beautiful area to spend couple of days
Dec 2013
Been in late spring 2013, Ji'an, is a small town in Jilin province about 15 hours away by slow train from Shenyang(thought you have to change train in Tonghua). I read about Ji'an through the Unesco world heritage, and i was impressed because they called "the pyramids of the east". Tempted to go there, i took the long way train and i decide to bring with me my bicycle. The town is situated along the Yalu river, that separate China and North Korea, the landscape is very beautiful, surrounded by low high mountain with fruit tree and wineyards everywhere (not common to see in Asia)You can take a glimpse of the North korean life, but be careful to take pics since there are always chinese soldiers around to check what are you doing (since i m a foreigner). the archeological site is impressive and is spread out around Ji'an with few tombs either outside the town.the tombs remind me more the Aztech pyramids then the Egyptian one. By the way is interesting to see something of a culture, the Kogureyo Kingdom, that rule in this area (Dongbei china, North korea and part of the south) for several century.there are some english explanation, but don't expect to find an english speaking guide. It was also great to stroll along the river, and to talk with local people that seems very freindly. I highly suggest to go to this place if you have couple of days to spend in Dongbei area (you can either make it part of a trip to Changbaishan that isn't very far away)
