About Daye

Daye is a city of eastern Hubei province, People's Republic of China. Administratively, it is a county-level city of Huangshi City. Before the adoption of the Hanyu Pinyin, the name of the city was often transcribed in English as Tayeh. As it is usually the case with county-level cities, Daye includes both an urban core and a fair amount of rural land in all directions, with smaller townships (zhen) such as Dajipu. According to the Fifth Population Census of China (2000), the entire county-level city of Daye had 813,600 residents, with a population density of 558 people per square kilometer. The city is served by the China National Highway 106 (which coincides in this area with China National Highway 316) and a railway. There are no passenger train stations in Daye, however; passengers must board at the Huansghi station, near Huangshi center city.
