Hibiscus City
The home of giant pandas for more than two million years, Chengdu's vast human history cowers in comparison to the natural heritage of the area. On any human scale, though, Chengdu offers history in abundance, with the area first inhabited over 4,000 years ago. A number of World Heritage-listed sites show the regional importance of the city to development in the area, dating back to the time of the state of Shu, through the period of the Three Kingdoms and beyond. Along with a mass of temples, ruins, and historic districts, the city's UNESCO-protected giant panda sanctuaries represent some of the main attractions in Chengdu. Customize your holiday with our China trip planner to create an adventure that suits you.
