Travel Recommendation: Day Trip to Dandong
Many of you have probably visited the city of Dandong, south of Shenyang in Liaoning Province. It is the largest Chinese border city, bordering Sinuiju (Xinyizhou in Chinese) in North Korea. Its strategic location means that Dandong has had a very exciting history, and is still able to fulfill its role as a major trade port and natural resource hub. A lot of the trade that runs through this city is North Korea bound, and that is also one of Dandong’s main attractions.
In Dandong, you can visit the Hushan section of the Great Wall, and see the famed Friendship bridge between China and North Korea. For more about this border city, click here: http://www.echinacities.com/Shenyang/city-guide/From-Shenyang-to-Dandong-Getting-a-Glimpse-at-North-Korea

A First-Timer’s Guide to Shenyang, China
Shenyang, the biggest city in northeast China, is largely off the radar of the typical tourist in favor of glitzier cities like Beijing, Shanghai, or Hong Kong. But that’s a mistake: this provincial capital packs a ton of history and tradition, with plenty of museums and UNESCO heritage sites to occupy your days and a good selection of restaurants and bars for your nights. In more recent history, the city was the site of some of the 2008 Olympic soccer matches, and because of its location and transportation options, it can be a key stopover point on your way to visit the rest of northern China.

Blog Coordinator Needed - Fall 2015
Volunteers Needed: In 2010, this blog was founded by a small group of fantastic and dedicated expats in Shenyang. For more than 18 months, this blog has been staffed by one person with the help of a few other contributors. Unfortunately, the posts will end later this summer if we cannot find volunteers willing to take over. Yes, it takes time. It requires making contacts, researching, and posting approximately 240 times during the year. If you are willing to give 30-60 minutes a week to make this happen, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your consideration.
