Chengdu is widely acclaimed as one of the best tourist destinations in China, due to its rich and diverse tourist resources and good tourist services.
The local must-visit attractions include Mt. Qingcheng and Dujiangyan Irrigation System, a world natural and cultural heritage site, Du Fu Thatched Cottage and Wuhou Shrine, two well-known places of historical interests, and the Jinsha Site Museum, one of the most important archaeological discoveries about the Shu Culture in China.
The city captivates visitors with its spectacular natural beauty and distinct tourist resources. Its long history, profound culture and civilization, and unique laid-back lifestyle are tempting more and more people to stay and live here. With an urban history dating back to more than 2,300 years ago, the city has developed its own particularities of culture featuring local people's such traits as inclusiveness, open-mindedness, optimism, easygoingness and self-confidence.
Thanks to the time-honored history and civilization, Chengdu preserves well its own folk culture and customs. Mottled ancient city walls with stories to tell, old tea houses with the scent of tea drifting through the air, winding old alleys which are reverberating with the sounds of traditional Sichuan Opera percussion instruments ... People could not help but indulge into the reminiscences of the past old days. While conserving the precious historical and cultural heritage and legacies, including the Wide & Narrow Alleys, Wuhou Shrine and Qingyang Palace, the city incorporates creatively new cultural elements into its ancient folk customs and festive celebrations like temple fair, flower festival and lantern show. And the traditional leisure culture and conventional ways of recreation have taken on new meaning. All these reflect the cultural uniqueness of the native Sichuan people.
As a city where east meets west, tradition meets modernity, inheritance meets innovation, and fast growth meets slow life, Chengdu, with cultural diversity, is regarded as a melting pot ideal for people to live, work, study and start business.
Chengdu has a lot of theaters, concert halls, libraries, museums and cinemas. An official survey report states that currently, there are nearly 150 museums of different kinds in the city, which tops all of its counterparts in the country. The strong cultural and artistic atmosphere and ample places of culture and arts enrich local citizens' cultural life.
Food is an important part of the local culture. Over the more than 2,000 years, Chengdu, Asia's first UNESCO City of Gastronomy, has been flourishing in the business and catering sectors. As one of China's four major cuisines, Chengdu's Sichuan-style food is globally reputed for its diverse and spicy flavors and tastiness.
