Details
Chengdu is one of the important birthplaces of Chinese civilization. The ancient and picturesque city is blessed with profound history and diverse cultures, full of legends about its alleys, streets, embankments and bridges. As the political, economic and cultural center of Western China, Chengdu is also a city embracing innovation, opening up, green development, and harmony.
 
Currently, Chengdu citizens are striving to build the city into a model park city on all fronts through implementing the new development concept and practicing the new mode in which the people, the landscape, and the city are compatible with each other. Chengdu is advancing towards the goal of a world-famous cultural city with great momentum. Cultural Kaleidoscope of Chengdu, looking into the details of Chengdu's history, culture, and folklore, unfolds a panorama of the city from a unique view. Through a vivid description of the beautiful scenes, anecdotes of ordinary citizens, and historic events, the book displays Chengdu's past and present, highlighting the special charm of the vibrant city for its inclusiveness, friendliness and well-being. With publication of the English book, we hope that more readers have access to the story and culture of Chengdu. Promoting civilization exchange and mutual learning is a sure way to bridge the gap between different minds, which is what The Open University of China·Huaqiao College has been aspiring for and the driving force for our efforts in organizing and compiling this book.
