About Chengdu

Chengdu is a city on the rise, one you will want to visit again and again. Chengdu has a long and storied history. It has a unique cuisine with a huge number of hot and spicy dishes, as well as an enviously relaxed pace of life. Historic Jinli’s overpowering sense of enthralling antiquity, adorable giant pandas and avenues full of hotpot restaurants all call out to welcome visitors from near and far. On the outskirts of town, you can find quiet solace in peaceful Qingcheng Mountain or the bucolic ancient town of Anning. It is a vastly different side of Chengdu. Chengdu is also a fashionable city. The nightscape of Jiuyan (the Nine Arched) Bridge and the nearby Kuanzhai Alley truly make people feel the fast-paced pulse of the city.
