About this photo

The 2,000-year-old capital of the Sichuan Province in China is home to Qintai Road. Traditional houses built in the style of the Ming and Qing dynasties line the street, with shops and teahouses found within. 

This colourful street is a commemoration of a 2000-year-old love story. Learn the story of a young wealthy widow, Zhuo Wenjun, and a poor scholar, Sima Xiangru, on Insight Guides' Sichuan Specialities: Chengdu, Temples and Pandas trip.
