Zigui County, the birthplace of Chu Culture, is a place full of cultural breath, where many historical celebrities were born. Wang Zhaojun, one of the four beauties in the ancient China, and Qu Yuan, one of the most famous patriotic poets made Zigui County a famous place. In memory of the Chu culture and the celebrities, such architectures as the Qu Yuan Temple and the cenotaph have been built and such annual celebrations as Dragon Boat Racing and Folk Song Festival are held.

In addition to the strong cultural breath, the landscapes in Zigui County are charming and beautiful. The splendid Xiling Gorges, the steep but picturesque Kongling Gorges, the clear and peaceful Xiangxi Stream and the mysterious hanging coffins on the cliffs make a soaring number of people reluctant to leave. The local specialties, such as tea, orange and the Chinese chestnut are popular among the tourists who have ever been here.
