China's Automobile City

Capital of Jilin Province, Changchun witnessed some turbulent 20th-century Chinese history, occupied at times by both the Japanese and Soviets. Today, that all feels like a thing of the past, especially as you tour Changchun's botanical parks, emperor's palace, film studios, and museums. Once China's premier movie capital, the city now boasts a thriving automobile industry, and hosts annual film and motoring festivals. Note that buses can be difficult to navigate, and the absence of bike lanes makes cycling in this busy metropolis dangerous. Instead, do your sightseeing in Changchun with the novel three-wheeled plastic taxis and one remaining tram line.

Where to stay in Changchun

With notably more upmarket establishments than budget, Changchun still has a vast range of sleeping options, and hotels lie scattered throughout almost all of the city's districts. Your most affordable choices lie just south of the train station, within walking distance to transport links but slightly farther from the capital's main attractions. For a touch of decadence on your Changchun vacation, look farther south toward the commercial district and botanical gardens for a range of premium lodgings boasting health spas, fine dining, and extensive breakfasts.
