China - Sichuan (Chapter)
This is the Sìchuān chapter from Lonely Planet’s China guidebook.
Capital Chéngdū shows a modern face, but just beyond its bustling ring roads you’ll find a more traditional landscape of mist-shrouded, sacred mountains, and a countryside scattered with ancient villages and cliffs of carved Buddhas. Central Sìchuān is also home to the giant panda, the most famous face in China.
