==Understand==
 
An industrial city on the western shores of Liaoning Gulf, Jinzhou is visited mainly for its storehouse of Jurassic period fossils.
 
 
 
==Get in==
 
Take either the three-hour express train from Beijing or the six-hour regular train.  A car drive is also six hours from [[Beijing]] via the eastbound Jingshen Expressway.  From [[Shenyang]], a bus ride takes three hours via the westbound Jingshen Expressway.
 
 
 
==Get around==
 
 
 
==See==
 
* <see name="Wenya Museum" alt="文雅博物馆; Wényǎbówùguǎn" address="" directions="" phone="" email="" fax="" url="" hours="" price="">Set up by the amateur collector Du Wenya, this museum houses an impressive collection of fossils found in the local region, some fossils having been found nowhere else.</see>
 
 
 
* <see name="Bijia Mountain" alt="笔架山; Bǐjiàshān" address="" directions="30 min S of Jinzhou" phone="" email="" fax="" url="" hours="" price="">Connects to the mainland via an isthmus at low tide and is more of a big hill than a mountain.  There are numerous small Buddha temples on the hill and vendors selling various souvenirs and snacks.  Is well worth the trip.  If you have the time, take a boat out to the hill, walk around for several hours visiting the temples, and then walk on the land bridge back to shore when low tide comes.</see>
 
 
 
*<see name="Guta Park" alt="古塔公园; Gǔtǎgōngyuán" address="" directions="" phone="" url="" hours="" price="" lat="" long="">A quiet park in the south eastern part of the city featuring the Guangji Pagoda. The 72 m (236 ft) tower is a beautiful Liao style pagoda, with thirteen levels in an octagonal shape.</see>
