Simple pleasures await you in Tai’an. Located in the centre of China’s Shandong Province, along the Yellow River, Tai’an is surrounded by mountains and lakes, and dates back some 5,000 years. Four Points by Sheraton Tai’an is conveniently set on the city’s main street, Huan Shan Road, just three kilometers from the Tai’an Industrial Development Zone. Overlooking a scenic lake, the hotel is part of a mixed-use development offering extensive retail and leisure facilities. Jinan Yaoqiang International Airport (TNA) is 120 kilometres or approximately one and a half hours away.
Explore Tai’an’s mountains of history, including Mount Tai. One of China’s “Five Sacred Mountains,” it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site with spectacular landscapes and views. Pass temples, ruins, stone tablets, and countless stone inscriptions before arriving at the foot of the mountain, where the 96,000-square-metre Dai Temple—the area’s largest and most complete ancient building complex—awaits.
Discovery continues at the Museum of Feng Yu Xiang, which houses stone steles inscribed with poems written by the warlord Feng. Witness history live at the Shandong Local Opera, performed with wooden clappers, or catch a unique show by the popular Tai’an City Acrobatics Troupe. The city’s top shopping is found in Taishan Cultural Square or along Caiyuan Street, home to numerous shops and the Sihai Shopping Mall.
At Four Points by Sheraton Tai’an, we understand if you want to go exploring—just don’t stay away too long.
