I love the tranquil and wooden cottage feel of this town. People in Shiwei all have Russian blood, and some look like one too.

a little too touristy but good overall, very interesting mix of China and Russian that you won't see anywhere else, I went in the fall so town was cold and quiet, nice horse ride around the river, would love to go back in the summer time.

great food, the russian/chinese mix of shops and restaurants gives the town a special feel. There is a small souvenir shop near the bridge that has a surprisingly good variety of souvenirs at very reasonable prices. I love the town.
