  旁白: 离开锦州,

  After leaving Jinzhou,

  我们马不停蹄地赶往下一个城市——

  we rushed nonstop to the next city,

  葫芦岛。

  Huludao.

  在葫芦岛的西南部,

  In southwestern Huludao,

  有一座建于570多年前的古城——

  there is an ancient town called

  Xingcheng,

  兴城。

  which was built 570 years ago,

  一路走来,

  On our way here,

  我们也看了不少美丽的风光

  we've seen a lot of beautiful scenery

  和历史悠久的古迹。

  and historical sites.

  但是像这样保存完好的

  But this is our first time

  明代古城

  to have seen such a well preserved

  ancient town

  却还是头一回看到。

  dating from the Ming Dynasty.
