Why should I travel to Tibet from Chengdu?
Chengdu, the capital of Sichuan province, is an amazing city that you will never want to leave. Known as a very laid-back and relaxed city, Chengdu is an ancient yet modern city abounding with diverse options for having fun. Here you can visit the Giant Pandas to help support efforts towards the long-term survival of this iconic and endangered symbol of Chengdu and China. Other historic legacy sites such as Jinli Old Street, Wenshu Temple, the Three Kingdoms-era Wuhou Temple, the Ming-Qing Dynasty neighborhoods of the Kuan-Zhai Alley and the ancient but still operational Dujiangyan Irrigation System can provide you with a fascinating look into both China’s past and present.
Anyone who wants to get up close and personal with a panda can find the perfect trip with our best panda trips, whether it is to the Chengdu Giant Panda Research and Breeding Center or the Dujiangyan Panda Base, where you can do volunteer work as a panda caretaker for a day. You can also find side trips to the Leshan Giant Buddha, the world’s largest stone carved Buddha, and the holy Mount Emei, one of the Four Sacred Mountains of Buddhism in China. Chengdu and its surrounding areas have so much to see and do, it truly is “The Land of Abundance”.
