    As the birthplace of the Qing Dynasty, you are sure to find some wonderful historic sites in Shenyang, such as the Imperial Palace – the only royal palace outside Beijing – or the Northern tomb – a sepulchre to the Qing Dynasty’s first emperor, located among the pine tree forest of Beiling Park. The city grew and expanded around these and more historical places over the centuries, making Shenyang a fusion city of both ancient and modern, where religious temples are neighbours to shopping malls. Our concierge is happy to offer insight on Shenyang’s historic highlights or arrange guided tours for you.
