This chapter focuses on Huangzhou after Su Shi's departure. It argues that, just as Su Shi's exile had a great impact on the poet, statesman, and thinker, his sojourn in this culturally and economically backward prefecture transformed its image and identity, and put the locality on the cultural map of the country. Huangzhou remained a prime spot on the itineraries of elite travelers in the Southern Song. As they paid homage to Su Shi's legacy, Song men immortalized the fame of Red Cliff (Chibi), East Slope (Dongpo), and Snow Hall (Xuetang), landmarks associated with Su Shi's presence in Huangzhou. These writings found their way into the local gazetteer and permanently established the locality as a first-rate cultural site.

Keywords:   Huangzhou, Su Shi, Southern Song, Su Shi's legacy, cultural sites
