(China Then & Now) Revisiting Yanan
BEIJING, July 10 (Xinhua) -- Yan'an, located in northwest China's Shaanxi Province, is a former revolutionary base of the Communist Party of China (CPC).
It hosted the then headquarters of the CPC and was the center of the Communist revolution from 1935 to 1948.
There, the CPC-led revolutionary cause transited from its low tide to high tide.
The shrine for China's revolution has continued to undergo tremendous changes over the past decades.
In May 2019, Yan'an was officially taken off the list of impoverished areas.
It is no longer a remote fortress with rampant hunger or a barren land with poor harvests, but rather an up-and-coming city where passionate locals hold dreams of chasing prosperity.
