Ancient Chengdu on track to be a global metropolis

Authors: China Daily


Chengdu, with history of more than 2,300 years, has set itself the target of becoming an international city of culture, tourism and sports events, as well as an international metropolis known for its food, music and event hosting.
In addition, Chengdu will support the development of independently organized tours and medical tours, as well as study tours relating to science and technology, and old industrial bases. As the city presses on with improving its comprehensive transport network that includes airports, highways and high-speed and intercity railways, more facilities to link tourist areas are being built.
The city has also set up a convenient shopping payment and tax rebate system for overseas tourists. Visitors can exchange foreign currencies at major tourism spots, hotels and shopping centers, and payment via smartphone is ubiquitous.
In recent years, Chengdu has hosted the World Snooker Championship, the International Universities Rowing Competition and the Chengdu Dubai International Cup in horse racing, and this has added to its expertise in hosting major international sports events.
Since ancient times Chengdu and its surrounding area have been regarded as a prosperous region. Today they have become a logical choice for anyone who is keen on excellent food and having many leisure options at their disposal.
The booming local food industry is a significant brand for the city. Chengdu has been awarded the title of City of Gastronomy by UNESCO, the first city in Asia to win the honour. Chengdu will use food as a calling card to attract more people to visit, taste and start their businesses in the city.
Relying on its attractive tourism, food, culture and infrastructure, Chengdu will ramp up the development of its conference industry and build itself into a model in China for event services.
