China - Liaoning (Chapter)
This is the Liáoníng chapter from Lonely Planet’s China guidebook.
History and hedonism run side by side in Liáoníng. Walled Ming-dynasty cities rub up against booming beach resorts, while imperial palaces sit in the centre of bustling modern cities. Nothing quite captures the fun and distinction, however, as much as seaside Dàlián with its golden coastline and summer beer festival, and former battlegrounds where Russian and Japanese armies wrestled for control of the region in the early 20th century.
- relax in Dàlián and enjoy the beaches and coastal walkways
- explore the easternmost stretch of the Great Wall at Tiger Mountain Great Wall, near Dāndōng
- visit the tomb of Huang Taiji, founder of the Qing Dynasty, in Shěnyáng
- restaurants & accommodation
Coverage includes: Shěnyáng, Dàlián & around, Dāndōng, and Xīngchéng.
