Chengdu is the capital of Sichuan province–home to famous historic sites, cuisine, and culture. Our school is located in a new area of Chengdu, a high-tech area in the southwest of the city. The master-planned location will include plenty of green space, and is convenient to the Chengdu airport as well.
Living in Chengdu
Chengdu is the capital of Sichuan province–home to famous historic sites, cuisine, and culture. About 1,300 years ago, Li Bai, the greatest poet in the Tang dynasty, described Chengdu as a prosperous, peaceful, and beautiful place in one of his famous poems. This certainly remains true today, as Chengdu has consistently been considered as one of the happiest cities in China, and one of the world’s 15 Happiest Places by the CNN Travel Channel.
Chengdu has the largest hospital in China, easy shopping in neighborhood markets, and also the Chengdu Global Center–the world’s largest stand-alone building, approximately the size of 20 Sydney Opera Houses and 8 Beijing Olympic Stadiums.
The city is also home to the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding. Numerous other outdoor recreation activities are within easy reach as well, including Qingchen Mountain, the Bamboo Ocean in south Sichuan, rafting, hiking, and skiing. High-speed rail lines also connect the city to almost all other major cities in China.
