Welcome To Chengdu
Other Chinese cities like Shanghai and Beijing are overpowering this little under the radar city that many foreign travellers will appreciate more in the future. The city offers an array of experiences from visiting the museums, walking down the riverside, having your heart melt away by the giant cute pandas, and going into a food coma from eating a lot of spicy, numbing and fragrant Sichuan cuisines. The relaxing, warm, and vibrant atmosphere of the city will get you sipping some teas in their traditional teahouses. If you are down for a little outdoor excursion, Chengdu is surrounded by mountains. Just a few short hours drive and 4-7 days worth of stay, you'll feel like you are on top of the world and witness some breathtaking views from your hikes and campsites. If you're just looking for something that will satisfy your palate, there are plenty of food hubs and food streets for some traditional Sichuan cuisines. This city is not for anyone who is on a diet, pack some stretchy pants and get ready. You'll thank me later for this one!
