5. Discover the lost city of Jinsha

In 2001, archeologists digging just north of downtown Chengdu were amazed to discover a treasure trove of gold, jade, and bronze objects. As they kept digging, it quickly became apparent that they had unearthed the 3,000-year-old lost city of Jinsha (meaning 'golden sands' in English), making this one of the most fascinating and significant archaeological discoveries of the 21st century.
