In ancient times, 13 dynasties selected Luoyang as China’s capital, enabling a period of growth and prosperity, and ranking it as a metropolitan city on tours to China.

Scientific inventions were born in Luoyang such as the seismograph, armillary sphere, paper making, printing, and the compass.

Luoyang has rich historical and cultural sites including the Longmen Grottos, one of China’s three most precious treasure houses of stone sculptures and inscriptions. The landscapes are just as attractive as the cultural sites, with scenic areas such as White Cloud Mountain, Funiu Mountain, Long Yu Wan National Forest Park, Ji Guan Limestone Cave, and the Yellow River Xiaolangdi Scenic Area, all to be enjoyed on a China vacation
