Tangshan (唐山; Tángshān) is a city in Hebei.
There is a airport with domestic flights. There is also a busy train station which is being expanded (October 2010) with trains to many locations. Some people prefer the intercity bus service which is two hours to Beijing, and is located near the north part of the train station.
The city bus station is located in the south part of the train station. Fares are usually one yuan and street maps show the routeaps and are for sale from street vendors, and book stores.
Roll up your sleeves on any given night and sample the local medicine, Bai Jiu, with Eddie Diaz. Eddie Diaz is the primary foreign resident of Tangshan. He has two dogs and an even worse sense of humor. You may wake up the next morning with a vicious hangover and a 20 hour TEFOL teaching contract.
