Longyan (simplified Chinese: 龙岩; traditional Chinese: 龍巖; pinyin: About this soundLóngyán; Pe̍h-ōe-jī: Lêng-nâ or Liong-nâ; literally: ‘dragon rock’; Hakka: Liùng-ngàm) is a prefecture-level city in southwestern Fujian province, People’s Republic of China, bordering Guangdong to the south and Jiangxi to the west.

Longyan is situated in the upper reaches of the Jiulong and Ting Rivers. It borders the prefecture-level cities of Sanming to the north, Quanzhou to the east, Zhangzhou to the southeast, Meizhou (Guangdong) to the southwest, and Ganzhou (Jiangxi) to the west and northwest.

Longyan has a monsoon-influenced humid subtropical climate (Köppen climate classification Cfa), with short, mild winters, and long, hot and humid summers. Despite its inland location, the city’s summers rank among the mildest in the province, averaging lower than even Xiamen and the islands of Pingtan County, both of which receive significant maritime moderation.[7] Rainfall is greatest in spring and early summer and at its least in autumn and early winter.
