As the capital of Sichuan Province, Chengdu has the Tibetan Plateau in the west and the Three Gorges and the Yangtze River in the east. It has been the cultural and economic center in China’s southwestern region for several thousand years. It is famous for its spicy food and laidback lifestyle and of course the home for giant pandas.
Beijing has been China’s political, cultural and economic heart for several hundred years. Many places of historic and cultural interests are in the city or within its vicinity, such as Tiananmen Square, Forbidden City, The Temple of Heaven, Summer Palace, and the Great Wall, Terracotta Warriors in Xian, Giant Buddha, and Panda Base. The program includes visits to these places as well as other business, cultural and historical sites.
