Do some cultural sightseeing at Jinsha Site Museum and Wuhou Memorial Temple. You'll discover tucked-away gems like New Century Global Center and Beihu Park. And it doesn't end there: look for all kinds of wild species at Giant Panda Breeding Research Base (Xiongmao Jidi), appreciate the extensive heritage of Kuanzhai Ancient Street of Qing Dynasty, take an in-depth tour of Du Fu Cottage, and explore and take pictures at Sichuan University.
