Thanks in advance.
However, Yueyawan Bathing resort, Wang'er Hill, Xianrendao Forest Park and Water Fairyland are worth to see.
About the transportation, taking a taxi or hiring a private car is a good choice for you due to the not-so-convenient transportation.
I would like to go to Bayuquan Yingkou Liaoning. Can someone tell me how to go from Beijing airport? I would prefer air route, but if not possible I dont mind taking a train.
Many thanks for your kind guidance. Someone suggested that I land at Dalian airport and take a car. Do you think it is a good idea?
