Sichuan is vast and diverse. As a traveler, your biggest problem is how to explore the best highlights of Sichuan culture in a trip since your time is limited, budget has to be under control, and energy is not infinite. To help you plan your trip easily, we have concluded the best highlights of Sichuan culture according to specific themes, such as Ancient Civilization, Three Kingdom, Tea Culture, etc.
Museums are usually great places to learn about a city’s culture, history and facts.

There are hundreds of different museums with different themes in the “Abundant Land” Sichuan. Following are some greatest museums in Sichuan：

Learning fully about the culture of a destination like Sichuan is not easy and cannot been done in a few days. Our point of view for students or family with kids is to explore the highlighting park in a fun and relaxing way. Obviously, there is no better ideals than tasting delicious Sichuan Cuisine and watching a wonderful Sichuan Opera Show (dramas, face changing, fire spitting…)
Every World Heritage Site is a unique book about a magnificent historical site or a stunning natural landscape. Here in Sichuan, you have many great books to read. So far, there are 5 World Heritage Sites in Sichuan Province –Sichuan Giant Panda Sanctuaries, Dujiangyan Irrigation System & Qingchengshan Mountain, Leshan Giant Buddha & Mount Emei, Jiuzhaigou National Park, Huanglong National Park. Compared with other 3 sites, Jiuzhaigou and Huanglong are not very recommended for student travel because they are much far away from Chengdu, and mainly about scenery, which seems to be not very “educational”.
If you think drinking tea is not enough, just get out of town to a beautiful tea farm on the mountains of Mengdingshan to experience the exciting whole process of plucking fresh leaves and making. Last, bring the tea you made back home.
Are you a fan of Kung Fu Panda? Do you want to be a Kungfu Master like Po? If you want to learn some authentic and traditional Chinese Kung Fu, we strongly suggest you learn Kung Fu in Chengdu because it is not only the top travel destination, but also a place where some real Kung Fu are taught by great Martial Art masters. Emei Kung Fu, created in Mount Emei, is one of most classic Martial Arts in China. Apart of Emei Kung Fu, there are also some other courses of Tai Chi, Wing Chun, etc.
Chengdu is now known as the “Forth City” because it is now as flourishing as Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou. It has become the most important center of economy, cultural and transportation of western China. What is commendable is that Chengdu has preserved the old tradition, streets, parks, temples, architecture very well as an important part of this modern city. Then where to witness the prosperity of modern Chengdu?
It is easy to create resonance between Student and Student. Language is not the problem because English is taught in every school in Chengdu now. The most important part is to experience the local school culture. But not every school is open for tourists. Many university and international high schools usually organize exchanging meeting or study programs for native students and international students, such as Sichuan University, Sichuan Normal University, etc.
As a travel agency, we are responsible for organizing sightseeing, hotels, transfer, and hotels. Contacting a local school for an exchange meeting needs to be done by the international school.
