Liaoning Introduction

Liaoning is a northeastern province of the People's Republic of China. Its o­ne-character abbreviation is Liao.
"Liáo" is an ancient name for this region, which was adopted by the Liao Dynasty (Khitan Empire) which ruled this area between 907 and 1125"Níng" means "peacefulness". The modern province was established in 1907 as Fengtian province and the name was changed to Liaoning in 1929. Under the Japanese puppet Manchukuo regime, the province reverted to its old name, but the name Liaoning was restored in 1945.
Liaoning is located in the southern part of China's Northeast. Liaoning borders the Yellow Sea (Korea Bay) and the Bohai Gulf in the south, North Korea in the southeast, Jilin Province to the northeast, Hebei Province to the west, and Inner Mongolia to the northwest.
The Yalu River marks the border between North Korea and the Chinese provinces of Jilin and Liaoning. It empties into the Korea Bay between Dandong (Liaoning) and Sinŭiju (North Korea).

Liaoning Traffic

As a base of heavy industry in China, Liaoning has the most comprehensive and dense railway network of all provinces. It also has an extended highway connection, two international civil airports and the large Dalian sea port.
By plane: The Shenyang Taoxian International Airport has flights to Beijing, Chengdu, Harbin, Changchun, Dalian, Shanghai and Shenzhen, as well as international flights to Hongkong, Irkutsk, Osaka, Pyongyang, and Seoul. Dalian also has regular flights to and from cities in Japan and South Korea, as well as domestic destinations, such as Beijing, Guangzhou and Shanghai.
By railway: Major railways pass Liaoning province including the Beijing-Harbin Line, Shenyang-Dalian Line, Shenyang-Jilin Line and Shenyang-Dandong Line. Shenyang is conveniently a railroad junction with many direct trains to and from most major cities, while Dalian is not as easily reachable from the south as it is set at the southern tip of the Liaoning Peninsula.
By road: Road transport is an alternative means of travel for short distances - for long routes the roads might not be good enough. The Shenyang-Dalian, Beijing-Shenyang, Shenyang-Fushun and Shenyang-Dandong (under construction) form the major provincial road network in Liaoning.
By water: Passenger boats connect Dalian port with several coastal cities in China, such as Weihai and Yantai in Shandong Province, Qinhuangdao or Shanghai.
Taxi: The basic charge is 5 RMB within 3 kilometers, and the exceeding is 1.5 RMB per kilometer.
