The wind blows across the winding Yellow River, bringing with it the echoes of five-thousand years and it's tide and time changes；The cloud drifts over the high Mount Song, looking over the historical turns and twists, ups and downs.
Hello there！Here is Zhengzhou, Henan, China.
The city is old with a long history and at the same time, also a city that has been born again.
3600 years ago, here was the ancient capital city of Shang Dynasty. During this time, the “Erligang village” lived strong with a city wall, farming tools, houses and gardens and life of the ancient people.
Today, if you go from the Jianshe Road towards the east to Jinshui Road, you will go through the city's past and present, and you will trace the city's growth and development.
The cedar trees on the Jianshe Road grow high and strong, and the gateway of the State's Textile Factory are mottled with varied colors. People walk across the gateway decorated with flower-carved patterns, smell the flavor of the Hu-hot-soap for breakfast combined with that of the Stretched Noodles for lunch. The smoke rises from the kitchen chimneys of Soviet-style apartments built in 1950s, which is the beginning of the city's initial stage of industrialization.
The platanus trees on the sides of Jinshui Road look like a green umbrella with gorgeous shade. Towards the east, you will find a young city which has been born again.
The white pigeons fly over the Ruyi Lake. A number of high-rise buildings stand up surrounding the landmark building dubbed 'The Big Corn'. Before 2002, this was still a deserted land. The people of Zhengzhou have designed this blueprint on white paper, which has been completed with the introduction of the international design targeting the goal of building a cosmopolitan city.
It is often said that Zhengzhou is a city pulled by trains. So far Zhengzhou has integrated into a an even higher-speed development network. The building of the high-speed railway network shaped like the Chinese character “米”has been completed and the Airport Experimental District of National Levels is under speedy and vigorous construction.
In the future, here will be a global commercial city and a center city of China.
Zhengzhou is with a total population of nine million, five hundred and sixty nine thousand people of which four million, eight hundred ninety three thousand are living in the urban area. And this is just the beginning, more and more people are coming to this charming and beautiful city.
As a city of great assimilation, full of kind people and a very pleasant environment, Zhengzhou is walking upwards and forwards, forwards with unstoppable power.
