Jiande(建德, literally means Establishing the Morality) is an important tourist destination for holidays. Lots of the unknown ancient villages like Xinye Village hide themselves in the mountains. It is an ideal summer resort, because Hangzhou has been another stove city. Jiande located in the west part of Zhejiang province, the upper stream of Qiantang River, and under the administration of Municipality Hangzhou. It is a travel hub of west Zhejiang province and also a transportation hub at that region. It is only 108 kilometers away from the downtown Hangzhou, and 258 kilometers away from Shanghai.

Jiangde is an important part of the national key scenic area comprised of Fuchun River, Xinan River and Qiandao Lake. The total area of Jiande is over 2,321 square kilometers. Xinan River is the mother river of Jiande, and annually keeps a stable temperature of 17 Celsius degrees, which is a nice resort during the summertime. Xinan River Hydropower Station is China’s first self-built waterpower plant since 1949. Thanks to the reservoir of the Xinan River, there is a famous company established – Nongfu Spring.

Jiande has a long history. It was administrated in Yangzhou, one of nine states in China, in the period of west Zhou Dynasty. In the period of spring and autumn, it belonged to Yue State. In 344 BC, it was occupied by Chu State after Chu defeated Yue. In 221 BC, it was in Qin Dynasty, exactly under the administration of Fuchun County, Kuaiji Prefecture, one of 36 prefectures in China at the time.

In the later period of Northern Song Dynasty, the peasant uprising of Fang La was suppressed. Emperor Huizong changed Muzhou to Yanzhou to express his personal penalty to this region. Since Southern Song Dynasty moved the capital to Hangzhou, Jiande became the important western barrier, and accepted as one of three subsidiary cities around the capital, and directly administrated by the Emperors. In 1265, Yanzhou changed to be Jiande Prefecture. In 1949, it was established to be a special region of administration. In 1950, it belonged to Jinhua. In 1957, Xinanjiang Hydropower Station was established. In 1963, it was administrated in Hangzhou. In 1992, It was upgraded to be a county-level city, and the governmental office is located at Xinanjiang Town.
