Minnan, Southern Fujian or Minnan Golden Triangle (simplified Chinese: ; traditional Chinese: ; pinyin: M?nnán j?ns?nji?o; Pe?h-?e-j?: Bân-lâm kim-sa?-kak), refers to the coastal region in Southern Fujian Province, China, which includes the prefecture-level cities of Xiamen, Quanzhou and Zhangzhou.[1] The region accounts for 40 percent of the GDP of Fujian Province.[2] It is the native homeland of the Hokkien people who speak the Hokkien language or Minnan language, a variety of Southern Min.[3]

G. William Skinner used the term Zhang-Quan (?) to describe the region in his physiographic macroregions of China.
