Introducing Shíjiāzhuāng

Thoroughly eclipsed by the larger cities of Běijīng and Tiānjīn, Shíjiāzhuāng is a definitive provincial capital: it’s a bustling, modern sprawl with little on offer culturally apart from a museum. It is a good departure point for exploring southern Héběi though, and the sights nearby – including historic Zhèngdìng and rural Yújiācūn – are interesting enough to warrant the short trip down from Běijīng.
