Japanese invasion of China
China
during World War II. It has also grown rapidly since Deng Xiaoping's economic reforms reached it in the 1990s. Geography[edit] The city's heart is around the Dashizi (大十字), a "big cross", and Penshuichi (喷水池, literally "Fountain Pool"), a traffic intersection, in the center of which there was a large fountain until early 2010, when it was paved over for better traffic. Climate[edit] Guiyang
Guiyang
has a four-season, monsoon-influenced humid subtropical climate (Köppen: Cwa), tempered by its low latitude and high elevation. It has cool winters and moderate-temperature summers; the majority of the year's 1,118 millimetres (44.0 in) of precipitation occurs from May to July. The monthly 24-hour average temperature ranges from 5.1 °C (41.2 °F) in January to 23.9 °C (75.0 °F) in July, while the annual mean is 15.35 °C (59.6 °F). Rain is common throughout the year, with occasional flurries in winter. With monthly percent possible sunshine ranging from 12 percent in January to 41 percent in August, the city receives only 1150 hours of sunshine, making it one of China's least sunny major cities. Average monthly relative humidity is consistently above 75% throughout the year. The moderate temperature together with other factors including air quality, wind speed, etc. made Guiyang
Guiyang
