    Laoshan is home to some of the oldest Taoist and Buddhist sites in China, with temples flourishing to this day. Other aspects of Chinese culture have also flourished, including unique martial arts and traditional music. The landscape is beautiful, sculpted by thousands of years of glaciation and the air of mystery around Laoshan is only increased by mysterious jade rocks that emerge from the sea.
