Overview[edit]

Panshan resort

The administration of Jizhou was transferred from Hebei province to Tianjin in 1973. Historically, it was also known as Yuyang (渔阳; 漁陽; Yúyáng) during the Tang Dynasty.

Jizhou is the only mountainous area in the Tianjin municipality, home to the renowned Mount Pan. Known as "Tianjin's backyard", the spectacular natural scenery and numerous historical monuments, including a small section of the Great Wall known as Huangyaguan, in the county means that it is a major tourist attraction. It is also well known for its abundance of unique, local fruits and nuts.

Jizhou is approximately 115 km (71 mi) away from the city proper of Tianjin. It has an area of 1,590 square kilometres (610 sq mi) and a population of 800,000.[1]
