Yangquan Travel Tips

Physical Features: The city is situated on the eastern edge of the Loess Plateau in the mountainous area of eastern Shanxi.

The terrain of the city slopes downward from the west to the east with the mountains as its main part of the land.


Yangquan is a time-honored city and gains its name for the five bubbling springs of former days in the downtown city.

Historically, it was always a strategic point that commenced construction as a military fortress as early as in the late Warring States Period (476BC-221BC).

In the Tang Dynasty (618-907), Yangquan was exalted to a prefecture. By 1905, it had a train station to facilitate the exploitation of the mines, making the city one of the birthplaces of Shanxi's modern industry.
