It was once a centre for migration, and during the Five Dynasties and Ten Kingdoms period, it was home to the Ma Chu independent regime. The economy is almost entirely dependant on the production of rice. However, the region is known for having remarkably skilled artists and craftsmen. Countless Keshans have created embroidered silks, carved jade, and works worthy of international acclaim. The cuisine is famed for their use of chilli peppers.
