Shenyang, one of China's most famous industrial cities, is the capital of Liaoning Province. Shenyang enjoys a relative diverse landscape - the west is mainly plains while the northeast and southeast are mainly hilly. Over the years, Shenyang has built up an all inclusive comprehensive industrial system that encompasses the production of metallurgy, light industry and textiles, building materials, electronics, foodstuff etc. The city is also a key point in the distribution of goods in Northeast China, as well as a major communication hub for Liaoning Province.

Shenyang is a well-known historical and cultural city in China and is one of the earliest cities to be named as a travel city. When compared to nearby Dalian and Qingdao with their tourism mandates and accompanying infrastructure, travel industry in Shenyang plays second fiddle to industry.

Today, visitors can take a travel of historical and cultural sites, such as the Imperial Palace, Baocheng in Crescent Moon Shape, Shisheng Temple and Liaobin Pagoda etc.

Shengjing Ancient Cultural Street is a must-see for travelers. Liaoning Provincial Museum is also worth a look for its massive collection of art.
