Zhaohua Ancient Town, a famous historical and cultural town with a history of more than 4,000 years, is a national AAAA tourist attraction.

Zhaohua Ancient Town is an important birthplace of the Three Kingdoms (220-280) culture, with the best-preserved cultural resources of the Three Kingdoms so far. It is an important example for studying the politics, military, economics and culture of the state of Shu Han.

The ancient city has a peculiar natural landscape. At the junction of the Jialing River and the Bailong River, the magnificent natural Tai Chi map with a diameter of 5 kilometers and an area of 20 square kilometers formed by mountains and rivers is known as "the greatest natural Tai Chi in the world".
