Day tour for Sanxingdui and Jinsha sites
Sanxingdui site culture boasts as the Ninth wonder in the world and one of the most important archaeological discovery in the 20th century. This ancient culture had a well developed bronze casting culture which permitted the manufacture of many impressive articles, for instance, the world's oldest life-size standing human statue, and a bronze tree with birds, flowers, and ornaments. The most striking finds were dozens of large bronze masks and heads represented with angular human features, exaggerated almond-shaped eyes, some with protruding pupils, and large upper ears.
The Jinsha site was accidentally discovered in February 2001. The site flourished around 1000 BC and shares similarities in burial objects with the Sanxingdui site. Ivory, jade artifacts, bronze objects, gold objects and carved stone objects were found at the site.

Victor is no doubt one of the best guides we have ever used via Tours by Locals (and we have used many!!!). We spent two days with Victor and both were absolutely perfect. Being a Panda Keeper for a Day was one of the most special things we have ever done. Getting so close to these incredible animals was just priceless! We also did a private city tour with Victor and enjoyed every minute of it. Victor is knowledgeable, friendly and willing to go out of his way to make your day the best. WE LOVE HIM!
