The capital of Sichuan, Chengdu is often referred to as “the land of milk & honey” due to its extremely fertile land, which is the natural habitat of the giant panda. Those seeking a tan may want to stay clear of Chengdu, being renowned for its lack of sun; though what it lacks in sun, it certainly makes up for in beauty, relaxation and culture. Through the day, visit Chengdu’s iconic giant pandas, saunter around the laid-back city and experience China’s ubiquitous tea-house culture first-hand, or explore the wonders of Sichuan cuisine at many of the family-owned restaurants. At night, bohemian poets and artists grace the Chengdu bars as live musicians bring the urban skyline to life.
