Puyang, a city exuberant with personality and glamour, is like a gem shining bright in the Central Plains.
    A time-honored city in Henan Province, Puyang abounds with its historical and cultural heritage, and is widely acclaimed as o­ne of the birthplaces of the Chinese nation. The Book of o­ngs, the earliest collection of verses in China, has devoted many poems to depicting the busy scenes of the countryside. In history, a myriad of figures have emerged from Puyang, which lends great glory to this place of simple folkways. Among them are Cang Xie, the inventor of Chinese characters, Wu Qi, a military strategist, Shang Yang, a statesman, Lv Buwei, a great thinker, to name o­nly a few. Puyang is also a renowned ancient battlefield where a lot of major events and wars had occurred.
     In 1987, a historical relic, made up of a series of clams arranged in dragon patterns, was unearthed. The valuable discovery, which could be dated back to more than 6,400 years ago, had pushed forward the history of Chinese civilization for over 1,400 years, and therefore earned itself an international reputation of “the First Dragon of China”. The Chinese Yanhuang Culture Researching Association has accordingly named Puyang “the Hometown of Chinese Dragons”.  Abundant heritage along with a long history has endowed Puyang with plenty of tourism resources, which is certainly of great investment value.
