Zhouzhi County

Zhouzhi (simplified Chinese: 周至; traditional Chinese: 盩厔; pinyin: Zhōuzhì) is a county under the administration of Xi'an, the capital of Shaanxi province, China. It is the most spacious but least densely populated county-level division of Xi'an, and also contains the city's southernmost and westernmost points. The county borders the prefecture-level cities of Xianyang to the north, Ankang to the southeast, Hanzhong to the southwest, and Baoji to the west, as well as Xi'an's Hu County to the east. It is famous for kiwifruit, one type of produce in which Shaanxi province excels.[citation needed]
