Jinzhou Xiaolinzi Airport is a domestic airport that serves the city of Jinzhou, Liaoning province, in northeast China. Its main attractions are the Jurassic period fossils showcased in a museum, and the opportunity to reach and explore the Bijia mountain island via a natural zigzagging cobblestone causeway.
Wenya Museum - The museum was set up by amateur collector Du Wenya, and contains quite an impressive collection of fossils found within the vicinity of the local region. Some of the fossils are like no other found anywhere in the world.
Bijia Mountain - South of the coast of the Jinzhou region, situated in the Liaodong Bay of the Bohai Sea of China, is a small island mountain standing at the height of 78.3 metres and with an area of 1.2 km2. The name Bijia, which in Chinese translates to 'penholder', is derived from the penholder shape of the mountain. Chinese mythology says that Bijia Mountain is the place from with Pangu's Creation of the World took place. The top floor of Sanqing Pavilion, a stone building on the mountain, holds a shrine of Pangu, the God of Creation. The building also houses approximately 50 incredibly lifelike statues of the Buddha, Taoist, and Confucian saints. The only way to get to the island is by boat or via a 1,620-metre long and 9-metre wide stone path from the mainland to the island.
Guta Park - The park in the south-eastern part of the city is a great place for some peace and quiet, whether it be for mediation, morning rituals, exercise, or simply to be alone with your thoughts. The park features the Guangji Pagoda, an octagonal 72-metre tall tower with thirteen levels and built in Liao style architecture.
Yiwulü Mountain - The Lu Mountain is one of the Three Greatest Mountains of Northeast China, with its highest peak at 867 metres above sea level. The word "Yiwulü" means "full of green" in Manchu language. Apart from great scenery that's 'full of green', the mountain also has Taoist temples that were reconstructed in the Liao and Jin periods.
