What to expect

Explore the best of Chengdu in one day with a friendly English-speaking local who will take you around the city’s scenic spots. Your guide will pick you up from your hotel and bring you to Taikoo Li where you can experience the perfect blending of ancient and modern as you stroll across contemporary retail establishments combined with recreated lane patterns and preserved buildings. Next stop is the Chengdu Museum where you can learn more about the splendid history of China’s fourth largest city. Right in time for lunch, your guide will bring you to Jinli Old Street where you can munch on local delicacies and do a bit of souvenir shopping from the many folk handicraft shops. Jinli is known as “First Street of Shu Kingdom” and the buildings here are modeled on the architectural style of a traditional town in western Sichuan Province from the Qing Dynasty. After lunch, you’ll get to participate in uniquely Chengdu activities at People’s Park where expert dancers, singers, tea makers and ear pickers/cleaners converge. Final stop is The Wide and Narrow Alleys, which are the epitome of the old life of Chengdu. The area is composed of three parallel ancient streets and complex of courtyard houses that are protected heritage sites. After a full day of sightseeing, try out some recommended local dishes for dinner before heading back to your hotel.
