Welcome to Ji'an
For Korean history buffs – or anyone interested in ancient dynasties – Ji'an (集安, Jí’ān) is a must-visit small town. Wrapped around by the Yalu River, it was once part of the Koguryo (高句丽, Gāogōulì) kingdom, a Korean dynasty that ruled areas of northern China and the Korean peninsula from 37 BC to AD 668. Ji'an’s extensive Koguryo pyramids, ruins and tombs resulted in Unesco designating it a World Heritage Site in 2004. Archaeologists have unearthed remains of three cities plus some 40 tombs around Ji'an and the town of Huanren (in Liaoning province).
