The direct translation for “Qinhuangdao” City is “The island for the Chinese Emperor”. As its name explains itself, Qinhuangdao is known as one of the most comfortable cities to live in China. Qinhungdao is a port city in northeastern Hebei province of North China. It is about 300 km east of Beijing, on the Bohai Sea, the innermost gulf of the Yellow Sea.
Qinhuangdao, a beautiful coastal resort, has a great reputation for the perfect, natural, all-weather Port of Qinhuangdao, distinguished and historical Shanhaiguan Pass and the ever stunning summer holiday resort, Beidaihe. It has abundant tourist resources, including forests, rivers, lakes, springs, beaches, harbors, temples, gardens, villas, and ancient passes through its mountains. However, the Great Wall and the seashore must be the first temptations for most visitors to Qinhuangdao. Along the seashore, stretching from the northeast to the southwest, there are five popular tourist zones: Shanhaiguan District, Haigang District (Harbor District), Beidaihe Scenic Spot, Nandaihe Tourist Resort and the Golden Coast.
Qinhuangdao has many of things to see and places to visit. Most visitors who come tend to spend their best time at the beaches. Day trips to Shanhaiguan (the start of the Greatwall ) and Beidaihe (Birdnest Hill) are hassle free and definitely worth doing. The city has a wide selection of entertainment options, but mostly are dedicated to nightlife and dining.
The Qinhuangdao Economic & Technology Development Zone was approved by the State Council in 1984 to become one of China’s first state-level economic and technological development zones. Qinhuangdao is located in the heart of the rapidly-growing “Bohai-Rim Economic Circle”, within easy reach of both Beijing (280 km) and Tianjin (245 km) Qinhuangdao Port is a strategically important port on China and is the largest coal shipping port in the country, much of which is shipped to power plants elsewhere in China. With recent expansion, its capacity has reached 209 million metric tons.
Ok, if you can’t remember all of these information about Qinhungdao, then at least you should remember two things: Qinhungdao is the start of the Chinese Greatwall and the city for the Chinese Emperors.
