Lying at the south foot of Taihang Mountain and adjacent to the Yellow River, Xinxiang is a prefecture-level city in China’s Henan Province. It is situated 70 kilometers from the province’s capital, Zhengzhou. The Four Points by Sheraton Xinxiang is conveniently located in the center of the city’s new Central Business District (CBD) along Jin Sui Da Dao. As part of Xinxiang Powerlong City Plaza, retail shops, a mall, and entertainment options are just steps away. Zhengzhou Xinzheng International Airport (CGO) is an hour away by car.
Xinxiang has dozens of cultural relics and scenic spots, such as the new Xinxiang Museum nearby. Or head to the Mausoleum of King Lu, the only intact tomb of its kind in China. Housed at the edge of Fenghuang (Phoenix) Mountain just 13 kilometers from the city, and reflecting the history and culture of the Ming Dynasty, it features two tombs: King Lujian’s lies in the east, and his wife’s is in the west. More history can be found at the 3,000-year-old Bigan Temple. Situated northeast of the city, this ancient holy shrine’s main buildings feature a screen wall, a front gate, a second gate, wooden and stone archways, stone tablets, halls, and pavilions.
Found 22 kilometers from town and meaning “hundred springs,” the Baiquan Scenic Area is filled with beautiful water-enriched landscapes and fantastic historical relics. And each year, the Baligou Scenic Area at Taihang Mountain draws many visitors to absorb the wonderful scenery and numerous waterfalls. Other scenic spots worth seeing include the Guanshan Geopark, the Wanxianshan Scenic Area, and Xinxiang City Park.
