Unlock ancient secrets in the legendary birthplace of kung fu.

Zhengzhou

Founded some 3,500 years ago in the Central Plains region, Zhengzhou is one of China’s most ancient cities. Much of its historical legacy was lost during WWII, though around 1,400 cultural relics can still be found here. Attractions in and around the city include Henan Museum; the world-renowned Shaolin Temple, birthplace of kung fu; the Forest of Pagodas, which is China’s oldest temple; Henan Museum; and Songshan National Forest Park, which hosts one of China’s Five Great Mountains. Given Zhengzhou’s industrial prowess, this is also a popular destination for business travellers and investors.
