Our 2008 China Eclipse Trip - Page 8

Downtown Baoding

We will take the train to Baoding. Friends will meet us at the train station. Trip is about 90 minutes.

Baoding, literally translated as protect for the safety of the Capital Beijing used to be called the Southern Gate of Beijing because of its military and political importance, in the Ming(1368-1644) and Qing (1644-1911) Dynasty. For the last 250 years, until the 60's in the 20th century, Baoding had been served as the center of Hebei Province.
