-Travel to Shijiazhuang

Shijiazhuang, the capital of Hebei, is one of the few places in China where the intention to rebuild everything from scratch in only 20 years is actually improving the city. Shijiazhuang is an accident arising from the crossing of major north-south and east-west railway lines. The city enjoys a semi-moist warm temperate climate, with an average temperature of 12.9 degrees Celsius and an annual precipitation of 550 mm. It's grown from village to provincial capital in 100 years. In terms of agriculture, the city is most known for wheat, corn, cotton, meat, and fruits.

Known as the "Nation Capital's Suburbs" in ancient times, Shijiazhuang boosts 114 towns, 108 villages, and 43 sub-districts. Even that status is a hand-me-down from Tianjin, after the metropolis gained the right to report directly to Beijing rather than through the provincial government. So there's little of glamour here. The city enjoys highly sophisticated transportation links and is sometimes called the "gate from south to north and the throat from Hebei to Shanxi".
