gets its name for being located in the west of Taihang Mountains. Its unique
natural geographical conditions gestate magnificent scenery of Shanxi. The
Yellow River ranked as the second-longest river in China, flows through 4
cities and 19 counties in Shanxi Province, forming the Hukou Waterfall, Qiankun
Bay, Laoniu Bay, and other spectacular scenery. The beautiful landscape along
the Taihang Mountains, represented by Hengshan Mountain, Taihang Grand Canyon,

known as one of the cradles of Chinese civilization and one of the major
provinces of Chinese culture, has left us numerous scenic spots, historical
sites, and cultural treasures in the long history of thousands of years. The
stories of Yao, Shun and Yu and their historical sites and remains have proven
that it was the first place called "China". Mount Wutai, the holy
land of Buddhism, Pingyao Ancient City, and the Yungang Grottoes, one of the
greatest ancient stone carving art treasure houses, are World Heritage Sites in
Shanxi. The Great Wall, as the most recognizable cultural symbol of China,
stretches 8,851 km (5500.3 mi), with 3,500 km (2175 mi) of that run across
Shanxi Province. What's more, intangible cultural heritages and food feasts throughout
Shanxi make its cultural tourism brand image richer and livelier.
We do believe
that the Culture and Tourism Department of Shanxi Province will bring Shanxi's
ancient Chinese civilizations and beautiful scenery to people from home and
abroad with impressive results at the mart.
