Liaoning is part of the industrial powerhouse of North-Eastern China. It borders on North Korea to the South and has the important port of Dalian on the rugged peninsula extending into the Yellow Sea.
Shenyang, the provincial capital, was the cradle of the Manchus who ruled China during the Qing dynasty and has many historic tombs and palaces. When the dynasty fell in 1912 the area (Manchuria) fell under the control of the Japanese until the end of World War II. Eventually the communists took control from the Japanese, Russians and nationalists to bring the whole area into the People's Republic of China.See also :
