Chengdu, capital of Sichuan province, is a city you never want to leave once you arrive. Reputed as a very “laid-back” city, it is so large and diverse abounding with options. You could visit the giant pandas, and support the efforts towards ensuring the survival of Chengdu iconic but endangered species. Or, you could take in other historic legacies, like Jinli Old Street, Wenshu Temple, Three Kingdoms-era Wuhou Temple, the more recent Ming-Qing neighborhoods of the Kuan-Zhai Alley, or the ancient and still-operational Dujiangyan Irrigation System.
