Your day experiencing life as a local in Chengdu begins with a meet up with your guide (or, if you happen to have a hotel within the Chengdu 2nd Ring area, you'll be able to get a pick up service). Your first stop is at the Chengdu Giant Panda base where you'll see these gentle giants who live in a protective enclosure made to resemble their natural habitats. Giant Pandas are increasingly rare due to the loss of their habitat or being hunted. In the Giant Panda Base, you'll discover about their life and ecosystems, as well as what the base does to continue to protect these majestic creatures. After lunch, you'll head to the Eastern Suburb Memory Park. This beautiful park is musically themed, and had been repurposed from the old factories that used to stand there. Here, you'll experience the vibrant color of the city as well as its culture from the art, music, fashion and other similar fields that can be found all around. Then it's off to see the Chengdu People's Park, a large, sprawling recreational area and designated as a Major Historical and Cultural Site of China. With its vast greenery, it's a popular location for locals who want to relax and enjoy the scenery, and thus a perfect place to study how everyday locals live their lives as well as learn stories about the park's history. You'll head to a historic tea house and enjoy a cup of covered bowl tea as your guide tells you stories about the city as well as historical facts. Your tour will end with you earning far greater knowledge about Chengdu and what it means to live there as a local.
