The city of abundance
As you travel through the western plains of the Sichuan basin, you reach the ancient city of Chengdu, now the capital of Sichuan Province. More than 11 million residents live in the sprawling ‘land of the plentiful’, measuring 12,132 sq km.

Shaped by the winds of 3000 years, Chengdu is known for its hospitable climate, picture postcard scenery, folk art and places of historical interest. Among them:
  • The Memorial Temple of Marquis Zhuge Liang
  • Du Fu’s Thatched Cottage
  • Mount Qingcheng
  • The Dujiangyan Irrigation System
Chengdu is also the gateway to the Three Gorges on the Yangtze River in the east, Tibet, the Jiuzhaigou Valley and Huanglong in the west, Xi’an (the city of terracotta war¬riors and horses) in the north and Mount Emei and the Buddhist caves of Leshan in the south.
