Jilin Province, or “Ji” accounts for two percent of the total national territory. Jilin sits at the geometric center of Northeast Asia which consists of Japan, Russia, North Korea, South Korea, Mongolia and Northeast China. Its capital city is Changchun.
With the Tumen River and Yalu River as its boundary on the southeast, Jilin Province faces the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea across these rivers. Jilin was the cradle of China’s film industry many decades ago. Today, the Changchun Film Studio and Film City is left as an important relic for visitors to explore and enjoy during their film culture tour.
Jilin was the earliest and biggest auto production and research base in the country decades ago and now still exerts significant influence over China’s auto industry. Recently, the Jingyue Pool Tourism Economic Development Area and China FAW Group Corporation have decided to jointly build an auto museum and one auto-themed multifunctional park integrating auto exhibition, auto publicity, and auto entertainment programs. China FAW Group Corporation went further by opening part of its auto assembly line to the public as a demonstration site for a national industry tour.
Jilin is also home to many famous scenic spots like Changbai Mountain – which is one of the top ten mountains in China and the Number 1 Mountain in Northeast China, Jilin Hard Rime, Songhua Lake, Jilin North Mountain Temple Complex, Museum of the Imperial Palace of the Manchu State, Jilin Guanma Karst Cave, and more.
