Puyang Attractions - Things to Do

Qicheng City Ruins

Qicheng City, also called Longkui City, was a town of great importance when Puyang was the central city of Wei Kingdom during the Spring and Autumn Period. At present, the 1,520 meter remains of the city walls and the underground historic relics of six thousand years from the Yangshao Culture  to the Han Dynasty (206BC-240AD) are all under national protection.

Cangjie Mausoleum

It is said that Cangjie was the official in charge of word-formation in the Emperor Huangdi period. He made careful observation of living things benefitting from the sign words that were used by the various tribes, and finally created characters which ended the history of rope-knotting records. The mausoleum consists of the Cangjie Tomb, the Cangjie Temple and some stone inscriptions. The building was constructed in his hometown to commemorate the Chinese sage of word-formation.

 History: The city was called Diqiu in ancient times. During the Spring and Autumn Period (770BC-476BC) it was the political, economic, and cultural city of the Wei Kingdom for four hundred years. The name of this city came into use following the Warring States Period (476BC-221BC). The First Dragon in China, which was piled up with mussel shells 6,400 years ago, was discovered in 1987 in Xishuipo, hence Puyang is reputed to be the birthplace of Chinese dragon culture.

 Physical Features: The city is a part of the Yellow River alluvial plain. Its terrain is relatively flat and gently declines from the southwest to the northeast. The siltation, stagnation, burst, and course changing of the Yellow River have shaped the landform of the city: seventy percent is flat, twenty percent is covered with slight depressions, and there are small areas of sand and water.

You can take a flight to Zhengzhou first, which takes about 2h. And then you can catch an intercity bus from the airport to your destination. The bus takes about 2h 30 minutes and CNY80.
