Chengdu

Without a doubt, Chengdu is the place to visit if you’re in search of seeing the Giant Pandas and their lesser known cousins the Red Pandas.

Every year, visitors flock to the panda centres of Chengdu to view these unique creatures in their natural habitat.

Not just all about the pandas, Chengdu, the capital of the mountainous Sichuan Province, is also famous for its spicy hot pot and many other mouth tingling dishes, with the renowned Sichuan peppercorn grown widely in this region.

To try these distinctive flavours head to Jinli Old Street, a recreational and cultural street; Wide and Narrow Alley (Kuanzhai Xiangzi) with many restaurants, pubs and teahouses; or Chunxi Road the Nanjing Road of Chengdu.

Offering a great city to spend a few nights, enjoy an afternoon in a teahouse, be mesmerised by a Sichuan Opera performance, perhaps the renowned Bianlian (Changing Faces) or beyond the city centre, visit the nearby areas of Leshan and Emeishan.
