Chengdu is found in the southwest of China, the capital of Sichuan province. Acting as the transport hub for the entire region, most travellers exploring the south west of China can stop by and see for themselves all the city has to offer.
Plenty of pandas!
If you like pandas, Chengdu is the place to visit. Home to China’s magnificent giant pandas, tourists and locals can view this animal in its natural habitat. The panda is a strong symbol of China; therefore, pandas are heavily protected by the government. Roughly 45 minutes from Citadines South Chengdu, the Panda Breeding and Research Centre gives an insight on how much Pandas are really valued in China.
The spicy food
Chengdu is found in the Sichuan province; therefore, it goes without saying that the food found in the city is quite spicy. The regional cuisine will take your taste buds on a real adventure, the spicy hot pot being the most popular dish! Step out of your Chengdu accommodation every once in a while, to experiment with the cuisine.
It is in Chengdu that you’ll find the worlds largest single building – the New Century Global Centre.

When in Chengdu, don’t miss out on the traditional Sichuan Opera! Acrobatics, fire-spitting, and illusionists are regular special features you’ll find in Sichuan Opera.
