Visit Sichuan

Sichuan is a province located in southwestern China, known for its spicy cuisine and breathtaking landscapes. It is bordered by the Tibetan Plateau to the west and Chongqing Municipality to east. The capital of Sichuan is Chengdu, a vibrant city renowned for its teahouses, street food and traditional Chinese architecture.

For those looking to explore the area's many attractions, there are plenty of places to visit. Mount Emei is one of the four sacred Buddhist Mountains of China and home to numerous ancient temples including Leshan Giant Buddha - an impressive 71-metre tall stone statue carved into a cliffside. Huanglong Scenic Area showcases unique mineral formations, snow-capped mountains and colorful lakes while Jiuzhaigou Valley boasts glittering waterfalls surrounded by lush forests.

Sichuan has a rich history: it was an important transmission hub on the Silk Road during China's Han Dynasty (206 BC - 220 AD) and produced many famous personalities such as philosopher Zhuangzi who profoundly influenced Taoism as we know it today.
