Chengdu is the modern, busy capital city of Sichuan Province in south central China. It is a key economic area, a major transportation hub, an important communication center, and the gateway to the Wolong Nature Reserve, the natural habitat of the giant panda. It also became widely known in 2008: the epicenter of the deadly Sichuan earthquake was a mere 80 kilometers away.
