Despite having a bevy of talking points – it's one of only four Ming dynasty cities to retain its complete outer walls, it has the oldest surviving temple in all of northeastern China and it's an up-and-coming beach resort – Xīngchéng (兴城) has stayed well off most travellers' radars. Yes, it’s still a bit dusty and rough round the edges, but conditions are improving and historians and aficionados will have a field day here.
