as far as i know, it is the best well-preserved old railway station in china, which has not been rebuilt by new material and keep the original look when it was built in 1937. it has been the terminal station from baicheng, jilin province. now, it will go further northward to yimin.
it is a beautiful japanese style building. when i got there, the sunset light just painted on the yellow wall and make it a golden palace.
it is a cool spring 5 miles away from the town of arxan. i saw a lots of lorry drivers take plastic tanks to collect sweet water. mineral water is the main resource in this mountain resort, also the spa is famous to attract thousands of visitors to enjoy.
it is very cold when i arrived arxan. it means i need heat. yes, i find a boiling pot resturant under the hotel. i ate lamb, beef and especially local mushroom. i order two kinds of them, yellow one and grey one. they are very delicous, better than meat.
i m so pleased to see these signs, which tells only 33 km, half an hour, we will arrive the destination, arxan. it is also the border signs of hunlun beier and xing an meng. we got here to finish the trip on grass land and start to enter the mountains.
