Where China Began... Henan Tourism in partnership with CTS Horizons


Henan holds a very important position in the formation and development of Chinese culture. Historical records and years of archaeological study have revealed Henan's ancestors established human civilization more than 8,000 years ago and were the first to create the human civilization in China. Henan is located in the Central Plains on the middle and lower reaches of the Yellow River and has been the political, economic and cultural centre of China for some 3,000 years, deemed the "cradle of Chinese civilization." Considered the "Museum of Chinese history and culture," more than 200 emperors spanning 20 dynasties have reigned over the province.
Four of the Eight Great Ancient Capitals of China can be found in this region, Luoyang, Anyang, Kaifeng and Zhengzhou.
Songshan Mountain, one of the "Five Sacred Mountains of China," is the birthplace of Zen Buddhism in China and home to many magnificent temples, the most notable, the Shaolin Temple, is where all Chinese martial arts originated.
Along with stunning natural scenery, Henan boasts a rare cultural heritage. Many annual festivals are celebrated there. To mention a few of the most important: 
  • The Zhengzhou Interternational Shaolin Kungfu Festival introduces the world to the mesmerizing artistry of martial arts. To know more about its origin and birthplace read also China Travel Guide: the Shaolin Temple
  • Kaifeng called the "city of chrysanthemum" puts on a grand display of the flowers every fall.
  • Luoyang is vibrant with colourful delicate peonies exhibited at their annual Peony Festival.
Serviced by the three major airports of Luoyang, Zhengzhou and Nanyang, Henan Province is readily accessible by all major cities in China. Centrally located, easily accessible by air and land, and a splendid history, there is no better time to visit Henan Province then now.
