Lying in China’s central Henan Province, Luoyang is one of the Four Ancient Capitals in China. Nine dynasties had settled their capital here in Chinese history. For several centuries, Luoyang was called “The Eastern Capital” comparing to Xi’an (The Western Capital). The Yellow River, China’s mother river, flows through this area, that’s why Luoyang is the birthplace of the earliest Chinese civilization.

The centerpiece of a Luoyang tour is the Shaolin Temple, a UNESCO world heritage site enjoying a world-wide fame. It’s an ideal place to experience Chinese Buddhism and martial arts. Other popular places to see include the one–kilometer-long treasure trove Longmen Grottoes, White Horse Temple where a large number of precious Buddhist items are housed, Luoyang Museum with exhibits of historical and cultural relics of this district, and Guanlin Temple dedicated to Guan Yu - a highly respected general during the Three Kingdoms Period. Taking a stroll in the old town is a good way to better understanding the local culture. If it’s April and early May when you are visiting Luoyang, flower enthusiasts shouldn’t miss the annual Peony Fair.

Luoyang is roughly 850 kilometers from Beijing. Flight is available between the two cities with duration of 100 minutes. According to the present train schedule (May, 2012), a bullet train runs from Beijing in the morning and arrives at Luoyang at 5 pm.
