    • tourist information? maps? walking tours?

      by MonikaHaase Online Now Nov 9, 2014 at 7:16 AM

      Hi, I´ve been in Shenyang for a week (will be coming for short stays occasionally in the future) and have not been able to find a tourist information office. The two "offices" I found (Zhaoling tomb, Imperial Palace) did neither have english-speaking personnel nor apparently anything in the way of maps/brochures/advertisements or other information.
      I tried finding a bookstore not far from the Railway Station reportedly having a large selection of english books (hoping for a map of Shenyang) and again was out of luck (they may have moved?).
      I have checked the internet.
      I´m running out of ideas: How can I find a decent map of Shenyang? Is there any tour-operator doing guided tours of Shenyang or attractions in the surrounding area.
      Any help appreciated!

    • Tasty and Clean Food Near Zheng Xie Hotel/ Liaoning University of Traditional Chinese Medicine

      I'll be staying at the Zheng Xie Hotel while studying at the Liaoning University of Traditional Chinese Medicine for a month in April. If anyone knows of any good and clean safe eats around there I'd appreciate the recommendation. I was also wondering what a decent meal will cost you in Shenyang, nothing fancy just tasty and safe? Also what do people think is the best way to get around town? I'll appreciate any other information that you'd like to offer as well :)

    • A few questions from an American who just moved here..

      by KTMW Online Now Aug 26, 2006 at 7:48 PM

      1. Does Shenyang have some type of subway or railway system for getting around the city? If not, is it supposed to get one sometime in the future? When, if so?

      2. Is there anywhere on the north side of the city to buy "foreign" type groceries like block cheese (as opposed to the fake slice cheese found in all the grocery stores) or tortilla shells or anything like that?

      3. Is there anywhere in Shenyang to find Mexican food either in a restaurant or grocery store?

      Please answer even if you can only answer one of the questions! I appreciate any help!
