"Fushun a Coal Mining Town" Fushun by urban4est
Fushun Travel Guide: 20 reviews and 46 photos
I spent one day in Fushun. I had heard about the amber carvings made and sold there and hoped to find something interesting. The day proved to be very interesting indeed.
We took a taxi from Shenyang. The first shop was below a bridge. When I got out of the car over a dozen coal miners crowded to a rail to watch me. They were covered in coal.
As you can see the shop was filled to the door with lovely jade items from Xiuyan. You can even see a goldfish swimming in the jade fish bowl to the right.
I climbed the pedestrian overpass to take this picture. This is a main street in Fushun along which were several small shops selling jet and amber carvings.
As I came down to the sidewalk a man driving a donkey pulled cart passed by.
At this intersection you can see the means of transit used in Fushun. Here are bicycles, cars, buses and even donkey carts. The donkey serves northern China like the Water Buffalo does the south. Everything from burden to food.
- Pros:Unique Jade and Amber carvings as well as a great Korean restaurant
- Cons:heavy industrial pollution
- In a nutshell:An interesting experience
