Traveling in Henan is an adventure, so make sure you take to the road and check out a few of the other population centers in the vicinity of Sanmenxia.
Go to Henan's historic archeological sites, it's a good way to explore the region's fascinating history.
Hot air ballooning is the perfect activity for travelers longing to bring out their inner-daredevil.
Learn a little Mandarin and speak with the locals in Sanmenxia. A good example of a hand local sentence is "Nǐ yào bú yào gēn wǒ tiàowǔ" (Would you like todance with me?). And, using "Zhèiwèi xiānsheng huì qīngdān", which means "This gentleman/lady will pay for everything", can be a good conservation starter.
When the time comes to leave Sanmenxia, you'll be sure to bid this region a sad "Zàijiàn" But be comforted by the fact that you'll be heading home with memories and momentos that you can enjoy for years to come.
