With over 2,000 years as Shandong's political center, Zibo boasts profound history and culture as the "Former Capital of Qi State".

Traveling into Lushan feels like entering a Jiangnan water town, appreciating this Lu Zhong peak's pristine waters and hills. Descending into the fantastical, number one stone flower cave in the world - Jiutian Cave - one experiences nature's grandeur. In Liaozhai City, strange tales from Pu Songling's Liaozhai Zhiyi enthral visitors.

The cityscape's gleaming new facades seem to recount China's long ceramic and soccer histories, perfectly blending cultural heritage with modern industry.
