Charming Chengdu/魅力成都

Chengdu City is the capital of Sichuan Province now and called “Rongcheng City”. It is one of the famous historical and cultural cities in China and located at the middle reaches of the Minjiang River in the middle of Sichuan Province in central Chengdu Plain.

Chengdu has been famous for its rich cultural heritages. Within its jurisdiction are Qionglai city, Chongzhou city and Pengzhou city, all of which are listed as Cities of Rich Cultural and Historical Heritage by the government of Sichuan province. In November 2000, Dujiangyan Irrigation System and Qingcheng Mountain (the Taoist Mountain) were ranked as Cities of the World Cultural Heritage by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).

Besides, the local teahouses, snack bars and bazaars (also known as free markets) are still the popular places for tourists to frequent. One can either taste the typical Sichuan cuisine, local wine and tea or sort out his shopping of local special products like Shu embroidery pieces, bamboo- woven porcelain ware and lacquer ware or familiarize himself with local folklores and customs.
