Henan is one of the oldest regions of China and it's considered to be the heart of its civilization. A province of ancient capitals and royal dynasties, Henan had already started to develop and flourish thousands of years, creating what would be the magnificent cultural centre of China. Henan helped develop China's spiritual ways of life and religions such as Confucianism, Taoism and Buddhism, further boosting its "holy land" status. A land of ancient traditions, with mystical temples, majestic monuments and enchanting lush landscapes, this region is a "must-see" destination when visiting the land of the dragon. With famous UNESCO Sites, such as the Centre of Heaven and Earth, the Longman Grottos, the Yin Dynasty Ruins (where you can see the Oldest Buddhist temple in China) and the Shaolin Temple, Henan allows you to live and breathe Chinese history and experience the country's more traditional and identitarian side.
