Heilongjiang is a province of the People's Republica of China located in the northeastern part of the country. "Heilongjiang" literally means Black Dragon River, which is the Chinese name for the Amur.

 

Heilongjiang is the northernmost province in China, bordering Jilin to the south, Inner Mongolia to the west and Russia to the north. It covers an area of 469,000 sq km with a population of 38.17 million.

 

Harbin, the provincial capital, together with Heihe and Suifenhe are approved by the State Council to enjoy the same preferential economic policies as the coastal open cities. Other major cities include Qiqihar, Daqing and Mudanjiang.

 

Ethnic minorities are widely distributed in Heilongjiang, and the increase in the minority population is fast. Besides the Han Chinese, there are Man, Hui, Korea, Mongolian and Hezhent, and 49 other different ethnic groups.

 

Among its beautiful and famous scenic places are the Five Grand Lakes, the Songhua River, and a variety of waterfalls and caves. The boundless great plain, the magnificent forests, snow-bound mountains and the unique regional culture are all very attractive to tourists.
