Chengdu is a tourist's paradise with a wide range of landscapes from snow-capped mountains, green plains to rugged hills. Fond of adventure? Visit the western mountains and the lowest latitude ski field in China and primary forests. There are the eastern suburbs, blooming with flowers all year round, where you can sit in the bamboo groves, have a cup of tea and learn mahjong from the natives. Afterwards return to the downtown area on Yangxi Street for delicious Sichuan dishes and hot pots, and visit Chunxi Road, a shopping paradise lined with department stores and real bargains from whole-sale clothing plazas.
Chengdu has numerous scenic spots both in and around the city. The world’s largest sitting Buddha in Leshan is 71m tall and the Sanxingdui Museum in Guanghan County houses impressive giant bronze wares. Both are just an hour or two away by bus from the Xinnanmen Center.
It is said that “chi zai zhong guo, wei zai si chuan” - when eating in China, the flavor is in Sichuan. This makes the provincial capital Chengdu the best place to have good Chinese food. Sichuanese cuisine is known for being numbingly hot. However, its flavors can be rather complex and it is possible to have 100 different tasting dishes. Chengdu natives are gourmets, they discuss cuisine, talk about the new dishes of a certain restaurant, enjoy the hotpots, snacks, Sichuan dishes and the international cuisines every day. Most restaurants in Chengdu are open until 9:30 PM.
One of the first things a visitor notices about Chengdu is how much the locals love to spend a couple of hours in the company of good friends over a cup of coffee and tea, and this is one great way to spend a few hours between sights.
Chengdu has a wide range of choices of drinking and clubbing venues and you will definitely find your favorite place. Most bars and clubs are located at the Yulin neighborhood and stay open between 8:00 PM to 2:00 AM.
The province of Sichuan is home to several of China’s minority ethnic groups so its capital Chengdu is one of the best places to explore the array of intricate crafts created painstakingly by hand. You will also be greeted by colorful TangKas and solemn Buddha statues.
