Hello. I'm from Germany and I am going to visit Shenyang in one week.
I want to visit Dandong and I have a few questions. What is the best way to get there? Train or bus? Also, we want to visit the Hushan Great Wall in Dandong. I have read that you can go there with an taxi, but are there any taxis when we want to go back to the city?
Thank you for your answers, Lena

1. From SY to Dandong, it's suggested to take direct train from Main Railway Station. It takes 5 to 6 hours on the way. The ticket fare of soft sleeper is about CNY140 and hard sleeper is about CNY95.

2. Yes, you can go to the scenic area by taking a taxi. And there still have several taxies or private cars that can send you back as long as it's not too late. Do negotiate a flat rate before boarding a car in case of being ovecharged.

Dear Lina. The canteen in the university offers Halal food in Chinese style and the price is low. Except that, it seems not easy to find Halal dining near the campus.

As for shopping, I know two nearby:
one is Buyang Commercial Plaza on the Southg Street, Daoyi Development Zone, Shenbei New Area, around 1km away, and the other is Fu Rui Jia Shopping Mall, at no. 3, Zhengyi 4th Road, Daoyi South Street, 1.5-1.6km away.

Well, as far as I know, most prices of books in the city are reasonable and acceptable. And it's not difficult for you to find good furniture. There are several furniture malls in the city. Some of them provide delivery service. So don't worry.

The living environment of the university is comfortable and nice. Just enjoy your college life. Most students are friendly and out-going. I think that you can easily get along with them.
In addition, the university has high reputation in China. It's a comprehensive one covering many categories.
