Give Shenyang a Chance
Of course I would seem out of character if I didn't say shopping! But overall I found this city had a lot of personality....coming from someone who is self-admittedly a little shallow! Bargains aside, I loved seeing the "Da Bai Cai" or Chinese Cabbages everywhere. I enjoyed walking through the park and being invited to watch mahjong games or older people wanting to play with my daughter. Living in Bejing makes you forget that most of China is not so cosmopolitan. It was a refreshing change of pace and enjoyed my time there very much. I've been to at least 40 cities in China and found that Shenyang was a pleasant surprise.
Qian Shan (One Thousand Lotus Mountain) is in the outskirts of Anshan (we have included it in our Shenyang Page because we have run out of space in the Anshan page).
It is a beautiful mountain, full of temples, stairs and cable cars.
It does not make sense to visit it when everybody else does it, as it gets extremely crowded.
We went there on a very cold November morning. And we had it all for ourselves. Nice!!!
How to get there: from the short-distance bus station in Anshan (to the left as you leave the Train Station, or across the main square if you arrived at the main bus station) take minibus number 8 for a couple of Yuan. No need to get there by taxi.
