How to Get to Fuxin

1. Before the Shenyang-Zhangwu Highway was completed, it took approximately three hours to travel from Shenyang to Fuxin.  However, about one hour is sufficient now. The highway greatly shortens the distance between the two cities, and it is more accessible for visitors who rely on the Shenyang Taoxian International Airport.

The city has a temperate continental monsoon climate, featuring abundant sunshine and four distinct seasons. It is windy in spring, and the temperatures fluctuate greatly. The Fuxin weather in summer is rainy and overcast, which help create high temperatures and high relative humidity. Massive bursts of precipitation become more common during mid-July to mid-August. Affected by the monsoon from Siberia, the winter of Fuxin is chilly, but the sky is clear. Spring and autumn are wonderful times for a visit.
