An Adventure in the Tropics
The town of Danyancat, located in the beautiful province of Hubei Province in China is also commonly known as Danang. The origin of this name can be traced back to the old throne of the Fang family, which was held by Suiping during the Song Dynasty (Dynasty Hexograph, Volume 5) in the 9th century. This was the time when there were great prosperity and power in the region due to the silk trade. Although this period did not last for very long it was a period of great wealth and power for the region and many of the local residents were able to build impressive monasteries. When the Ming Dynasty came into power the fortunes of the region increased along with the privileges and power that it offered to its citizens.
The prosperity of Danyancat changed drastically during the years of the Boxer Rebellion. This was a period of civil unrest in which a large number of people were killed and thousands more were displaced to other areas of China. This was an era when there was significant turmoil in the kingdom with different groups battling for control of the region. There were only a few wealthy families that remained in the area with their wealth and power was largely lost to the newcomers who had joined the war against the foreigners.
This was a period where there were very few distractions for the only fans that could be found in the remote areas of the region. The only means of entertainment were the Buddhist temples and monasteries. A monk by the name of Fa Hai built the largest and best monastery in Danyanghou while his followers built a number of the other monasteries and temple in the area. This was in fact the first form of Buddhism in China that was transmitted to the outside world. Monks brought teachings from their home countries to these new communities and these people practiced Buddhism there with the same dedication that they had when they were living in their monasteries.
Today, despite the hardships and adversities of their past, the residents of Danyanghou are able to live relatively normal lives. They do not have to worry about being swept away by the rising and setting of the sun or about whether they will be lucky enough to catch a red crab that has been sighted in their waters. Their only task is to sit back and enjoy the splendor of their surroundings and to let their worries and hopes go out of their minds as they enjoy the fresh air, the serenity, the sound of the waves crashing on the shore and the cuisine of the region.
However, this is just a small part of the charm of Danyanghou. The locals are known for welcoming tourists to their community and they are never forced to leave once they have arrived.
