Located east of Jingdezhen in Jiangxi Province, Wuyuan County is home to many small villages scattered amongst the streams and forested hills. In early spring, the fields and hillside terraces of Wuyuan County turn totally yellow with blooming rapeseed flowers, adding to the already serene and pastoral beauty of the area.
