China's world famous giant pandas roam freely at the Chengdu Panda Base. This is a popular attraction for both locals and tourists; you can even take the free shuttle from the hotel and back.
Another place of interest is the Sichuan Science and Technology Museum. With interactive exhibits relating to science, you can take a break from the real world and explore the four stories of this museum.
"Chengdu is well-known for its traditional dish, hotpot. Tables in special restaurants are equipped with vats of hot spicy oil — with thin strips of meats and vegetables cooked right at the table. Our staff can direct you to the best hotpot restaurants in the city.
A walk through Wide and Narrow Alley is a must-do. This popular area of the city lined with restaurants, pubs, teahouses and shops."
Two relatively new modes of transportation are now available in Chengdu: Uber and Didi Taxi. Both allow you to book transportation through quick, easy-to-access phone apps. You can call for a private driver with Uber, while Didi Taxi also allows you to hail for a ride. Mass rapid transportation in Chengdu has also greatly improved over the years, providing even more transportation options.
Don't Go Home Without
Located on Panda Avenue just 3 miles from the hotel, Chengdu Panda Base is home to a number of endangered wildlife species, including China’s world famous giant pandas. You will marvel at the iconic giant pandas, adorable red pandas and black-necked crane, which all roam free on the base.
Take a hint from the locals, and try riding the bus when traveling through our city. Chengdu has an extensive city bus system with bus lines running to all major points throughout the city. You can avoid all the traffic and easily make your way from place to place.
