To really appreciate this region in all it's richness, drive a little further out to experience the sights and attractions around Hebi. Anyang, is 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the south, while Lanyang is situated 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the south.
Experience the region's rich cultural tapestry within Henan's fascinating history museums.
Take your own gear or rent it on the spot, and make the most of the region's water sports. Rafting is one great activity. Another one is boating.
The real essence of a region can be found not just within its mountains, but within its words also. Making the effort to memorize just a handful of common Mandarin words and phrases will make your visit to Hebi all the more rewarding. "Nǐ yào bú yào gēn wǒ tiàowǔ" ("Would you like todance with me?") is handy. "Zhèiwèi xiānsheng huì qīngdān" ("This gentleman/lady will pay for everything") is also helpful.
At the end of your time in Hebi, use your last renminbi on last-minute souvenirs and bid a fond Zàijiàn (farewell).
