So, the latest article I was able to read on Shenyang on this website was from 2005. I figured I could let some others know that some things have changed in Shenyang since that last editorial. Especially, since 2008 and the Olympics are fast approaching.

Well, Starbucks may not be the best coffee ... Details

Shenyang has always had it hard. The weather is fiercely hot in summer and frighteningly cold in winter. The land is wide and rough, and the people have a correspondingly broad and hearty nature, the kind of culture that is born from tough lives and strong communities.

Anyone who waits out the cool, windy autumn weather in Shenyang can’t wait for that first snow. As soon as the old, dusty streets are sheeted in fresh snowfall, everybody rushes out to take photographs: for a moment, the city takes on a thin mask of beauty.

Forget anything you've been told about Shenyang. A bleak, industrial outpost it is not; neither is it particularly grimy, overpopulated, or culturally barren, barely worth passing through on your way to Dalian.
