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.
