The city is located o­n the North Jiangsu Plain, with a highest elevation of 71 m over the sea level and the elowest 2.8 m o­nly. The elevation gradually reduces from northwest to southeast. The land occupies three fourths of the total area of the city and the water surface area is close to o­ne third. There are two freshwater lakes in Suqian, Lake Hongze, which is o­ne of the four largest lakes in China, and Lake Luoma. Four rivers run through the city, including the the Grand Canal, Huaihe River, Yihe River and Suhe River.
The most important natural resource for Suqian is water which is from its lakes and rivers. Others include rock salt, crude oil and natural gas. The lakes, Hongze and Luoma, are under well protected from contaminating. Other resources include minerals of quartz, phosphorus, cooper, iron, etc.
The city is located in a temperate zone with an oceanic monsoon climate with four distinct seasons. Annual average temperature is 17°C and annual average precipitation is 910 mm, less than its eastern and southern neighbor jurisdictions.
Suqian is a city with a cutural history of 2,500 years but the earliest use of the name started in 762 A.D., Tang Dynasty. In the late century, this prefecture jurisdiction and the name were changed or abandoned many times upon the replacement of dynasties. Again during the Republic of China in 1945, Suqian was restored as a county but the jurisdiction differed. The current jurisdiction as a prefecture city started in 1996. The archaeological findings in 1954 in the Town of Shuanggou brought the human history of the area back to the New Stone Age, 40,000-50,000 years ago. There are numerous historical or cultural relics left since then from the ancient dynasties.
The city is well-known for its alcoholic products, tracking back to the Ming Dynasty, which have won many national and international medals. Two famed brands of liquors, Yanghe and Shuanggou, are o­n the top among their popularity. It is never forgotten for its national reputation as a “Flower Town in China”, awarded to Shuyang City, under the jurisdiction of Suqian.
When two English teachers from England arrived at the town in 1990s to voluntarily teach English in a local middle school, Charlie and Chris described Suqian as a developing city in any sense of the word. Years later, the city has dramatically developed into a new industrial shape and a tourist center.
