I had my college career in Chengdu from 2005 to 2009, so Chendu is a second home city to me. In 2021 Chinese National Holiday, I have travelled back to Chengdu as my first trip place. This time, I have witnessed the development and traditional part of Chengdu.
In the last few years, Chengdu has invested a lot in the southern area. The Tianfu Ave is the main road which lies in the heart of southern area of Chengdu, and numerous modern building are fast growing at both sides. You can see lots of famous companies logo in these buildings , such as IBM, Lenovo, etc.
In Xinglong Lake, the government took lots of efforts to make a beautiful environment for colleges and enterprises. I have seen the Chinese famous Tsinghua University and Shanghai Jiao Tong University here, and many high-tech starups. It seems Xinglong lake will be like Stanford area in the future.
