In The Travels of Marco Polo, Marco Polo, the famous Italian traveler on the Silk Road, mentioned that Citong City 刺桐城 (or: City of Erythrina, today called Quanzhou) was once one of the world's biggest ports. In Southeast Asia in the Five Dynasties and Ten Kingdoms Period, citong, or the erythrina that bear fiery red flowers every spring, were cultivated widely in the region to a circumference of ten kilometers, hence the nickname "Citong City" was born.
