THE TOURISTY STUFF
THE PANDA BASE
Chengdu has many pandas. Pandas are the national treasure of China. You probably knew that; the city of Chengdu will never let you forget it. If you didn’t know, now you know.

The market at Jinli Street has been around since as early as the Qin Dynasty, when it was famous for its ornate cloths. It’s part of Chengdu’s old city and has endured as a place rife with traditional architecture, local snacks and crafts and more. A very popular destination, you can expect crowds here, especially on weekends. It’s also got all the trappings of your typical Chinese tourist trap, but if you’re an old hand at Xi’an’s Muslim District, you should have a good idea of what to expect (and therefore a good idea of how to avoid getting tourist trapped).

THE WAY OF THE DRAGON（小龙翻大江）
If you’re any good at reading Chinese, you’ll notice that there are not one but five characters for “fire” in this restaurant’s name (just in case you forgot that Sichuan food brings the spicy heat, I guess). Hot pot may be native to Chongqing but it’s ubiquitous in Chengdu, where you’ll enjoy more authentic variations of a food you’ve perhaps only tried in meaty, salty, sour Shaanxi. People seek out THE WAY OF THE DRAGON for their famously spicy and delicious hot pots, and so special decoration,so you’ll likely be breathing not one but five fires after a visit.
