Shanxi Province, located in North China, is famous for its long history and rich culture. The Buddhist resort Wutai Mountain, the exquisite Yungang Grottoes, the spectacular Hukou Waterfall and the legendary Pingyao Ancient City attract millions of tourists every year. Their mature vinegar is well-known at home and abroad. After the founding of New China, as a resource province, Shanxi's coal industry once lit half of the lights in China and was hailed as the backbone of the development of New China.
