Set on the banks of the Yellow River, the capital city of Henan province is an economical, technological and educational powerhouse in the heart of China. With a history that dates back to ancient Chinese times, Zhengzhou is a great starting point for those who want to dive into China’s past.
One of the most attractive draws to the city is the famed Shaolin Temple, which is located just outside Zhengzhou. A day trip to the temple lets visitors explore the roots of a particularly popular martial art: Kung Fu. Also nearby are the majestic grounds of the Longmen Grottoes, home to a stunning collection of ancient Chinese art and Buddhist statues. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is made of thousands of caves, featuring statues carved directly into limestone cliffs. Both Shaolin Temple and the Longmen Grottoes are worth a day trip from Zhengzhou.
In the city, visitors won’t find an overwhelming amount of things to do, though the local cuisine is always a draw. Noodle shops and traditional Chinese pastries, known as Taosibao, are two of Zhengzhou’s calling cards. There is also the pyramid-shaped Henan Provincial Museum, with its array of ancient artefacts and pottery, as well as the Yellow River Scenic Area, a green space set along the river with tranquil sights of the water.
There is a public bus system that connects visitors with most of the local attractions, and fares are affordable. Air-conditioned and non air-conditioned buses are both available to the public. Taxis can also be hired for direct transportation to your destination of choice.
Getting from the Airport to the city
Zhengzhou Xinzheng International Airport (CGO) is the main airport serving the city. It is located about 23 miles (37 km) southeast of Zhengzhou. Shuttle buses connect passengers to local hotels and limited destinations in the city, while a public bus system also lets travellers easy move from the airport into Zhengzhou. Taxis are also available on site and can be hired around the clock.
