that's the most simple government building i have seen in liaoning sheng. it is a 1970s building with a slogan painted on the wall, "long live people's republic of china, love live the union of world people."
Wunushan Milan Winery Company Limited. A surprise find near Huanren. A spotlessly clean installation with a guided tour in Chinese (although there are a few signs in English) and of course, the possibility to taste the wine. Ok, so China isn't well known for its wine, generally preferring very sweet 'grape juice' or baijiu... but there are a couple of dry red wines made here. There's also wines made from haws! I'm no expert, but it's interesting enough to wander around and taste what's on offer.
Actually I didn't go rafting on the river, but it looks great fun. It's not serious white water rafting, just a couple of people in a dingy. The ride is reasonably long and the scenery is beautiful. Rafting costs 50RMB.
You can go just to look around, which is free.
Be careful though, although you can buses out to the destination from Huanren (it's only 33kms but it took nearly 3 hours on the local, stop everywhere, bus) it's almost impossible to get a bus back. I had to try and hitch a ride (succeeded fortunately) as I had a 4pm bus to catch back in Huanren. Mostly only huge tour groups go there.
In Huanren, the most popular food is fish which was fished in neighborhood reservoirs. The fish here is fresh and delicious. Any small resturant can cook very tastful fish dish.
Favorite Dish: bian hua fish, a kind of famous jiang fish specially fished in huanren
