Mianyang with a long history occupies 20,249 square kilometers, with population 5,119,900.
Mianyang, called Fujun in ancient times, had been advanced in agriculture during the Qin (221BC-206BC) and Han (206BC-220AD) dynasties. It has a history over 2,200 thousand years since the Emperor Gaozu of Han established the first county in this area in 201BC. For the advantageous geographic location, it had always been a town of great military importance as a natural defence for Chengdu.
It enjoys rich culture and high technology development, so it is o­ne of the political, economic, technological, cultural and educational centers in Sichuan province. What's more, it is the manufacture center of color TV in China. Fu River runs through the city. Mianyang also enjoys abundant natural sources including coals, petroleum, gas, marble, barites and granite etc. There are 448,000 hectares of woods and 400,000 hectares of forest. The covering rate of forest is 16.4%.

Road
The distance between Mianyang and Chengdu is about 100 kilometers or so. There are two highways connecting these two cities: o­ne is called Dajian highway with good road condition and beautiful scenery; another is thruway, quick but a little boring to drive o­n. It is strongly suggested that from Chengdu to Guanghan you can choose the thruway, because during this stretch there are lots of trucks o­n the Dajian highway and there isn’t much beautiful scenery along this stretch. After Guanghan, you can get out of the thruway and get o­n the Dajian highway. In this stretch there are not so many trucks o­n the road, and the road condition is very nice. Driving o­n the road just like driving o­n the beautiful country road.

The fare of taxi is 3 yuan for the first 2 kilometres , and then 1.2 yuan per km
