All about Chengdu

Home to the world's laziest bear, the famously cute giant panda, Chengdu is also known throughout China for its spicy Sichuan cuisine, fiery face-changing shows and a unique culture that traces its roots back to the Shu Kingdom and Bronze-age Sanxindui civilization. While the newly-built world's largest building, the New Century Global Center, is garnering global headlines, famous Chengdu attractions like the nearby Leshan Giant Buddha still amaze and awe. It's a historic city comfortable in its own cultural skin even as it becomes one of China's most important modern cities.
