Meizhou Tourism Bureau actively builds the “World Hakka Capital • Longevity Meizhou” tourism brand, because Meizhou is the world's Hakka capital, and is the most representative Hakka settlement in the world. It has a long history and has a profound humanistic accumulation of thousands of Hakkas.
The last stop of the Hakka people's move to the south is also the main starting point for the Hakka people to spread the four seas since the Ming and Qing dynasties. At the same time, Meizhou is also the hometown of longevity. The Jiaoling County under its jurisdiction is the “longevity township of the world”. Meixian, Fengshun, Jiaoling and Taipu are “the hometown of longevity in China”. Meizhou is a selenium-rich soil area, which is 1.75 times the national standard medium selenium-rich 0.4 mg/kg soil. “Longevity Meizhou” is worthy of its name.
