UNESCO's selection of Fuzhou to host the 44th Session of the World Heritage Committee in July is yet more evidence that the southeastern coastal city is excelling in preserving its past.

Fuzhou, which is the capital of Fujian Province, was once a leading silk producer along the ancient Maritime Silk Road. A multi-billion-yuan, city-wide project has ensured its historical buildings, including ancient shipyards, temples and residential compounds, will not be lost to history.

Known as gucuo in the local dialect, these traditional buildings have been given a new life, drawing legions of tourists each year.
