About Sichuan Tourism Regains

By: Frank Buckingham

Sichuan's abundant cultural and panoramic tourism is producing a powerful recovery after the crushing quake of May 2008. Sichuan has long been identified as the acreage of abundance. The unique meaning referred to its wealthy agriculture, but can also make reference to the ample tourist sights in this beautiful state.

Many of Sichuan's primary tourist attractions were unaffected by the quake. Exquisite Mount Emei with its abundant Buddhist tradition, Jiuzhaigou Valley Nature Reserve with its several multi level waterfalls and brilliant lakes, Huanglong scenic and historical interest place with its diverse woods ecosystems, snow-capped summits, waterfalls and hot springs, and the Giant Buddha at Leshan were all undamaged.

Unfortunately, the world famed Wolong Giant Panda Breeding and Research Center was badly damaged in the earth quake and the pandas were relocated to the Ya'an (Bifengxia) Allow for safekeeping. The other chief giant panda facility, Chengdu Panda Center, shut was not changed by the earth quake and never.

Mount Qingcheng, the birth place of Taoism was partly damaged and Tianshi Cave, dwelling of the Yellow Emperor Temple, that was seriously damaged, is restored to its former glory and re-opened to the general public. Restoration of the nearby Fulong Temple will be completed this month (July) and Erwang Temple will follow shortly later.

The teahouses of other cities, Chengdu and the capital are again full of visitants and local occupants relaxing over pots of Jasmine tea. For a nominal 5 RMB cost for the tea, clients can sit all day chatting or reverie in this most conventional Sichuan way.
