Shijiazhuang is in the heart of northern China and just a short distance from Beijing, Xi'an and Qingdao. The city centre is rapidly growing while the surrounding area offers mountains, Buddhist temples and fabulous scenery. The ancient walled city of Pingyao and the sacred Mount Tai are just a short and cheap train journey away. Mount Cangyan is famous for its appearance in the movie "Hidden Tiger Leaping Dragon".
