Nan'an is a county-level city of the southern Fujian Province, which used to be an important cultural and economic place for this region.
As all agglomeration of this level, Nan'an is not a proper city but a large area composed of towns, villages and farmlands.
Renowned places and people from Nan'an are therefore possibly from different villages or areas. For instance, in a village called Shuitou was what used to be one of the longest bridges in the world, the Anping Bridge.
Another remarkable place in Nan'an is in a village called Kangdian, the tomb of China's national hero Zheng Chenggong.
