Things to Do

March is a good month for traveling to the local flower fairs. Chengdu has big flower fairs in the beginning of spring. In March, there are fairs for peaches, tulips, and cherries (at Qingbaijiang).

International Peach Blossom Festival: The dates vary from year to year, but it usually lasts a month, and it happens in the middle of March when the peach trees are in full bloom. Chengdu is one of the biggest peach growing regions.

Shixiang Lake Tulip Festival: One of the biggest tulip festivals in Asia is held at Shixiang Lake. It is about 93 kilometers from Chengdu.

See the Sanxingdui Museum: For history buffs, the Sanxingdui Museum is a main attraction in Chengdu. It contains the artifacts and beautiful bronze castings of a once forgotten and recently discovered ancient civilization of the same name. The civilization is distinctive and unusual in many ways.
