KQED World: Sat, May 17, 2014 -- 3:00 PM

American travelers Chris and Sarah are quick to observe that these northern Chinese cities are not much different than major cities in the U.S. like San Francisco or New York. They visit the magnificent Shenyang Imperial Palace. At Changchun World Sculpture Park, they see 450 different sculptures from artists over 215 different countries. In addition to experiencing urban life and culture through eating the food and engaging in social activities with locals, they visit unique natural sites including the Benxi Water Cave, called "the longest water cave in Asia" near Shenyang.
