With a long history and rich culture, the southwestern provinces of China including Yunnan, Guizhou, Sichuan and Chengdu, are among the most alluring destinations in the country. This region lays claim to some of the most breathtaking scenery in all of China – from Jiuzhai Valley National Park and Hailuogou Glacier, to one of the largest waterfalls in China, Huangguoshu Waterfall, to mysterious Shangri-La and tropical botanical garden Xishuangbanna. Weather you travel one of the Four Sacred Buddhist Mountains of China – Mount Emei, explore one of the most important Taoist centres in China – Mount Qingcheng, or take a trip through the magnificent ancient irrigation system, Dujiangyan – the cultural, geographical and ethnic diversity of this part of the World is simply overwhelming. In addition, strategies such as the “Road and Belt Initiative” and the new land-sea corridor in the west have brought more opportunities for development here.
