Wuhu City is located in the southeast of Anhui Province, on the south bank of the lower reaches of the Yangtze River. It is 119 kilometers (74 miles) from the capital city of the province, Hefei. It neighbors Jianghuai Plain to the north and the mountainous area of south Anhui. The Yangtze River crosses the city from southwest to northeast.

The city stands on the alluvial plain of the middle and lower reaches of the Yangtze River and is comprised of floodplains, terraces, and low hills. The predominant geographical feature of the area is alluvial plain, and because of its plentiful supply of water the town has always been considered a production center for both fish and rice.

The great poet Li Bai spent his late life in Wuhu, it is said, due to its striking landscape. Li Bai was born in a Central Asian town and raised in the southwestern China. Xie Tiao, one of the most distinctive Six Dynasty poets whom he greatly admired, left many poems when holding positions here.

Wuhu and Anqing are noted centers of the Yanjiang cuisine. It specializes in freshwater fish and poultry, and features special techniques of chopping, shaping, and colouring. The flavour of Yanjiang dishes is often enhanced by sweetening and smoking.
