Organized by the Chengdu city government and sponsored by Overseas Chinese Town, a pre-event program for the 14th Chengdu Gourmet and Tourism Festival took place at the KFC Panda Restaurant on Chunxi Road, Chengdu, September 26.
The Chengdu Restaurant & Food Guide, an official handbook for the festival, and a panda themed stamp folder, co-produced by KFC Chengdu and Chengdu Panda Post, were released at the scene.
Song Bingyang, a popular Chengdu native singer and songwriter, sang Chengdu, Chengdu created by himself, pushing the program to a climax.
"I'm a Chengdu native and lived in the city's west downtown. During my childhood, I used to visit the Du Fu Thatched Cottage to enjoy the cultural ambience and tranquility there," said Song, adding that "Despite leaving home at the age of 14 to pursue my dream of music, I always have a special feeling for my hometown. I love everything of it, including its hotpot, Wuhou Shrine, and the Three Kingdoms culture. I would like to let all people around the globe know well about its gorgeous natural landscape and incredible cuisine."
On the front cover of the Guide is a map of the city's tourist attractions, and the back is a Chinese-English bilingual text on hot local sites, including the Du Fu Thatched Cottage, Wuhou Shrine, snow-capped Mt. Xiling, and the world's only panda-themed KFC restaurant.
