Pandas, Bamboo, and SpicesStreaming Video - 2010
Surrounded by an awe-inspiring mountain landscape, China's Sichuan province is celebrated for its natural wonders and distinctive cuisine. This program guides viewers through many of Sichuan's features, including the Jiuzhaigou National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site; a bamboo forest area that is among the last continuous habitats of the Great Panda; mountain routes and passes frequently used by Tibetan minorities; a misty, subtropical plain with ancient irrigation systems and other reminders of millennia-old cultures; and historical sites at Emei Shan, the highest of China's four sacred Buddhist mountains. The provincial capital, Chengdu, once a center of brocade manufacturing, now brims with teahouses.
