Heshun is 3 kilometers away from Tongchong Town in the southwest. The title of the township derives from a verse describing "the rising clouds that herald auspicious future and the gentle breeze that brings peace and harmony." Heshun is famous homeplace of overseas Chinese. Since ancient times, it has been a place where"eight or nine out of ten people do business in Burma". The town consists of over 13,000 households and over 6,300 people. There are over 6,000 people who live abroad, almost as many as the people living in Heshun. They are in Europe, America Australia, Southeast Asia, etc. These overseas Chinese and their relatives make up 80% of the town's total population.
